    Works like a charm! I tried to add my wopi-configuration as a guideline for others, but the comment interface ruined the markup.
    Thanks a lot for this!

    Hi Koen, wonderful! That's great to hear! Would you please share the configuration with me via email, so that we can put it somewhere in the README?

    Congratulations to all involved for the successful integration. Nice would be a more extensive documentation.

    For user documentation I suggest to add that to https://docs.moodle.org/37/en/mod/collabora/view (view) and https://docs.moodle.org/37/en/mod/collabora/mod (settings)

    Hi Uwe, thanks for the feedback! Hi Koen, thank you very much for creating user documentation for this plugin! Your effort is appreciated smile I linked to your settings documentation in the "Useful links" section on this page.

    Hi,
    collaborative spreedsheet works great, thanks for the plugin.
    As I understand it, anybody who is enroled in a cource containing a collaborative document may add, change or delete content.
    What can be done to avoid complete destruction of a document by students trying to be funny, or how can I redo the destroyed document,
    is there some sort of versioning?

    Best regards
    Ralf

    Hi,
    I am trying to use this plugin with my libreoffice online server, that works fine with my Nextcloud site, but, after try https://github.com/learnweb/moodle-mod_collabora/blob/master/Collabora-Config.md and https://docs.moodle.org/39/en/Collabora_Activity_Module, I can't make it works. Every site are in the same server, but with different addresses. I'm using Apache2 and the version of LOOLWSD is 7.0.0 and LOKit is 7.0.1.1.0. All three sites use ssl, with Letsencrypt certificate.
    I'll be so grateful for your help, because I think that's a great opportunity to be free from big data companies.
    If you need any more data about my configs, just tell me.

    Thanks in advance.

    Is it true that only 10 open documents are allowed with the free version of collabora online even though it is integrated with MOODLE as shown in the following link? https://nextcloud.com/collaboraonline/

    Hi Jeonghun,
    yes, there is this limitation as with the free version of libreoffice-online in general.
    Please have a look at https://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-online/
    If you compile it yourself, you may be able to change these limits.
    A good starting point for this could be here: https://github.com/husisusi/officeonlin-install.sh
    Best regards
    Andreas
