I am trying to move a group of users from Google Drive to NextCloud. We encountered a problem: A user wanted to share a document, and did what she is used to on Google Drive: Copy the item url from the browser address bar, and share that. On Drive, when a user gets a link like that and the file hasn’t been shared with them, they get an option to ask for access, and things can proceed. On NextCloud, as far as I could see, there’s no such option – a logged-in user will just be referred to the relevant app, as if they didn’t click a link to a specific file (at least, that’s how it seems in the notes app).
Is there a setting that makes NextCloud behave more like Google Drive in this sense?
Just to be clear – yes, I’m aware that the NextCloud model is more secure and, basically, more correct as a way to do things. But this is a volunteer group, I’m not in position to force them to change their habits, even if it’s for their own good; I need things to Just Work in order to convince them, and as it stands, things don’t.
