The Info-3-Tier feature is essentially a blank slate where you can create enter any content, including text, images, embedded videos, and hyperlinks to your app pages in a folder-like structured menu. 

The Info-3-Tier is a part of the Info-X-Tier family (along with the Info-1-Tier and Info-2-Tier) giving you the option to create a structure of folders-items that can have up to 1 layer of subfolders. That is, you get the list and then you have to click into an item list to get the content meaning that you have to click twice to access the content. For example, Tier-1 is the ITEM LIST/CATEGORIES, Tier-2 is the ITEM LIST/SUB-CATEGORY and Tier-3 is the ITEM DETAILS.

The Info-3-Tier feature is especially useful when your content does not fit in the WebSite feature or other available features.

Any industry can benefit from using the Info-3-Tier feature to build pages in BuscaApps. For example, it allows affiliates and partners to design and advertise special offer pages within their apps quickly.
