I have deployed Nethserver with Webtop at our office with 15 users. I have noticed a couple of minor things so far which may be oversights or bugs (probably easy to fix) and would also like to comment on some things that would make the Webtop client better (just my opinion of-course!).
Maybe I should start new topics but being quite new to the Nethserver Community I wasn’t too sure whether to do that.
Firstly, the issues I have noticed so far:-
- English spelling mistake. Mostly noticable on the main email page. Messagges should be Messages. I’ll keep my eye out for more. Very minor issue but worth mentioning for future versions.
- The calendar seems to have an issue which I think is related to the timezone you set. For example, I have TZ=Australia/Brisbane (which is +10). When I set a calendar event before 10am, the event goes in to the day before but still has the correct time & date. If I change my TZ, the same thing happens. Eg. Australia/Perth (+8), any event prior to 8am is shown on the calendar view in the day before. In both cases my mobile (Z-push) shows the event correctly.
Now, some things I think may improve Webtop. It’s entirely possible that some of these things may already be implemented and I haven’t worked out where to enable them:-
Option for no “are you sure” prompt when deleting trash (and maybe junkmail too).
Option to automatically delete trash when logging off.
Retain folder view at next logon (I have lots of subfolders and have to keep expanding them).
Option to switch off the preview pane. Not a biggy but some people might like the option.
Ability to remove any attachment from email by right-click “Remove”. This is something I have always used a lot where I want to keep the email text but remove the attachment after I have saved it elsewhere (maybe a large manual someone sent me for example) to keep my quota down.
Finally, I just thought I’d share how I put my company logo on the Webtop login page. I looked everywhere for instructions without luck and sort of stumbled on a solution by trial and error. Maybe this can help someone else.
The sonicle logo on the login page is called login.png and is 625 x 265px with background colour #f8f8f8.
So I made a png file with my logo the same size and fill the backround the same colour and named it login.png.
Then I used the “tools | public images upload” in webtop admin to upload my file.
Restart and my logo was in the login page.
Looks pretty good. https://gw.multicomqld.com.au/webtop if anyone wants to see it. You may need to refresh if the connection times out the first time. This happens a lot but I haven’t worked out why yet. Probably my firewall or something in my NS ssl setup.
