Go with the Flow for Your Custom Global Navigation

Do your business owners need to update custom navigation links? Does your custom navigation control break every time someone edits the links?

In this session we will walk through creating a multi-level SPFx custom mega menu. We will create a dynamic way for non-technical business users to create and edit navigation items. Next, we will use Flow to pull it all together connecting the dynamically generated data to the mega menu.

You have the best of both worlds- an easy to read and performant data structure with an easy way for business users to edit the navigation elements. Remove yourself as the roadblock to update the navigation and help end users help themselves.
