Create a mega menu on communication sites and hub sites

Mega menus enable site navigation to be displayed at-a-glance on communication pages and hub sites. This increases the value of a site by engaging your audience in discovering more content than ever before.

Example of a mega menu

Mega menus are ideal for:

  • Navigation that requires three levels of hierarchy

  • Increasing the likelihood of resources being discovered

  • Enabling your audience to engage in using new tools and content


  • Only administrators and site owners can create a mega menu.

  • Mega menus cannot be created on team sites.

Change from a cascade menu to a mega menu: 


  1. Start by identifying the three levels of hierarchy.
