Good afternoon. I wanted to ask if it is currently possible to create a submenu in the andromo app?

    Sub menus are a feature that still needs to be implemented on the website. (It's already there in the engine but there is no user interface for it yet.)

    If you need a solution right now, it is technically possible to create a menu using special "andromo://" links on HTML pages that direct to an activity in your project. You would need to create the links on an HTML-based activity (a Custom Page or HTML Archive activity) for each level in your submenu. See:

    Thank you very much for your answer. I wanted to ask you something more:

    Is it possible to use the html code (of the structure) that exist at this moment in the dashboard to make a sub menu similar graphically?

    No, because the dashboard does not use HTML -- the dashboard is implemented using native Android components.

    Colin's suggestion was to use one of the HTML-based activityies as an alternative to the app's native Android dashboard.

    There is no way to mix the two approaches, except to use the native dashboard for your outermost level, and use custom HTML pages for the "sub" levels. There is no way to visibly show the "sub" levels on the main dashboard at all, unless you were to replace the main dashboard with your own HTML list of some kind, making use of the andromo:// links to open your various activities from HTML. That approach is possible, but as with any other HTML content it is not something we can assist you with at all.

    Good morning. I wanted to ask one last question before renewing my membership.

    Is it possible to have some activities and that they do not go to the main menu?

    Because there are some activities that are exclusive to the sub menu

    Each activity contains a checkbox in it's settings labeled "Hide this activity (don't list it on any dashboards or navigation drawer)". I believe that is what you're looking for.
