  • Advice on project management and/or groupware service (calendar, tasks, chat, channels) for research project
    Nextcloud on its own or with / mattermost / some other tool which enables channels/chat. Nextcloud does come with shared calendars and a kanban board app, which seems fine.

  • Trying out communication apps to hone my team's productivity and to make our system more organized at work.
    My Personal Choices and Recommendation: Chanty and RocketChat. Gathertown is also a good thing to add in as one of your virtual offices but it’s not appropriate for daily use. I just recently encountered Vocal and my team uses this one at the moment, It’s also an alternative for slack and has the same vibes but this one is more convenient since you can use video chat. It’s a voice-first app with virtual offices... - Source: Reddit / 9 months ago

  • Why does element has data linked to me on iOS?

No acceptance in family, so migrated back to mail and sms and the family to the whole zoo of messengers. I think XMPP was to late when jumping to the phone and the missing webclient is the other point. It's a pitty. Beside some Callmanager- and... - Source: Reddit / 9 months ago

  • Zulip – Threaded real-time chat for distributed teams
    The carousel on the main page is very easily understandable, which is great! The whole topics (sub-channels, basically) idea seems interesting as well, though personally the solution itself seems pretty similar to two other great pieces of software out there:
