A big surprise we introduced with Nextcloud Hub was the included ONLYOFFICE office suite. ONLYOFFICE integration in Nextcloud empowers users to collaborate on office documents with their team members in real-time. Compatibility with Microsoft Office formats means perfect documents, every time.
ONLYOFFICE comes with:
Organize and manage your data online in XLSX, ODS and CSV files with over 400 formulas and create colorful visualizations.
Express ideas in beautiful presentations stored in PPTX and ODP or exported to PDF full of charts, shapes, and images.
Open, edit and collaborate on Word, ODT, PDF or HTML documents in real-time with powerful formatting and layout capabilities.
Compared to the (still available) ONLYOFFICE and Collabora Online office integrations, the new Community Document Server gets installed on fresh Nextcloud Hub installations by default and does not require Docker containers and complicated reverse-proxy configurations in the web server! Of course, existing Nextcloud users who upgrade from Nextcloud 17 can also benefit from this.
Getting a fully working ONLYOFFICE in Nextcloud now just requires two steps:
1. Install the Community Document Server App. Use the search keywords ‘document’ or ‘community’ in the app installation screen in Nextcloud. For installation from the command line, use:
occ app:install documentserver_community (Please note: installation will take a while as the app is big).
2. Next, install the OnlyOffice App Use the search keywords ‘onlyoffice’ in the app installation screen in Nextcloud. For installation from the command line, use:
occ app:install onlyoffice (There is no need to configure anything!).
3. Get to work!
The Community Document Server is aimed at home use. Just like traditionally installed Document Server, it can be upgraded to ONLYOFFICE Integration Edition, a scalable enterprise solution with professional tech assistance.
If you have problems with the Community Document Server, have a look at the Nextcloud community support forum.
