Tips: did you know these?

Set expiration date on user or group shares

This feature will allow you to set an expiration date on shares to another user of your instance or to a group even when you are using Nextcloud on your mobile or on the go. Just share a file, click the three dot menu next to the share and set an expiration date to it. The users you shared that file with, will be able to open it only before the expiration date. After that the file won’t be available to them.

Note that this feature is available if your server is running Nextcloud 18 or newer.

Disable rich workspaces

Are you not a fan of Rich workspaces and you need a simplified view when using your Nextcloud Android client?

Now you will have the option to disable Rich workspaces from appearing when you’re using Nextcloud on your Android. If you disable that option on your mobile client, even when Rich workspaces are enabled on the server you will not see them on your mobile app! Note that the setting by default is enabled.

Are you 🆕 to Nextcloud?

Here’s a quick must know for you!

  • Nextcloud is a private file sync & share and communication server. It is fully open-source and you can host it yourself or pay a company to do it for you. That way, you are in control of your photos, your calendar and contact data, your documents and everything else.
  • Nextcloud is self-hosted – you can install it on your own server and use it for private or business purposes. If you need the best business platform for secure filesharing, collaboration and communication check out here.
  • Nextcloud is server software that also has available mobile apps. This is our release announcement for Nextcloud 3.16 for Android. The Nextcloud Android app allows you to access all your files on your Nextcloud. There’s a Nextcloud mobile app for iOS as well. You can use any of them, and access your data anywhere, whenever, if you have a Nextcloud installation running on your server – which is very simple to set up!
