Logging in

There are two different places to log in to for the Collective Tools programs:

  • Nextcloud for files, calendars, contacts and project management
  • Rocket.Chat for the chat.

Depending on if you use the browser or apps for desktop or mobile, this will look slightly different. If you only use the browser, you can access Rocket.Chat from your Nextcloud menu, and only need to remember one web address.

You will use your Nextcloud account to log in to both programs, so you only need one user account.

Nextcloud

In your browser

Log in at https://your-organisation-name.collective.tools (replace "your-organisation-name").
