New version of Groupfolders App is coming

Currently versioning is not working for Group folders, is there a plan to implement this?

There is no control on deletion, any user can delete files or folders in a group drive, can somebody provide insight how to restrict this? Deleted files or folders appear in “Deleted Files” of that user but not for others, we need to have option if someone in a team deletes it, others should able to restore it. Please help to address this scenario. In our organization, we are mainly depending on group folders.

I create a Group Folder with write/share access permission to USER1 and USER2.
USER1 upload files or folders inside it. If it share file/folder with public link, why USER2 not see that share?
User2 sees the file as if it was not shared. Is there a reason?

The user who creates a share on groupfolders, should have the option to share in Personal or Group permissions. Or directly with Group permission, but not only Personal, else others Users of that group not see share link.


I have the same problem. Was the ever resolved?

Please add your voice to the GitHub issue above :slight_smile:

I’ve noticed that in 12.0.2 that groupfolder roots are named in the /nextcloud/filespath/__groupfolders/x/ where ‘x’ is an autoincemented integer? So the creator of a group root is really just giving that root folder an alias name and the code gives it an integer so that avoids the overwrite issue stated by the OP?

Revisions seem to be working in 12.0.2.

Information that is outdated creates so much confusion and frustration. That’s why I continue to advocate for a version sensitive wiki with the most up to date information being at the top.

Very cool app. But it doesn’t support collaborative tags, useful for setting a file retention in this folder.
Is there any plans to support it?


Work on this app is happening, though it is low priority as we have lots of customers whom we work for :wink:

If you want to increase the urgency, become a customer.

Same here. In backgroud, I found the file was already uploaded successfully on the filesystem, Meanwhile, An error message “Internal Server Error” just showed up in the front page. Wasn’t that weird?
