I am running Nextcloud 20 and some of my Users disklike the Dashboard, while others like it.
I’d like to offer my Users to enable or disable the Dashboard for themselves. Is there an Option I haven’t found yet?
I don’t want to uninstall Dashboard and I don’t want to change the default app for the whole server.
The Problem is not the App Order or the Icon.
Some Users want the Dashboard as default app, whilst some others don’t want the app as default, but want to use it from time to time, and the third group doesn’t want the app at all…
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.
