I spent some time trying to see if this feature was available in the core, or through plugins, and if this had been already discussed… Apparently not, so here is a request for something we would like to do :
- We share some folders to e-mails (custom share link for people who don’t have an account on our nextcloud instance)
- We set them to “file-drop” (upload only)
- Since there is apparently no way for the uploader to see the list of files already uploaded on the folder (except temporarily his own uploads - but some users miss it, and anyway it disappears after each page refresh), we keep getting e-mails/calls asking us to check if the file has been properly sent, extremely tedious as we do this for a large number of people
- So our suggestion would be to either allow read-only access+upload share permissions (ie. full access except possibility to edit / remove existing files) OR allow sending automated emails to the share link recipient after each upload
The first solution would probably be best (and I believe that’s how Dropbox works)… Anyone had the same issue in the past, and if yes any (other) suggestion ?
Thanks in advance !
