Did you know a third of people who abandon a survey form do so because they worry about privacy and security? We understand, pretty much all those forms are hosted at Google or other, data-vacuuming services. Well, we have good news to you surveyors! We just made Nextcloud Forms available for installation. With Nextcloud Forms, you can create as many forms, with as many questions, and shared with as many people as you like – without any limitations. You keep your form and the data you collect on Nextcloud. And you can easily analyze and share the results with our pretty and insightful graphs.
Forms and surveys
Similar to Google Forms, this app makes it easy to create surveys for anything from market research or customer feedback to planning an office party. And with Nextcloud Forms, data remains secure on the Nextcloud server and the privacy of respondents is respected.
The Forms app lets you choose from a range of question types such as checkboxes, multiple choice, dropdowns, short answer and long text. That should cover most use cases, but we are already working on more question types!
You can share Forms via link to anyone, or even directly to specific users on your Nextcloud server or to the whole Nextcloud instance. For improved security it is possible to set an expiration date. There is no limitation on the amount of forms or questions you can create nor the links you can share or the number of people who can reply. Also important: Forms is responsive and will look good on any device or screen!
Responses are visualized either as summary statistics with charts which make it easy to analyze the results. You can also see the individual responses if you need to dig deeper or have a small number of respondents. The export format is compatible with the format used by Google Forms to work with any tool or workflow designed for integration with that.
You can now add the Forms 2.0 app to Nextcloud with just one click and get surveying!
We ourselves have already used the Forms app for user surveys and application forms and we believe there is a bright future ahead. Let us know what you think and get involved to make Forms even better!
Today, US-based file sync & share vendor Kiteworks announced their acquisition of ownCloud and Dracoon. Kiteworks points out that their customers now have access to their file-sharing application.

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.
