Hey guys sorry to here about Owncloud, but also in terms of self interest the reboot of a more community led offering sounds wonderful, to me at least.
Best wishes Nextcloud and after a couple of hours research looks really strong.
Anyway as I say I have only been on here a couple of hours and next port of call is to delete the owncloud bitnami stack and get NextCloud operational.
I have sort of been going round in circles for a platform that is Cloud based CRM / DMS and its really frustrating as for some reason all the software available seems to be aimed at specific niches and full of feature bloat.
I have installed Casebox which I really like but seems to be devoid of a community, SuiteCRM which I am still evaluating but maybe is to commercial focussed and CiviCRM which I just feel suffers from bloat.
I just want to simply connect contacts to documents and I am not even bothered about editing and creation online, but viewers and full text search are really important.
When I say simple things all I am talking about is metadata data where a contact can be added to a document so that in the contact view I can view there documents.
Even better would be to allow folder metatdata that is more than just comments and sharing.
Also that a contact can be a user and this will limit there scope of access.
So with me being a total Nextcloud noob I thought I would bring up a thread on really simple additions to existing apps and how those apps can be more interactive with each other.
I am presuming much of what I will say is either already implemented or has similar support in the community, but maybe others have some ideas on really simple, additions to nextcloud that actually provide huge functional gains with minimal work.
I always thought this with owncloud as it always had the apps but for some reason the seemed extremely isolated from each other.
Anyway as I say I am off to uninstall the bitnami Owncloud stack and run up NextCloud and I will be posting my noob opinions here if anybody is interested and would like to comment.
