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.

I forget if I have commented on one of these threads or not (there are a few on removing the Rise menu) ... as I don't understand Javascript and can't get Zsolt's example to work (his finished version is great though!), I would really love this option of removing the menu to be implemented soon. Fingers crossed!

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!
