Updated navigation experience
Now you can dock the secondary navigation within Sprout so you never lose your place. When you hover off of the left-hand navigation, it collapses by default. You can choose to either dock the secondary navigation to keep it open or collapse it altogether. Sprout automatically remembers your last preference for navigation docking, so the navigation behavior you want persists throughout your experience.
For example, if you dock the secondary navigation in the Smart Inbox, then navigate to the Reports section and then come back to the Smart Inbox, the Smart Inbox will still have the secondary navigation expanded.
