Menu Groups & Menu Widgets

Feature Description:  

New feature to allow admins to set up additional menu groups and add those menu groups as widgets to the global sidebar or specific pages. The Menu groups can be targeted by our designers for further design flexibility. Please email elevate-support@gocadmium.comto turn this feature on for you. 

Use case examples:

1.  A side bar menu group for search by categories or product types to quickly take the user to those pages with those defined pieces of content without having to search in the catalog

2. A virtual conference or special event in Elevate using a Design Blade. Use the menu group to add to your conference pages instead of a hard coded menu so you have more flexibility in making menu changes.

Admin Settings:

Under content management> menu groups

To add a new Menu group, click Add New Menu. Give your menu a name and select if you wish to include icons then click save.
