How do you remove the section/lesson menu in rise?
Hi there Lisa!
The Rise menu to navigate between lessons will appear on the left side of the course, and your learners can hide the menu by clicking the three bars icon in the upper right corner.
Can you tell me more about what you were hoping to achieve by removing the lesson menu completely? With a few more details, I can recommend a workaround or alternative solution.
Rise navigation is quite a bit different than what our users are use to. While I like it a lot, I was hoping to ease them into it more by making this first course we're releasing using rise, navigate a little more similarly to how our other Storyline courses navigate. To do that I was going to eliminate the sidebar menu. Create my own "sections" menu section page which has buttons to navigate to each individual section (the end of each section navigates back to the same "sections" menu page). After they complete/visit each section, I was hoping to use the continue block set to "complete all blocks above" to reveal the "next block" on that menu page which is a button to link to the assessment and end of the course. Does that make sense?
That makes sense, Lisa! Those are great ideas, and I've shared them with our team. It's helpful to know how this would impact your course development and any other use cases for the feature.
If you're comfortable with a bit more custom work, you could look at Zsolt's example here. It's based on branching a Rise course, and it allows the lessons or blocks that a user doesn't visit to be hidden.
Thanks I did review that and may try it out. Much appreciated!
You're welcome, and good luck on the rest of your project! 😀
We would also be interested in this functionality for much of the same reasons.
One thing I've done is communicate the changes to my team and SMEs. It's getting out of the old slide based mentality and consume content much like they do on their ipads or PCs at home. I can say that I've had to divert from storyline for a few years because of the style. Rise is refreshing!
I agree with Lisa and Justin. I would like to see the option to turn the Menu on or off. As James mentions...Rise is refreshing. The menu turned off would provide a look and feel more like a web page.
Thanks for adding your voice, Rachel! It's helpful to know just how in-demand the feature is. ☺️
Totally agree, it would be really helpful.
Is it possible to add custom CSS styling to the menu?
Can i make suggestion for the dev team too .... it would be great to be able to toggle 'visible' lessons/pages on the menu screen! That way we can hide content and link from buttons or similar without user seeing all the content etc.
Hey Paul! I've got this one in for you, but you can always share your future ideas directly with our team here.
Thanks Michael - it looks like you commented on a similar one. We do have this idea sent off to our team to remove the built in Rise menu, and this discussion and the other one are both tagged for an update once we have more to share!
Great news, everyone –
I wanted to let you all know that you can now customize the sidebar's visibility in Rise! Check out Adam's post here for additional information and a quick video!
We hope you enjoy, and please let us know if you have any other suggestions or feedback either here or via our product feature request form. Thanks again for sharing your thoughts with us!
I believe learners can mark lessons as complete if button turned on. How would they do this ? By clicking on circle in contents ?
That's a setting you can enable in your Rise course settings - take a look here at the bottom setting for "Marking Lessons Complete"
Thanks very much Ashley !
may I ask about the location of the side menu, as it always on the left
can I adjust the location the right side of the course
thanks in advance
Hi there, Humanitarian Leadership Academy! The sidebar always displays on the left.
Hi - is there any way to hide one lesson from the left-side menu, but leave the rest as visible?
Hi Leslie, Rise is not able to hide just one Lesson.
Why do you need to do this?
