Greetings to all,

 

Can I duplicate left navigation menu items between site collections easily?  Expect No.

 

Can I somehow get submenu navigation items in the left nav to auto expand upon page open...also expecting a No.

 

Any help appreciated!

 

Scott

You could programmatically configure the navigation for each site so you configure it to be the same for every site

As i think you refer to the new modern look this is not possible as far as i know at this moment. Have some clients who also wanted this have not found a option for that.

Hi Scott,

 

without prgramming it's just possible with this solution I have found here:

Straight forward and easy to install.

 

Cheers,

Frank
