  1. Tabs

  2. Using lists as menus

Tabs

Tabs are the main and most straightforward way you can present screens to users. Tabs can live in two places; at the bottom of your app or in the App Menu.

At the bottom of your app's screen

Link to screen

Instead of using Tabs to navigate to screens, you can use the Link to Screen Action. This action can be enabled on components like the Button and Image component. Read more below!

Use lists as menus

By default, list items link to each item's details screen. However, you can change the action to be 'Independent Screen Configuration' and customize each screen individually.

This way – lists can act as custom menus. Read more here.
