How The Side Menu Works

How The Side Menu Works

This article will briefly explain what the side menu is in a Gallus Golf mobile app and how to manage the content that is displayed within it.

What Is The Side Menu?

The side menu of an app can be accessed by clicking the three lines at the top-left of the Home Screen:


While the Home Screen is meant to have only 8-10 buttons (for featured items in the app), the Side Menu is far more conducive to containing all possible pages of content. Every new Gallus app includes full integration with a club's website in the side menu to provide the maximum coverage. 

If your app does not have full integration with your website (i.e., it does not have every page from your website in the Side Menu), please send us an email at support@gallusgolf.com so we can set it up for you.

Setting Up Your App's Side Menu



Direct-Link Buttons go to one url destination that is designated by you. For more information on adding a multi-level folder, please move on to the next section.
  1. Log into your admin dashboard.
  2. On the Quick Start page, click Side Menu.

  3. On the ensuing page, click Add Button at the top-left of the screen (next to the green "+").


  4. Disregard the photo section- this will not display in the app.
  5. Enter a Title (i.e., what you'd like the button to say in the app).
  6. Disregard Description, as this will not display in the app.
  7. Make sure the circle next to Action is filled in (not Folder).
  8. Select an Action. Either:
    1. Open Website: Place any url in to frame it within the app.
    2. Go To App Page: Choose from the following:
      1. Food & Beverage
      2. News
      3. Tee Times
      4. Leaderboard
      5. Mobile Check-In (if it's enabled for your app)
  9. Click Add.
  10. Done! Continue adding items as necessary.

Adding A Folder Button


Folder Buttons go to a sub-menu first where users can choose from a number of options you designate. See above for an example of how this looks.
  1. Log into your admin dashboard.
  2. On the Quick Start page, click Side Menu.

  3. On the ensuing page, click Add Button at the top-left of the screen (next to the green "+").


  4. Disregard the photo section- this will not display in the app.
  5. Enter a Title (i.e., what you'd like the button to say in the app).
  6. Disregard Description, as this will not display in the app.
  7. Make sure the circle next to Folder is filled in (not Action).
  8. Click Add.
  9. Scroll down on the page and click the title you just added. This will bring you to a subpage that looks exactly the same as the previous page, without all of the buttons added to your Side Menu. From here, you can follow the same process to add buttons to your folder:
    1. Click Add Button at the top-left of the screen (next to the green "+").

    2. Select either a stock photo or upload your own image, which will display as the button (see above screenshot).
    3. Enter a Title (i.e., what you'd like the button to say in the app).
    4. If you'd like, enter a Description. This should be a brief summary of what will be contained within the button.
    5. Make sure the circle next to Action is filled in (not Folder, unless you'd like to create another folder within this one).
    6. Select an Action... Either:
      1. Open Website: Place any url in to frame it within the app.
      2. Go To App Page: Choose from the following:
        1. Food & Beverage
        2. News
        3. Tee Times
        4. Leaderboard
        5. Mobile Check-In (if it's enabled for your app)
    7. Click Add.

Deleting A Side Menu Button

  1. Log into your admin dashboard.
  2. On the Quick Start page, click Side Menu.
  3. On the ensuing page, click the trash can icon next to the button you'd like to delete, then confirm.

Changing The Order of Side Menu Buttons

  1. Log into your admin dashboard.
  2. On the Quick Start page, click Side Menu.
  3. On the ensuing page, click and hold the yellow arrows next to the button you'd like to move.

  4. Drag and drop as necessary.

Why Can't I Remove Some Buttons In The Side Menu?

Some items are hard-coded in the Side Menu and cannot be removed or hidden. They are as follows:
  1. Scorecard
  2. Leaders (Leaderboards)
  3. Tee Times
  4. Monthly Tournament Series
  5. Food & Beverage
  6. News
  7. My Profile
  8. Contact Info & Directions
Buttons added in by you (the app manager) are displayed in the Side Menu in-between Monthly Tournament Series and Food & Beverage.
