What files, tasks and chat sessions belong to a specific customer project? Nextcloud 16 introduces a feature that helps you and your team relate information across Nextcloud applications: Projects, which allow users to link different types of information together and quickly find related data.
As this release brings so many improvements, we’ve written 4 other blogs with more details about the main features:
Users can add files, chats and other items to projects. The various apps will present these items in a list, allowing users to immediately jump to them. Projects are Nextcloud wide, that is, when a user shares files that are part of a project, the other user can see the project with the shared files. A click on any of the items in a project leads right to it, be it a chat, a file or a task.
Showing items connected to a project in Files.
Project Starfish in Talk.
Decks can be connected to projects as well.
When a user has added files to the project which are not shared, the other users won’t see those. This means that you can add files, tasks, calendars, emails and more to a shared project but keep them to yourself, sharing is not automatic! You can have a chat with only one other team member, connect it to the project, and only when you invite the rest of the team will they see the chat appear in their project content list.
Currently, Projects are supported in Talk, Deck and Files. Other apps are expected to add support over the coming months.

As part of Schleswig-Holstein's state digitization strategy, the state chancellery has announced they will work with Nextcloud to develop AI for working with government documents. This comes just after we announced the first private AI assistant last weekend with Hub 6. The German state already uses Nextcloud and their AI strategy aligns with our work on ethical, local AI technologies.
Over the last year, AI has become a popular topic. Some is hype, some is substance. Some is good, some is bad. We want to give you the good, not the bad, and ignore the hype! AI has a ton of opportunity – but also risk. So we put you in control – off by […]
The serious security flaws in ownCloud (now owned by Kiteworks) do NOT affect Nextcloud. We have strict security processes in place, and do not ship test data from libraries that can cause security breaches.
Minor Nextcloud updates are released, as well as an update to the desktop client.
As always, minor releases include stability and security improvements that are designed to be a safe and quick upgrade.
