is it possible when i click on settings > users and when i create a user by sending them an email, instead of having it to create there home directory, is it possible for them to not get a home directory and get added straight away to a shared folder
i know you can do this via clicking on sharing on the folder and sharing it with the person you just created but can i not do this via the settings > users page?
ownCloud has a functionality for this called “guests”. https://marketplace.owncloud.com/apps/guests
The developers here have tried to make it run on NC but failed: https://github.com/nextcloud/guests and after that copy action ownCloud has relicenced newest additions to GPLv2 https://github.com/owncloud/guests so you can try it yourself but will not be able to distribute the results through the app store …
as NC cant do this can i maybe make the user home directory only show the shared folders they have been added to?
also in there home directory can i make them not be able to add a folder or files and just add stuff to the shared folder they have been added to
You can put them on quota 0 … there was a bug but I think its now working in the newest version again.
is it ok to download the copy from the github or is that not finished and still a work in progress?
does this allow guests to upload a file to the shared folder?
