Collaborative Editing: What’s that?

Getting collaborative editing to work is really easy. Start editing documents with your colleagues or partners in real-time!

  • Write to-do-lists or customer informations together.
  • Write with your colleagues, fellow students or friends, all working on the same document at the same time.
  • No more sending your documents back and forth via email.

Prices and how it works

Collabora license is based on named users as long as you are not using the CODE version. After the end of the collabora test phase using our collaboar-Server the following regulation applies:

  • EGroupware users need Collabora licenses for all users who want to use the new solution.
  • The costs for using our Collabora server for hosting customers are the pure license costs, which we pass on to Collabora.
    For on-premisis installations (CE or EPL) using our (and no own) Collabora server, higher costs for operation will be charged.

We offer two different concepts for the operation of a Collabora Office Server.  If you want to run your own Collabora server, it is sufficient to purchase a Collabora software license. You will have to pay for the installation and the server operating costs yourself. Alternatively, we offer a Collabora server in the EGroupware Cloud. You can connect your existing EGroupware EPL or CE with our Collabora Server in the EGroupware Cloud.

If you are already a customer of EGroupware Hosting and need Collabora licenses, you can either buy them in our shop or contact us. We will find the right solution for you.

Price per license for Collabora Server (EGroupware on-premise installation EPL or CE, EGroupware hosting customers):

  • 17,00 Euro/year/user plus VAT for Business users
  • 4,25 Euro/year/user plus VAT for NGO, schools, non-profit organisations

 

Price for Collabora license in the Collabora Cloud for users of an EGroupware on-premise installation:

  • 4,95 Euro/month/user plus VAT for Business users
  • 2,95 Euro/month/user plus VAT for non-profit

Collabora for On-Premises Installations

For EPL customers there is now a Collabora package available to be installed on your own server. The packages are only available for the following two distributions and webservers. They can be installed like other EGroupware packages:

  • Ubuntu 16.04 with nginx or Apache: apt install egroupware-collabora-key
  • CentOS 7 with Apache: yum install egroupware-collabora-key
  • Or use our new Ubuntu 16.04 nginx appliance with preinstalled Collabora

It will install two containers “collabora-key” and “collabora-watchtower”. The watchtower will check for updates at 4:00 am daily and install them, if a new Collabora version is available.

After the installation you need to change the Collabora server to use the same URL as your EGroupware (under Admin >> Applications Collabora: Server without a path and trailing slash e.g. https://domain.com)!
After applying the changes, it will show the amount of supported document types. For a secure connection via https, Collabora requires official certificates either created with LetsEncrypt or bought from an official certification centre. It will not work with self signed certificates. Additionally, the configuration requires that EGroupware internally and externally uses the same URLs to not run into configuration problems.

You can copy your licence code directly into EGroupware.
