I have had discussions with a number of institutions looking for a way to add custom items to the left hand navigation in the new UI.
Like these schools, we have some items we have customized for our faculty and students that we would like to bring over to the new UI.
The icing on the cake would also be the ability for the navigation to be targeted to a user's roles (additional resources for teachers verses resources for students) and if there was a way to choose an icon.
I understand that there is limited space in the left navigation for smaller screen sizes, but this would be a wonderful addition to the existing customization options in the new UI.
