The slide tree panel is exposed in the Story Board design time interface and contains the listing of slides contained in a dashboard and provides the main mechanism for users to open up various slides during the dashboard design process. The panel's default position is on the left of the screen.
View the Slide Tree Panel
To view the slide tree panel if it is collapsed, click on the hidden panel and then click the "pin" in the top right hand corner to permanently pin it up. To collapse and hide the panel, click the pin button again.
When the slide tree panel is open, double clicking on the selected slide will open the item into the slide canvas panel.
Clicking the "New Slide" button in the Home tab will automatically add a new slide to the end of the slide tree. You can also add a new slide from the slide tree context menu.
With the slide tree panel visible, users can perform of maintenance functions. Tree maintenance is not committed to the server UNTIL the dashboard is saved.
Click on a slide and drag-and-drop it to the target position in the tree. An orange bar line highlights where in the slide tree structure the slide will appear.

Slide sections provide convenient groupings of slides. In runtime, the sections also provide a second tier presentation of slides so that they can be designed with a two-tier navigation. See here for more.

Right clicking on a section provides a context menu (blue highlight) to rename sections, remove a specific section, remove the current section and its child slides and to remove all sections (without removing slides).
