1.Collabora Online Office 3.1 is now available

Collabora Online is a powerful LibreOffice-based online office suite that lets you edit documents from your web browser. It is compatible with all major document, spreadsheet and presentation file formats and can be easily integrated into your infrastructure.

The integration of Collabora has made working with EGroupware much easier for many applications. We will be happy to advise you on the further possibilities of the use of collabora online office on our next Webinar. For more information on integrating Collabora Online 3.1 into your own data center, please visit our Collabora page.

The new Version 3.1 includes many bug fixes and improved chart editing.

2. Collabora trial phase is completed

The free trial phase ended on February 28th with a lot of positive feedback.

For all users of the EGrouware cloud in the EGroupware datacenter, the same number of “Collabora Named User” licenses that our customers purchased as “EGroupware EPL Concurrent User” is included. This means that not all users need an additional license. This is a big advantage for many customers. Just contact us if you have any further questions about the licenses or visit the new Collabora page.

The price for a Collabora user license is 4.25 Euro plus VAT per year for schools and non-profit organizations. A commercial license for companies costs 17 Euro per user/year plus VAT and is therefore much lower than a Microsoft Office license, which costs about 200 Euro. More information about Collabora and prices can be found on our Collabora page.

Users of the EGroupware Community Version can also use Collabora Online 3.1. Just contact us for more information.

3. Collabora Webinar with Quick Start Information

What is the easiest way to start Collabora Online and what are the options for EGroupware users?

We are pleased to invite you to a webinar on this subject. In this webinar we will discuss the first steps from commissioning to saving documents. We will also discuss how you can create a PDF form from your document. Birgit Becker will answer the most frequently asked questions from the support area and give many useful tips. Look forward to an exciting webinar.

Very soon we will send an intivation for the online training. In order to better plan the webinar, we would like to know what time (morning or afternoon refering to the german timezome) would be most convienent for you.
