Nextcloud Hub 22, the new version of the comprehensive business productivity solution designed to offer an open-source alternative to Google and Microsoft services, has been released with significant improvements and new features that users are sure to appreciate.
Nextcloud Hub 22
For those who are confused, Nextcloud Hub is the same as Nextcloud but repackaged, expanded, and simplified to meet the productivity needs of any business. It offers file storage and synchronization, communications and office tools, and real-time collaboration.
The tools it provides are Nextcloud Files, Nextcloud Talk, and Nextcloud Groupware, in addition to those traditionally offered by Nextcloud.
Turning to Nextcloud Hub 22, which is ultimately the focus of this post, the first thing Nextcloud officials have highlighted is the Circles feature. Integrated into Contacts, these are user-defined groups that facilitate the administration of teams. You can share files, assign tasks to circles or create chat rooms for a process.
The second thing that stands out about Nextcloud Hub 22 is the integrated management of chat and tasks, allowing a message via chat to become an assigned task.
Thirdly, an administrator can define a new approval flow in the configuration, while users can request approval via a document.
Nextcloud Hub 22 has brought integrated PDF signing with DocuSign, EIDEasy, and LibreSign to facilitate documents. On the other hand, Nextcloud’s integrated knowledge management makes stored knowledge available to everyone at any time, thus reducing search, sharing, and mobile access.
The collaborative software (groupware) level introduced a trash bin function in the calendar and improved the Nextcloud Mail process, email tagging, and support for sieve filtering.
Frank Karlitschek, CEO of Nextcloud, commented on the new version of the end-to-end productivity solution: “The last year has demanded an acceleration of digitalization in organizations.
Nextcloud has aligned its roadmap with the reality of new work in modern organizations, providing the necessary capabilities for the paperless office.
With streamlined workflows and more efficient self-management for teams, Nextcloud Hub 22 will further facilitate remote working and global collaboration for couples.”
The Nextcloud Hub 22 server and desktop client can be downloaded from the project’s official website, while the iOS and Android clients are available from the App Store and Play Store, respectively. We leave you with the official announcement and a video showing all the details of this release.
Another exciting thing we can do in our Nextcloud is to allow it to connect to external data. Well, what is this? It is to give the possibility to our users not only to access their data or other user’s data but to any share that we have inside or outside our network, being able to integrate our file server, FTP server, public Clouds, etc…
With this, Nextcloud users will access the data we are interested in, whether outside or inside the organization. Not only will they be able to access it, but they will also be able to keep the content synchronized whenever we are interested in working in real-time with this information.
And as we can see, we can integrate it with other external Nextcloud, add another local storage, or our file server with CIFS or SMB, as well as FTP or FTPS, WebDAV, Amazon S3, OpenStack, Dropbox, Google Drive…
