Home Documents folder

Could anybody help with a newcomer problem. I have moved from NC client on Linux MX coming round Windows.

In Windows what I did was install the nc client then synch the edit the location of my windows documents folder to point to the nc documents folder so any saves were where each app natively saves and also synced to all my other devices.

In linux I tried to modify and move the home documents folder but it just moves the whole documents folder into the nc documents/documents.

Is there a way to simply point the Linux documents folder to nc
