uKnowva Extensions

As the name suggests "Extensions" are to extend the already available functionality of uKnowva application. Vanilla uKnowva installation comes with default features like social intranet, document management, etc. But say you want a project Management App or some completely new functionality like tracking user sessions, etc, then you can do this by adding more extensions to uKnowva.

You can extend uKnowva in three ways:

  1. From the Extension store: Refer this link: https://docs.uknowva.com/extending-uknowva/install-from-extension-store
