Cryptpad seems like an excellent, secure alternative to the Google universe.

I’d like to suggest we share a Resonate work team.

I’ve heard @sganesh @brndnkng and (I believe) @Hakanto all speak favorably of their experiences with this service. Does this mean there are already some sharing teams set up?

If so, may I join? If not, want me to offer one?

Yes! Let’s try it out! I have no experience with it myself. Interested in @sganesh and @brndnkng 's thoughts.

@Nick_M – is Cryptpad something we could host on our own servers? Whatever we choose, that’s essential for GDPR right?

Not sure what other alternatives there are that have similar functionality. I’ve used Nextcloud but do not find the office tools that are included to be very dependable.

Here’s a link to my profile. I think this is how other users can connect with my account and share documents.

Also, here is a link to a simple test document. Say Hi, try it out!

Personal accounts are free and come with 1 GB of storage.

a 5 eu / mo single user upgrade account has 5 GB storage.

Among other team and organizational options, it looks like we could host an instance, price not listed.

It is a free and opensource product though, with source code on github.

Here is the guide for setting up a production instance.

In terms of usability, Cryptpad seems pretty viable — it’s definitely clunkier than Google, and in terms of external documents there might be some confusion for those we work with who aren’t familiar. But I do think the benefits as you all have mentioned outweigh the pretty small caveats!

Will make note that I’ve only really experimented with it for document production — think there needs to be a pretty in depth review of its sheets capabilities, esp if there are significant differences from excel
