Can not see file from group folders in the menu recent on the left side

Support intro

If I upload new files to a group folder, I can’t see this files in the menu “recent” on the left.

How can I change this?

Is it possible to hide the menu “recent”?

Good morning mate, hope you are doing well…

Can you please describe your issue better?

You mean that you have to reload the page to the file appears? Or even if you refresh the page it does not appear?

All the best.

Hello Beltran,
you see this files (group folder) in “recent” never.
You see the files from the home storage of the user only.
It looks like group folders does not trigger the recent page.
Former nextcloud versions has the same problem.

Hey there, one thing.

When you say “Group Folders” you mean “Shared Folders” or actually the “Group Folders” from the app?


I mean the group folder from the app

Okay, can you please tell me the difference between creating a folder (as admin user) with the name of the Group and then share it the group?

Isn’t this the same thing as doing from the app?

Did you tried that before?

Sharing files direct (without goup folder app) works - but it is no solution an no workaround.

Using the group folder app have many advantages for my use cases, but this is not the topic.

The problem is, if I upload a new file to a goup folder it will not displayed in “recent” files…
