I am designing a dashboard. Here is the sections in the dashboard:

  • Reports
  • Items
  • Contacts

Inside each section will be a list. I am not sure if the list below is grammatically correct since the section names above are all plural.

  • Reports List
  • Items List
  • Contacts List

I am aware of another option which is 'List of (section name)' but this is a bit too long and is only kept as the last option.

I create similar dashboards. I don't think it matters that much but I would allow the word "List" to do the work of the plural for each and use the singular of the categories. It is a list, or plurality, of reports so it is correct to say a Report list etc.
