Viewing Users and Groups


#1

Good afternoon, all.
We’ve been using Nextcloud 13.0.5 at my office for about six months as a pilot. As people are using it more, some questions have come up on the UI, particularly around sharing. It doesn’t appear it’s possible for a normal user to view a list of users and/or groups, which means when people want to share to a group, they have to guess what it might be named, and then put it into the box to see if it comes up with anything. Users can click contacts in the upper right, which does show users, but then clicking “all contacts” takes them to an empty contacts area. Shouldn’t this be auto-populated from the users and groups that exist?

Additionally, we’ve run into a case where a user who’s shared on a folder they don’t own can rename that folder locally for them, but it doesn’t actually rename it. This can create a strange situation where the same folder has different names for different users.
Any advice on these?
Thanks.

I think that the logic behind this is that if someone shares a folder with you, you can move it in the position you want in your foldertree and rename it with a more meaningful name for you because you are supposed to use that folder; so it has to have a name you remember. Consider also that you could have one of your folders with the same name,…
