You can give your readers quick access to the articles/sections of your publication through the Table of Contents button that appears in the banner toolbar of both the desktop Flipbook and mobile Flipbook interfaces.

The list that appears on this button is pulled from the "articles (table of contents)" list, found in the Page Editor tool.
