Collabora and/or OnlyOffice

Depending on your package (Starter or Medium+) we provide Nextcloud instances with one of the two most used online office collaboration suites: Collabora Office and OnlyOffice. Below is an introduction for each one of the suites.


Collabora Office

Collabora Online is an open source online office suite developed by Collabora Productivity, a division of Collabora. It has LibreOffice at its core. The web application allows collaborative editing of text documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. Any modern web browser without plug-ins or add-ons can access Collabora Online to edit or collaboratively edit text documents, spreadsheets, presentations and vector graphics.

Collaborative functions include comments which other users can respond to, and document version history enabling comparison of documents and restoring among other things. Advanced collaborative functions include things like integrated video calls or chat whilst collaboratively editing documents, these are possible as Collabora Online integrates with enterprise file synchronisation and sharing cloud solutions such as Nextcloud.


OnlyOffice (formerly TeamLab), stylized as ONLYOFFICE, is a free software office suite developed by Ascensio System SIA, a company headquartered in Riga, Latvia. It features online document editors, platform for document management, corporate communication, mail and project management tools. OnlyOffice is delivered either as SaaS or as an installation for deployment on a private network. Access to the system is provided through a private online portal.

As of January 2021, ONLYOFFICE does not support RTL Languages (such as Hebrew and Arabic), and there's no plan to support RTL in the near future.
