Creating a Sidebar Menu Widget for Employee Center

In this video I’ll show you how to create a sidebar menu widget for Employee Center in ServiceNow. As usual, I love to start by showing the art of the possible, and then I’ll walk you through a basic implementation of the sidebar widget and explain the components needed to make it work. Keep in mind, this tutorial focuses on how to create the sidebar, but not the menu itself as that widget is much more complex.

I’ve packaged up everything into an Update Set that you can download below.

  1. Hi,
    I did import the updateset in my PDI running Washington version but the sidebar menu changes are not reflected. Pls check at your end and let me know.

    1. It does not make changes to your existing portals. You need to look at the new Sidebar portal that implements the theme.
