Which missing apps and features do you want in Nextcloud?

The demand is 100% there. I asked the NC engineers about Sorts at the conference and what I was told is it is extremely awesome, but would have benefited from input from the team in order to be developed with even deeper integration to the Files app. As is, needs a full rewrite afaik.

Also, sounds like it would have been top app at the conference if it had been submitted.

Simple forum-style discussion board for internal users

Dear programmers, can you add this:

  1. dahua surveillance camera control and view… make it look like android app. Control cameras or have a camera wall.
  2. Make files view adjustable just like in windows explorer. Make adjustable columns, view types, sort by, group by.
  3. add tree explorer on the left - like windows explorer
  4. Make files selectable by click & drag.
  5. currently clicking file between icon and name will bring up properties… seems there is some area inbetween that has different function
  6. Allow users to modify how files are shown, such as size, margins, gap…
  7. Drag & drop application icons to sort them
  8. Add functional right click on anything, even empty area in files to modify view or change options
  9. Allow side panel to minimize in multiple levels: just show arrow to expand, autoexpand on hover over, show icons, show icons with text.
  10. update database once user is added. This is to prevent calculating of contents for all folders when user first joins. Right now nextcloud will work really slow for the user until all contents are read.

A post was merged into an existing topic: Recurring tasks is it possible?

A post was merged into an existing topic: Calendar recurring events

Nextcloud should have a setting in Calendar to display ISO 8601 date/time standard presentation.

It’s hard to believe Calendar was created without this setting.

Maybe @tcit can help you because of his comment in this issue

A post was split to a new topic: Thoughts on Nextcloud recovery, mirroring and forum performance

“Move to Folder” functionality ala Google Drive.
Change where something is stored on the filesystem without leaving the current application view.
Makes it easy to keep whatever item you are accessing organized in a location you prefer.

On the Calendar have a Long List option.

Scenario: We’re trialing using a shared calendar to plan events for a youth group, so we’re looking approx 6 months ahead and sometimes get save-the-date info for district and county events upto a year ahead.

The List option just shows the events for the current month, they’d love to see the full list of what’s being thought about all on one page.

Being able to scroll back into the past would be useful too, so maybe a list with a from: to: range selection would give more flexibility. Some of the kids activities are takes a few sessions for them to complete during a term so being able to see what was on the calendar in the last few months before as well can be useful.

One great missing app is NextCloud Sites!

Something like Google sites but I’m sure it’ll be much better. The simplicity and ease of use of Google sites is nice but it lacs some essential and new feature for quite some time.

On the other hand, with NextCloud you have user control and would make such site perfect for intranet and document and announcements place for you company.
Integration with files and flows will be even greater. And hosting would already be present so you would use a subdomain.

This was excactly what the picoCMS app added. You can have something close to this with collectives, however I agree, fully, that it is not enough. If only the developers of the PicoCMS app was active. :frowning:

Nextcloud Calendar should have a “planning view” as Outlook has. This is basically the view that you currently have wenn having added participants and are looking for free/busy times.

I miss the feature to share single calendar itemswith several calendars/users.

I have cases where I have webcals with some dates I wish to share among our family. The updates that arrive on the webcal should also update the calendar item of all shares.

I miss a template creator for print and a basic template creator for Online Office.

What should it contain:

  • Favorite paper sizes and Border (e.g. A4, letter and 16:9 Screensize)
  • Standard font
  • Sizes for Standard, H1-H3
  • Numbering bullet and Tab
  • Header and Footer and there the location of logo, contact information and Site numbering.

Wherever I do a Print from Browser The Nextcloud Content is prepared along this. May add a Printer Icon that create a PDF for downloading.

If no template is chosen Online Office used these settings for new documents.

There are tools for work time in Nextcloud. May they could be enhanced.

Currently, a Friend of min is working as a Head of a Team in a corner shop. He use pen and paper to place his people into shifts. It’s getting harder and harder because his people mostly only work part-times and has to be sure that the shop permanently has enough employee and also a certified person for their apprentice ( Vocational education) on times the apprentice is not at school.

So he needs a tool that auto generate shift scheduling at least three months into the future.
That allows to see problems far enough.
Idea is.

  1. this Software auto generate shifts
    • based on skills of the employee, (e.g. allowed to advise an apprentice)
    • based on vacation and part time rules of the employees
      • contains max hours per week
      • contains max hours per month.
    • calculate one jumper position per day.
  2. employee with an account could switch their shifts
  3. calculates their work time per month.

Currently, he struggles again like every year with the intense xmas time.

I would suggest support for Caldav subscription - that is add a CalDav based calendar into my feed.

If there were good management of multiple calendars that would go some way, but once you’re matching skills and contracted hours, you’re really getting towards full-blown ERP.
