What kind of content can I create within AKO/DKO?
Creating content on AKO/DKO first requires you to understand the different types of content that can be created. There are four components to site creation on AKO/DKO: the group, page, forum, and the folder.
A group is simply a listing of AKO/DKO usernames, divided up in to “Users” and “Administrators” of the group.
A group’s main function is to tie in to pages folders with the purpose of keeping easily manageable lists for access control but they are not limited to that.
A page on AKO/DKO is a grouping of channels. Channels are simply boxes that help you create the specific content on the page. See the AKO/DKO Channel Guide for details on each type of channel: https://www.us.army.mil/suite/doc/7604422
A folder is simply an area within AKO/DKO that can store files. These files can be shared between other AKO/DKO users.
Forums can be used for a persistent communication area between all users of a site.
Users can create individual components for independent usage, but when you use all of the components together you have what AKO/DKO calls a ‘Site’. A site is a powerful tool for collaboration and communication between AKO/DKO users.
