SharePoint 2010 Tree Navigation

Posted on 2012-08-14
Last Modified: 2012-08-22

I have a standard SP2010 deployment (actually using MS's Office 365) and need to replace the Quick Launch with a tree navigation menu that will display sites, sub-sites, pages, lists, etc. in a parent-child hierarchal fashion similar to Windows Explorer.  The menu will need to sync with the bread crumbs as well as users navgiate the site.  I'm willing to purchase a web-part or component that does this.  It needs to be scalable and to automatically update as new sites and documents are added.  Any ideas?

    I am not familiar with Office 365 you might use the Out-of-the-box tree view:

    Office 365 is just a cloud implementation of SP, but it should impact the UI.  The out-of-the box tree view isn't what I'm looking for.  Please see the attached image for an example of the Nav element I'm interested in developing.
