left-hand sidebar navigation menu only recognizes pages?

We are using the "Staff" function to post our staff members. We'd like that content to be linked to the left-hand navigation menu, but that only seems to recognize pages, not custom links. Is there a way to include a custom link (or link to a post category) in that menu? Alternatively, is there a way to call a particular staff department using a shortcode on a page?
