We have a SharePoint site within a site collection. That site has a couple of items in the left navigation, e.g.

* Projects
* Employees
* Tasks

Is there a way, that if I click on Projects, the navigation expands so that there is a subnav like this:

* Projects
  - Project A
  - Project B
  - Project C
* Employees
* Tasks

If yes? How can I do that? Can I do that only by using the Frontend? Or do I have to use something like the SharePoint Designer?

  • So I'll need the SP Designer in order to add the asset files (CSS/JS). I'll try if I can manage that... Apr 19, 2016 at 14:26
  • Yes and you need to update the master page. It is a good thing to learn Apr 19, 2016 at 14:28
  • Do you know a good resource on how to update the master...? Apr 19, 2016 at 14:37
