How to add a list link to the Quick Launch in SharePoint 2016


To create a shortcut to a list, you may add the link on the Quick Launch menu. You need
to be a site owner or have edit permissions to be able to make changes to the navigation
of a site.
Just navigate to the list whose link you want to add to the navigation pane, go to List
Settings, click on “List name, description and navigation”, and select “yes” under
“Display this list on the Quick Launch”.
The list link added to the menu will function as a dynamic link; any changes to the list
name will automatically reflect on the Quick Launch menu.
To prioritize access to the most frequently visited lists, drag and drop the link to change
the position up or down.

Watch the short video below to see the steps.
