I have an sidebar similar to this example
Home Objects Management* Foo Bar Baz
Objects > Management is basically a list of all objects. Each object has a detail view. Workflow:
Navigate to Objects > Management Click *details* on a single object
No problem so far.
Problem: The detail view of an object has many sections
Info, Equipment, Devices, Foo, Bar, etc
One solution could be using tabs within the content like this
SIDEBAR | CONTENT | | | | | | _TAB_TAB_TAB_TAB________________| | | | | | ... | | | | |
Now I've escaped the menu(sidebar) structure since I'm in a single object. But I've many thousand objects so I can't link to each object in the sidebar like
Home Objects Management Object 1 Object 2 ...
One workaround is to use breadcrumbs in this situation. I think it's OK.
But we actually want to avoid the tab-system and integrate it in the sidebar - where navigation usually happens.
We could add the selected object dynamically to the sidebar. Well that's just super weird
Home Objects Management *Selected Object* Info Equipment Devices Foo
My actual question:
How can I organize my navigation structure to avoid using tabs // how can I integrate my current tab structure into the sidebar?
