RE: Editing/Viewing attachments (mainly Word and Excel) directly on server without the need to download locally

Dear,

 

The Alfresco solution is also a possibility. Alfresco is much more powerful the Nextcloud, but also much more complicated… And I like the Nextcloud Odoo module, because in Odoo, the basics remain completely as without. The attachments are present as usual in Odoo. You can use Nextcloud to work with the attachments and to create or kill new ones. You can use the attachment mechanism of Odoo as normally too. You can even choose with models have a Nextcloud map structure and with not ( for some smaller models with few static attachments, you may not need another mechanism ).  In the Alfresco module, there is an extra tab for the Alfresco connection.

But when you need the advanced Alfresco possibilities, of course Alfresco is a great solution.

 

With kind regards,

 

Van Hirtum Johan

Will have a look. While researching this I found many mentions of Alfresco 

implementing required subset of SharePoint services which I thought could be 

used as a base for something like this. 

 

Thank you. Best regards
