Dear EGroupware users,
We’re approaching the release of EGroupware Version 17.1. Therefore, we’re happy to announce, that “Collabora Online” will be available within EGroupware starting with Version 17.1.
Furthermore, we announce a partnership with Collabora Productivity, the driving force behind putting LibreOffice in the Cloud. This partnership enables the integration of Collabora Online, the cloud version of LibreOffice into the online groupware EGroupware – your digital office.
The new integration allows EGroupware users to open and edit various office documents, such as text documents, spreadsheets or presentations within EGroupware. Specifically the option to edit different file formats together in real-time will exceed the existing functionalities by far.
The Collabora Online integration will be available for cloud packages as well as for on premise installations.
On Thursday, 05th of October, we’ll offer a free webinar about Collabora Online Office in EGroupware.
The webinar will mainly take place in German, but we’ll be happy to translate and answer in English. Please don’t hesitate to participate and ask any kind of questions – also in English.
