From town halls to NGOs, team members all over the world face the same question, again and again. Where are the files that I need to do my job? The brand new release of the open source project management software OpenProject tries stop that chaos by deeply integrating into Nextcloud.

Nextcloud does a great job at storing, editing and sharing files. However, before starting to work on files, teams typically break down their work in tasks and specify who does what and when. When working on such a task, very often files get created, edited or shared. With the new integration everyone can clearly communicate which files are needed to get the job done and where the next co-worker can find the results for further processing.
