Navigational alternative to tabs



  • In our very specific use case for a certain audience, users can set settings though interactive graphs. These graphs have a set name and a number. There could be as many as 10 graphs. For reasons these graphs are called 'groups'

    Now each graph is allowed to be different so I can't group the tabs. I think having a lot of tabs is kind of subjectively ugly and it might be cumbersome to switch between graphs. It also takes up a lot of horizontal space which might be an issue for smaller screens (although all our users are desktop users at the moment).

    Is there a navigational UX alternative to having a row of tabs?



  • Nesting Tabs

    It's an alternative when grouping isn't possible: a horizontal panel with nested tabs.

    Horizontal Navigation

    Just one page with horizontal scrolling site + pagination

    Full-height Navigation Tabs

    Just one page with vertical tabs, the number of tabs are the same but being vertical they take up less space.
