Akumina Framework/Foundation Site Functionality

  • Introduced the Akumina Widget Builder, which provides developers with a development tooling/process (inside Visual Studio Code using Node.js) and automated packaging tools that ensure widgets are built with the new Akumina Widget structure so they can fully integrate with the Akumina tool set. (The “akumina-widget-builder” package can be found on
  • All Akumina Widgets built with the new enhanced Widget Model and packaged for portability
  • Akumina Foundation Site now deployed with new enhanced widgets
  • All new “Add Page” functionality which allows authorized users to create a new page and add widgets to that page all from the front end site with no need to access SharePoint.
  • Added Content Quick Edit – quickly jump right from a front-end content item to its Edit screen in AppManager
  • Akumina Tray Widget (spinner) now supports permissioning of each tray item to control access to the tray functions (and the tray itself)
  • Document Viewer is now the default document management solution deployed in the Foundation Site (replaces DMS)
  • Reorganized and simplified the Widget Properties Panel for better usability – this includes quick preview of view selections
  • Added the “digitalWorkplace.env.js” file, which is where the InterchangeURL and the InterchangeQueryKey are now stored. They will no longer be stored in the digitalWorkplace.custom.js. The site creator will use the same logic on this file for replacing the “tokens” based on the inputs from site creator. This way, the digitalWorkplace.custom.js can be deployed for testing and final production without worrying about cleaning out the environment variables.
  • Performance enhancements on the core page lifecycle steps to take advantage of the $batching API
  • Added “Performance” tab to the debug screen which displays execution times for all of the steps in the page lifecycle to help with performance optimization
  • Added more support for offloading SharePoint queries to Akumina web APIs to reduce load on O365


AppManager Functionality

  • All new AppManager user interface, focused on significantly improving the user experience in both look and feel, and most importantly in usability and productivity.
  • Enhanced the Akumina Widget Model and Widget Manager to support Auto Provisioning Widgets – which automates the creation of the supporting list assigning of content types and term sets when creating a new widget instance
  • All Akumina Widgets added to the Widget Store (50+ widgets) for easy addition to any project
  • Widget Store enhanced with one-step “Upgrade” function to get the latest changes to any existing widgets – this allows for quick upgrades or patches of widgets without having to update the core framework
  • Added ability to set permissions on a content item in Author Type apps
  • Added instance count to Widget Manager for each definition (on View Instances button)
