Hi,

I think you want to make changes in this file:
$SPLUNK_HOME$/etc/apps/myApp/local/data/ui/nav/default.xml

or maybe in this one (iff you develope your own app):
$SPLUNK_HOME$/etc/apps/myApp/default/data/ui/nav/default.xml

Docs: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.2.2/AdvancedDev/BuildNavigation

Edit:

Let's say all your alerts within an app have an identifying prefix alrt_. Then you can add an dynamic sub menu using this entry:

...
<collection label="Alerts">
<saved source="all" match="alrt_" />
</collection>
...

As mentioned in the docs you can add dynamic sub menus, also for alerts. I extended my answer with en edit. Hope this helps.
