The custom list is a fundamental building block of your guide. It is a menu item that houses content for your users. You can add as many custom lists as you need to provide information to your users.
Each custom list will have a name and an icon. Your custom lists can be placed on the main menu itself, or they can live inside a folder if you have a lot of content to keep organized.
Here are some examples of Custom Lists you might include in your guide:
- Speakers or Presenters
- Award Winners
- Staff Members
- Departments on Campus
- Nearby Restaurants or Attractions
- Glossary of Terms
- Presentation Materials or Abstracts
In your guide in Builder, please click on “Add a new feature” in the top-left corner of the screen. Scroll to find “custom list”.
If you are using a template, you might see some pre-loaded lists like “Sponsors” or “Campus Resources” in your menu. These are all lists of content you can customize.
Click to add a “Custom List” to your guide. Then click on the Custom List in the menu to edit it.
Visit the “Settings” tab to give your list a name and change the icon if you would like.
Inside a Custom List, you add List Items. Each list item is a "page" of content. This is a great place for a couple paragraphs of text, for example.
In the list's Settings tab, you can choose to display your list items in a traditional stacked list view or in a grid view, to show off the thumbnail images.
If you would like to display a single list item on the navigation menu, please click here for instructions on creating one-tap menu items.
Highlight a Custom List in your Cover Page
Every guide comes with the ability to use a Cover Page. A Cover Page is a great way to highlight important information in your guide and help drive traffic to specific Custom Lists. Here is an example of a Cover Page with a highlighted Speakers Custom List:
