The Docs integration is essential as having any kind of Company file system based soley on Zextras and Zimbra is not something that works for many people. It's fine for the odd file. having access to current storage and current file systems is essential. I had installed the Open Drive plugin you put out on Git Hub a few years ago and that was pretty much exactly what we wanted in terms of functionality I got it working and it was fine but out of date and complex.

This would also solve the need to have files mountable on user desktops rather than only through Zimbra or ZxDrive app.

I am of the same opinion for the Docs server, but not on an old LibreOffice V4.

Do you plan to use Onlyoffice ?
Which I remind, works on a simple JSON request to an API link ?
A Docker is enough to set up and update Onlyoffice !

> Microsoft Outlook can leverage on EAS and Address Book to provide a full Outlook connector experience without any plugin on the client!

It's not fully true. I most wish Outlook plugin to manage Zimbra sieve filter rules like ZCO. Disadvatage of Outlook rules is moved messages deletes from Inbox and recreates in target folder filling in dumpster.

Support for a newer version of LibreOffice Online, or why not Collabora Online, and the ability to share docs with external users via secure public links, would bring the solution to the level of features of drive tools such as Nextcloud.

Hi Snowy,

according to the roadmap, the External account integration feature will be implemented later this year. It will allow users to manage files from external systems like gDrive, Dropbox, and Owncloud to simplify both the usage of content from external systems and content migration from third-party systems to Zextras Drive.

Moreover, our team is working on a Desktop client. We do not have an ETA as to when this will be released into production, so it is not inserted in the Roadmap yet. However, we will make an announcement when it will be available.

Hi Mark,

our team is working to improve Zextras docs day by day, to enhance it with new features. This is why we don’t plan to use a third-party system but we continue instead making our own product increasingly better. Leveraging Docs, users can edit and collaborate on documents, presentations, and spreadsheets. Of course, specific feedback about collaborative editing features that may be useful for users is more than welcome.

Hi Aleksei,

our teams are working to make Outlook users connect to Zextras Mobile without installing any additional extensions to the client itself. This approach might limit the features available for the user. However, it's quite normal since Outlook is another mail server's client 🙂 Moreover, by using standard protocols, users won't need administrative rights, neither won't be scared by installing a security patch.

Hi Cristophe, yes our teams are working to improve Zextras Docs to make it increasingly full-featured, although, as we answered to @Mark, we don’t plan to include third-party systems. We’ll keep you updated on this page!

Hi Arman, >> our teams are working to make Outlook users connect to Zextras Mobile without installing any additional extensions to the client itself <> users won't need administrative rights << System administrators in corporate network will free to deploy "Zextras Filter Outlook Add-in" for Outlook EAS/IMAP users automatically or by demand.

I'd also like to see a chat search feature in Teams. Either part of the global search (like the old zxchat) or part of the tab (like you have search in drive). At the moment the only way to do it is to scroll up and up loading chat history and then ctrl-f to use browser search facility.
