Hello all. I really like Nextcloud (for many reasons) and I thank the team for developing and supporting it. But there is nothing perfect in the world , so I would like to start discussion about group folders in the left menu.
Group folders are a good idea (even if they coul be - by my opinion - replaced with the “virtual” user that shares its folders with selected groups; but separation from users is definitely better ).
But I miss functionality similar to the standard folders (in case they are shared), e.g.
- to see group folders in the dedicates item in the left menu (called - suprisingly “Group folders”)
- to be able to move group folders everywhere I want in my NC space(while they still stay in the left menu).
Google and Microsoft employ many UX experts that spend thousands of hours with UI tweaking. I think Google drive has very good design. They have the concept I propose, so why don’t inspire there?
I am a former Java developer (and still remember something from Java), but I have no time to learn PHP. Otherwise I’d make these changes by myself.
