This is a quick guide to the nextcloud circles extension.
Circles allows users to create their own groups for sharing, messaging etc. It is very practical for sharing the storage space of your faircloud with other faircloud users.
To share your cloudspace with other you have to create a circle in your circles app on the top side of the webview of your faircloud.
There you have an overview of the existing circles.
Creating a circle
In the top left searchbar you can type a name, choose the circle type and create a circle. The following types exist:
Personal Circle: A circle for yourself to share links with etc. The circle is not accessible by anybody else but yourself.
Public Circle: A Circle that anyone can access and join. It's visible for everyone using our cloud.
Closed Circle: Can only be joined if allowed by an admin. This circle is visible for everyone.
Secret Circle: Cannot be seen by other users. Only can be joined if you're invited by an admin.
All circles can still be managed by admins and owners.
The circles can be managed by choosing the circle you want to edit in the dark grey bar second from the left where you can search for circles.
Editing the name, description as well as kicking users and deleting the circle can only be done by owners. Admins can add users, change roles and connect groups with the circle.
