Pros
You are supporting a fabulous network and community of open source developers. Your data can be safe and it stays on hard-drives only you own.
And bonus points that I can tailor the branding with my company logo. Clients love it, I love it, and my colleagues are getting use to hearing me rave about it.
NC is Free and easy to use with my skillset. I just have lots of joy when it included a free mobile application that I can basically use personally and on the enterprise leve.
Cons
The thing I don't care for the most is the lack of documentation for the Freenas / Truenas integrations for when something goes wrong. Also the lack of 2fa out of the box is down side as well.
Search is poor in the sense that there is no integrated setup for this. Integration of Elasticsearch is described, but its way to complicated.
I lack the support of virtual files in the sync client. To my knowledge, there is no info on what the bottleneck in the system is.

The all-in-one platform for business applications

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

Its easy to use, stable and dependable, extremely customisable, and works across all mobile and desktop operating systems. Perhaps most importantly, through the built in app store, it serves as a platform for many other key business applications which we need, such as collaborative document editing, calendar and contact sync and share, internal knowledge base (wiki), and more.

Cons

It could be easier to get set up. The video conferencing features so far didn't work reliably on our installation.

Best collaborative software I've used personally and for business

Reviewed 5 months ago
Pros

First and foremost, I like the Transparency. I am relieved to know that my data is owned by MYSELF and my data doesn't travel across the advertisement companies to profit Tech Giants. Secondly, I love the UI elements of the software of how easy it is to get things done inside the applications, how few clicks it is to require to do such and such task, everything right on my face and all the useful...

Cons

While I like most of the things around Nextcloud. I hope it gets better with UI/UX. Sometimes the UI can be very non-friendly, glitches here and there and not very sleek experience. But, overall I'm happy with what I have.

Feature-rich Collaboration platform with great plug-in support

Reviewed 8 days ago
Pros

Large number of available apps to extend functionality, such as Kanban Boards, web-based editing of diagrams and flowcharts, the Notes app and authentication providers, among others.

Cons

File synchronization regularly slows down or completely halts because of some error that goes away after simply stopping and restarting the synchronization process.

Pure UX (user experience)

Reviewed 3 years ago

As mentioned in the last point above: 3. UI is poorly integrated with the OS. It is usable, but it can be better. Compare scrolling in browser and scrolling in a list there. You will see the difference. 4. android upload/share is not reliable. User experience in the android app leaves much to be desired. For example on fairly modern phone and on wifi connection, the UI hangs on every screen for some...

Pros

That it exists! And it is on the market for a while now. Free, and more importantly self-hosted, alternative to Dropbox. I know it is more than dropbox, but more on that later.

Cons

Initially it was a software to share files between different computers and possibly with other people. Managing files is nextcloud's core competence. And even after years using it, it is sad to see that it doesn't always work reliably! I can tell couple of examples from experiences. 1. constant conflicts. I use a diary software to keep notes and often get conflicts when doing notes. Luckily it is...

Secured cloud sharing for institutes

Reviewed 3 months ago

Overall simple tool for sharing files with security

Pros

Share your files with so much ease and securely within the organisation or with other organisations as well.

Cons

The GUI is very outdated. Needs an overhaul. The app is not so easy to use. It's complicated to save shared files on your cloud and computer. I can't understand the syncing of the cloud on my computer.
