In a banking mobile app, all menu items have chevrons but some of them open bottom sheet instead of going to a new page. In the example below, Menu Item 1 can open a bottom sheet where as Menu Item 2 goes to the its own flow.

Question: Do you think it is confusing to use chevrons when the item opens a bottom sheet? Or would it be more confusing if some of the menu items have chevrons and some of them won't?

Thanks, I am looking forward for any opinions.

    If it's going to open a bottom sheet, use the v chevron. If it's going to open a new page, stick with the > chevron. May 17, 2022 at 10:51

    In addition to Luke's suggestion, you can make the bottom sheets as accordions instead of opening so far down below.

  • @luke I think v will be confused with an accordion

  • @Shahriar Which, as Steve points out, is what it should be anyway. Separating the menu item from its content by other menu items is not a great idea. May 18, 2022 at 20:25

If the items have different behaviors, then they shouldn't have a similar icon.
What I suggest is a button. enter image description here
