We have been using a Google calender for events, Google spreadsheets for booking for Wortley Hall in 2017, people keep creating documents on Google Docs rather than our wiki… so perhaps we should face up to the fact that if we want to practice what we preach we need our own office application server?
A Nextcloud server at
office.coops.tech could provide:
- WebDAV access to a shared filesystem for CoTech members for private document storage and editing
- Browser based WYSIWYG word processing and spreadsheet editing
- Shared address books
- Shared calender
- Other cool stuff…
Spinning up a VPS and installing Nexcloud wouldn’t take very long since we have Ansible playbooks for this — would anyone be interested in testing the suitability of this idea if I set it up?
