Hello,

I can not seem to get banner content items to display as options with in the Default Collection menu. I am previewing from the AEMM Preflight app on iOS. Is this a functionality that should work?

The idea is to have Banner items that link out (think of a FAQ hosted page) that are presented in the default collection as a menu option. When tapped on the content item would load in the device foreground. Currently it seems I would need to create an Article for this purpose. It would be preferred to link out to content that already exists if possible.

I understand that the default collection is one that is downloaded to the users device to enable a better offline experience. Could this be the limitation here?

Am I missing something?

Thank you,

Tony Clemente

Hi Tony, You cannot do this with banners, they will not be shown in the app menu and only appear in browse pages. Creating an article would be one method. You could have that article load an iframe to the hosted FAQ, so that you pull in the existing content.

Hello Nathan,

Thank you for your response. So, I am not missing anything in this regard. I also, thought of the iFrame method however, that seems a little too indirect and more labor intensive than I was hopping would be required for such a simple idea.

Is it possible to submit this as a potential feature request?
