My current sidebar setup looks like this:
The sidebar is present on multiple pages and can include:
- section ('employees' is a section) specific information (lists that section pages have in common)
- page ('doctors' is a page) specific information
- page specific settings (such as filters for the content under the tabs)
Now I came up with an alternative layout that brings the sidebar next to the page header and not under it:
A possible advantage would be that the buttons in the page header would be easier to spot. But at the same time, the sidebar seems more disconnected from rest of the page, making page specific settings (like filtering) not fit too well.
What do you guys think?
