Adding a Table of Contents to an Article

Create a table of contents (TOC) so readers can easily navigate your article's sections. The TOC displays on the side of your article and consists of the article's anchored subtitles. Customers can navigate directly to relevant subtitles when they click within the TOC. 
Customers can click any heading from your TOC to quickly go to the relevant section on the page. Each anchor has a unique URL so you can link directly to specific sections of articles. Keep in mind that your TOC reflects your heading level hierarchy with H2 subtitles furthest to the left and H3 - H4 subtitles indented to the right. 
Note:
Your TOC does not display on smaller screen resolutions and mobile devices to ensure your article's content ratio is preserved.
