I'm designing a dashboard with a side menu that can collapse and expand using the icon at the top, because we need the horizontal space.
So the user can interact with the collapsed menu and go to a new page by clicking on any of the menu icons.
The problem I'm having is that some of the menu items have sub-items, which will not be visible in the collapsed state. How do I allow the user to select one of those sub-items while the menu is in a collapsed state? Any best practices here? I thought of using a tooltip on hover but that seems like a clunky method to me.
