What’s New in ownCloud 6 — Shared file notifications

Simple, clean and easy.

ownCloud secure cloud solution for filesharing

As many of you have probably seen, we just recently launched an Alpha of ownCloud 6 Community Edition. We didn’t include many specifics on the features, so I thought I’d delve a little bit into one feature today — with more to come.

Chances are if you are sharing a file with someone inside your ownCloud, you want them to know the folder or file is shared with them and it is time to start collaborating. Until now, shared files and folders simply appeared in the Shared directory, a rather inconspicuous notification and one easy to overlook. At the same time, we also know that not everyone wants an email every time about what files and folders are shared with them, they just want them to work.

With ownCloud 6 we have solved this – by adding the email notification option to the Share dialog. When a file or folder is shared with a user or group, the owner sharing the files selects which user(s) and groups to send notification emails to. The groups and user(s) then receive an email with the relevant share information, and they know the file has been shared with them. Simple, clean and easy.

Welcome to ownCloud 6 — more feature delving to come. Feel free to request a feature you want to know more about!

Integrate ownCloud & Microsoft 365 to protect sensitive data

Whether it’s files containing personal data (GDPR), intellectual property or sensitive corporate data from HR, finance or M&A, companies and organizations strive for seamless and easy-to-use digital collaboration even in those areas – both internally and externally. However, the special level of protection of certain data prohibits their processing in the public cloud. ownCloud can now be seamlessly integrated into Microsoft 365 as a « safehouse » for particularly sensitive data, keeping them out of the Azure Cloud.
