How to configure sidebar in Confluence Cloud?

Have used Confluence Server for many years. Have always been able to configure the sidebar to show the page hierarchy for quick navigation. Started using Confluence Cloud recently. I am the site admin, but I cannot figure out how to configure the sidebar. The "Space Tools" gear is showing up, but I don't see anything about turning on the page hierarchy anywhere. Guidance appreciated.

Hi Greig,

It sounds like you answered your own question, and as far as I know the sidebar doesn't need to be customized in order to display the page tree. But if you're switching to Cloud, you might want to be aware that sidebar customization isn't possible in the new version that's rolling out:

Ok... So I suppose that's a "nevermind." It appears when you go to the main "Page" page the hierarchy doesn't show up in the sidebar. But when you go to any page in the space THEN the hierarchy shows up on the left. So it seems like there's no concept of "configure sidebar" anymore. I guess...
