Understanding Akumina Content Manager Functions

The Akumina Content Manager enables authorized users access to content authoring modules from the front-end framework.  Each module can be individually permissioned using the Module Permissions Management App. This allows the site administrator to control which SharePoint Security Groups will have access to view and edit each function.  SharePoint Security Groups assigned will have access to the functions throughout the entire site.

Authorized users will have a show rail icon in the bottom left of their screen to access Content Manager. Clicking on the icon will display the Content Manager rail and top bar functions. Hovering over the module icons will provide the module name in the users preferred selected language.
