If you are an administrator, you can also manage users and administer the server. These links do not appear to a non-admin user.

The options listed in the Personal Settings Page depend on the applications that are enabled by the administrator. Some of the features you will see include the following:

  • Usage and available quota
  • Manage your profile picture
  • Full name (You can make this anything you want, as it is separate from your Nextcloud login name, which is unique and cannot be changed)
  • Email address
  • List of your Group memberships
  • Change your password
  • Using two-factor authentication
  • Setting your preferences
  • Choose the language for your Nextcloud interface
