 +====== Nextcloud cloud services ​ ======
 +
 +Storage, calendar, notes, tasks, contacts, and collaborative document edition services. ​
 +
 +Each user is allowed **an initial 50GB of storage**, that can be expanded if requested through the  [[https://​citius.usc.es/​dashboard/​enviar-incidencia| requests and problem reporting form]].
 +
 +Users can ask for the creation of groups with independent storage, also through [[https://​citius.usc.es/​dashboard/​enviar-incidencia| requests and problem reporting form]].
 +
 +===== Access =====
 +
 +All users with a standard account have access through https://​nextcloud.citius.usc.es/​ with their CITIUS account or by uing compatible synchronization clients or file explorers.
 +
 +Users with limited accounts can request access trough their CITIUS person in charge.
 +
 +===== Storage service =====
 +
 +==== Synchronization clients ​ ====
 +
 +There are synchronization clients available for **Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS and Windows Phone**. They can be [[https://​nextcloud.com/​install/#​install-clients| downloaded from the official web]]. ​
 +
 +The path to the Nextcloud server is ''​nextcloud.citius.usc.es''​ and the credentials needed are the CITIUS ones.
 +
 +The CITIUS **Ubuntu 16.04** has automatic integration with a wizard to configure the client and synchronization with the local filesystem. There is also a direct link in the file explorer to access files on the server (without previous download) using WebDAV. ​
 +
 +For other **GNU/​Linux** distros check [[https://​nextcloud.com/​install/#​install-clients|the official website]]
 +
 +====  WebDAV direct access ​ ====
 +
 + ​**GNU/​Linux** file explorers like Nautilus have integrated support for this protocol. You can try the path ''​davs:<​nowiki>//</​nowiki>​nextcloud.citius.usc.es/​remote.php/​webdav/''​ (if it doesn'​t work try switching ''​davs:''​ with ''​webdav:''​).
 +
 +**Windows 10** can connect as a remote drive using the path ''​https://​nextcloud.citius.usc.es/​remote.php/​webdav/''​. Be aware that the Windows WebDAV client is known to be buggy (for example the username cannot have any special character or the connection will fail). Therefor it is recommended to use some third-party client like [[https://​cyberduck.io/​|Cyberduck]].
 +
 +There is more information available in [[https://​docs.nextcloud.com/​server/​12/​user_manual/​files/​access_webdav.html| the official documentation ]].
 +
 +===== Calendar and contacts =====
 +There is no official free client to synchronize calendars and contacts. Calendars are accesible using CalDAV and CardDAV.
 +
 +===== Collaborative document edition =====
 +Nextcloud has its own editor [[https://​www.collaboraoffice.com/​es/​collabora-online-development-edition-code/​|Collabora Online Developer Edition]], which allows for the collaborative edition of all the types of documents supported by LibreOffice.
 +
 +Documents can be shared using the NextCloud interface and can be edited by several users at the same time, just as it can be done in Google Docs. Also new documents can be created from the web interface.
 +
 +===== Backups =====
 +Every day a backup of all user data is made. To access the backups you must get in touch with the CITIUS admins.
