My intention is to create group of contacts and so be able to send out an info mail to a group of contacts.
In the contcats app, I can create a group, but I am not able to add any contcats to it. A search dialog opens, but what ever I enter there, nothing is found and adden to the group.
Is there some trick to add contcats?
BTW, any CLI commands can not be used here as we do not have access to the linux, only to the GUI.
Currently, it’s only possible to add your contacts. That’s a contact created via the “New contact” button.
To group contacts But it’s currently not possible to use contacts from the system address book because they do not belong to you.
I understand that sounds a bit weird. The technical background is that the group membership is stored as a property in the vcard file. Contacts from the system address book are read only and therefor you cannot assign a group.
I added some ‘new contacts’ and they did land in the group really.
Now when I go to the group and select ‘send email’, my defaoult mail client opens a new message, but the address is empty. The same does happen with when bcc is selected, no addresses are included.
So what are contacts groups for?
To send a mail to a user group is not possible because it is not possible to create a user group at all.
We are jsut small groups of users and aim is to pass some links and few other things from Nextcloud to all memebers.
Is this something what Nexcloud is definitely not able to fulfill?
Yes, I have email in all contacts. Still not possible to send mail to a contact group.
I entered manually new contacts, just to include them in a contact group.
But such contact group seem to have no function.
Therefore my question why would someone create a group of contacts when it is not possible to use it for something. Just to make group so the group is created can not be the aim. Such group must have some use, otherwise it is just doing something for entertainment.
And indeed, unlikely the problem with the user groups, contact groups can be created, but it can be filled only with new separately created contacts. Then this group can be observed and deleted again as this is the only tasks I could use it for so far.
My aim is, create group to which I can send infos via mail.
This should go via the mail in the nextcloud.
Hi, in my case I amble tot add contacts to contact groups but only 31 of the 126 contacts showing up under “All contacts” , 125 of them are in imported in one map. I see the first 31 but number 32 and up are not showing at all, although the popup window extends with a lot of blank space.
