This section contains a walk-through on how to quickly enable an existing Flex Directory and how to display it within the Grav admin. In our examples we are using the Contacts Flex Directory which comes included with the Flex Objects Plugin for demonstration purposes.
To enable a custom Flex Directory, you need to go to Plugins > Flex Objects.
We are interested in the Directories configuration setting which lists all the detected Flex Directories. Find the directories you're wanting to enable and ensure the Enabled option is checked.
For this demonstration, let's enable the Contacts directory and click Save at the top.
After the page reloads, you should see a new item in the Grav Admin menu titled Contacts.
For our example, we assume that you have copied the sample data set for Contacts Directory:
$ cp user/plugins/flex-objects/data/flex-objects/contacts.json user/data/flex-objects/contacts.json
After this you can click on Continue button.
In the Content Editor enter directory and add content:
# Directory Example
When you are happy with the page, hit Save.

In case if you did not select any directory, this is what you would see instead:
