Understanding Akumina Tray Functions

The Akumina Tray enables authorized users to access functions for Akumina Framework and Experience Builder,  and includes tool tips for each of the tray buttons. Each function can be individually permissioned by SharePoint Security Groups. This allows the site administrator to control which SharePoint Security Groups will have access to each function.  SharePoint Security Groups assigned will have access to the functions throughout the entire site.

The Akumina default install includes an Akumina Tray and two additional trays for the Experience Builder Page Editor Component; a bottom tray and a right tray.

A description of the tray buttons and functionality for Akumina Tray and Experience Builder Page Editor trays are described below in detail.
