Having a table of contents is so beneficial especially for offering readers an overview of the publication's contents and organization. So in this article, I'll tell you all you need to know about importing a table of contents from PDFs to your flipbooks.

Note: This feature is available starting from the Professional plan.

How do I add a table of contents to my flipbook?

In order to have a table of contents in your flipbook, you need to have a table of contents, properly formatted in your PDF. Here’s how to properly make a table of contents in Adobe InDesign and Adobe Acrobat Pro.

If your PDF file contains a table of contents, this feature will be available and you will be prompted the message We've detected a table of content in your document. Enable this option to display them in your flipbook player.

If your PDF file does not contain a table of contents or if the table of contents is not formatted properly, the Table of contents option will be disabled and you will be prompted the following message: We didn't detect a table of contents in your document, so this option is unavailable.

Once you have uploaded your PDF file, go to the Customize tab and check the Table of contents option.

Checking this option will add a table of contents icon in the top menu bar in your flipbook, while viewed in full-screen. 

When clicked, your table of contents menu will appear on the left side of your flipbook and you can quickly click on all the chapter titles or anchors, to flip your publication to a certain page.

Note: In the Modern and Enhanced skins, the table of contents menu will appear on the right side of your flipbook, while in the Classic skin, you'll find it on the left side.
