First, congrats to the NextCloud team for developing the Dashboard. Many populations of NC users will find this adds value.
But not all users - and I agree with what Schuldi says above the Dashboard.
We have just upgraded from v18 to v20, and so our users are now getting the Dashboard when they first log in. Right now we are only using the “Files” functionality, and so the additional items on the Dashboard are, for most users, just noise.
What we would prefer is:-
- have a Global setting which gave the default “first app” which loads on first login - which could then be set to “Files”, “Calendar” or “Dashboard”.
- and an Individual setting for users who could then choose to stay on the system default, or change to some other value.
For time being we are using the Dashboard “Limit to Groups” setting, and setting the list of Groups to a single test group. And allowing individual groups to opt in if it suits them.
