This sounds really ridiculous! In a business environment you are worried about the difference of. $130 a month? I mean how many hours a month do you spend troubleshooting?
How many hours do you have in this whole fiasco? It seems like alot. $140 a month would save you a ton of money, actually.
Assuming the $140/m product actually works without bugs. The NextCloud setup was hopefully going to fix all the problems we saw with Box.
Again, I've gone over additional training with people using the cloud about exactly how to move files around and verify that it happens. But "the cloud put my files back".
I'd love to command more control over technology and just demand people use it, but that's assuming the product actually functions.
Unless you're suggesting I tell people they aren't allowed to rename files or use cut/paste within cloud folders?
And yes the environment here is a bit toxic in terms of people getting a kick out of whining about tech and using that as a jab on me. I'm often backed into a corner being forced to try and explain why some random service we use doesn't have some random feature they think it should have. Like "well how come I can't XYZ huh huh huh!!?!?!.........well because that service doesn't have the feature..... why wouldn't they put that feature in! It's a basic thing, why why WHY!!?!?!..........um, I don't know, ask them."
I hate being made to explain why other people's software works a certain way or has or doesn't have a certain feature or can or can't do something. As if I work for those people or have any say in how their software runs. I once had to endure a 10 minute lecturing session because the boss didn't like that Adobe has a monthly subscription model for Creative Suite. Chewing me out as if I were literally the CEO of Adobe.
Come to think of it, I often have to be the whipping boy for every technology we use, every time it gives us any grief. They always act like we have unlimited choices in services and so if this one hiccups, there must be 32 more to choose from that not only have every feature we use, but all the features we want, and is also in the right budget.
But I don't want to rant! lol
I really do want a cloud that just works though, handling basic things like reliably syncing files to computers, and can handle file renames and moving files around without creating copies and such.
