Renaming

Because of matters relating to licensing, we have decided to rename our Nextcloud line of products Storage Share.

In addition, we have also changed the standard theme for the Storage Share instances, and we will assign a new domain nx*.your-storageshare.de for each instance. The prefix of the domain will not change.

WARNING: We will deactivate customers' old domains on 20 September 2019. Customers need to make sure that they change their domains beforehand.

Connection

You can use any browser to connect to your Storage Share. After going to the link, you will need to enter your username and password.

Overview

Storage share overview.jpg The Storage Share icon (top left) will take you back to the default file overview.
The app selection (to the right of the Storage Share icon) shows you which apps you have installed. The icons appear here after you install the apps. In the screenshot above, for example, you see a lightning icon for the Activities app and a photo icon for the Gallery app. You can choose which apps to install for your Storage Share; adding more apps lets you do more with your Storage Share. For example, you could install the Calendar app and sync the calendar with the one on your smartphone, or you could add the Mail app (an email client) so you can check your emails.
The search function (top right) will search for a keyword that you enter. This works for which ever app you're currently using.
The notification icon (next to the search icon) will inform you about new updates and other notifications.
The contact menu (next to the notification icon) lists all existing users and contact people for your Storage Share.
The profile image (upper right corner) opens a dropdown menu with settings, apps, users and the logout.

Default app (file browser)

The information field on the left contains filter and functions associated with the selected app.
The largest window in the Storage Share interface is the application field. It displays the content and user functions of the selected app.
The navigation bar is located on the left above the application field. It shows the current path and makes it easier to go back from the current folder.
The '+' button next to the navigation bar can be used to create folders and text documents or to upload files. Most web browsers also support 'drag and drop' uploads.
The overflow menu includes options for favorizing, copying, deleting, and downloading files as well as an overview for viewing files. You can access this menu by clicking on the three dots on the right-hand side.
