Would like to get rid of the hassle of downloading and re-uploading documents from and to Nextcloud? You can try and install a Nextcloud client on your computer so that you can work on the files locally and the file gets synced with Nexcloud automatically.
A “client” is an app that you install on your computer. It will allow you to edit documents locally on your own machine. Changes will be saved automatically on the nextcloud server. These are changes going bottom up. From local machine to up to cloud server.
Track changes happen also top down. Changes that happen on the server, for example, a colleague makes changes to a document will also be synchroniced automatically in your local machine.
Download for desktop
Installation on Mac OS X and Windows is the same as for any software application: download the program and then double-click it to launch the installation, and then follow the installation wizard.
Note that when you install the app it will allow you to download files from the Reef nextcloud server. you can choose to download all the files in The Reef nexcloud server.
if you dont have a lot of space in your computer it’s better that you choose a folder you would like to work on more often. for ex: choose the folder of the working group your are involved in
you will also need to choose where in your local machine you will want to download and store those files
