Create and Manage Lists in Your App

Organize and display the data within your app with lists. 

News, events, places, products… all these are items that we present as part of lists. Each item on a list can be expanded by clicking, allowing the User to see additional details. For example, here is a list of people in an organization:


We’ve already covered the simple creation of a People list HERE (People module)
Now well go a bit further and talk about list customization options. We’ll use the People module as an example, but, most of the customization options also apply to other lists, such as Books, Menu, Photos…
List Sections
Once you create a list, you can break it down into Sections. For example, your company may have different teams, like Development, Customer Support, HR, etc. You can create a matching section for each team
Create a section by clicking Add section (top tab bar).
Add an item into a section (i.e., a person into a team) by clicking the arrow down icon in the Sections column. 
One item can be added into multiple sections (i.e., one person may be on multiple teams).

Each section will show up in the menu. The default setting is for all items on a given list to show up.

Sections and sorting options are available for all lists in your app with the exception of Places module. The list of places will be ordered by “distance”.
