Collabora Online is a powerful LibreOffice-based online office suite, that enables users to access documents online, author new content and work collaboratively.

     Online Connector only for OpenDocument files?

     by guzi on: Nov 28 2016
    Score 50%

    Unfortunately Collabora Office damages some "rich formated" Excel files.
    Is there a way to restrict the app only for OpenDocument file types?
    Or a feature request : add a button for "edit online" and download it as the default action like it is handled without the Collabora Online connector

    First of all, thnx for this nice app!

    Small feature request; is it be possible to do an extension of the app and make it possible to start a new document / spreadsheet / presentation by the "Add button" in OwnCloud instead of starting the Office App? (Such as creating a new Text file)

    Are you using OC 8 ? In OC 9, such a feature already exists, please update if you haven't.

    Hi Pranav,

    You're right, in OC 8.2 the menu options aren't available, but in OC 9.0 and newer they are there.

    Thnx for your reply.

    Kind regards,
