Pros: This is a hard question, but I like what I've seen other users build with sharepoint, however figuring out how to build it myself was much more difficult. I like the end product.

Cons: Too hard for me to figure out. I had to get some help from a friend to even find out if it could do what I needed it to. I tried to build what I needed, but struggled. My friend was able to build me a mock up of what I needed, but I was never able to really figure it out.

Overall: Not many, I decided to go with a software that was much more intuitive and user friendly.

Pros: The great thing about sharepoint is used correctly it can be a storage repository for work from different teams in an organization. It can structure things for you and makes it easy to find whatever you are looking for. You can grant permissions for other teams and or people to use or have your own online repository that holds a lot of information.

Cons: Unless you set up your platform correctly its' very easy to have this become a nightmare in terms of an online/offline information repository. Something the system can't help you with, so you need to make sure you set this up correctly.

Overall: Made it easy for me to get access to training content from different departments.

Pros: SharePoint provides a secure data repository for files, data, and communication. The ability to synchronize files to users' local machines is good when it doesn't hang. The control over security levels, permissions, and access is excellent.

Cons: Archaic limits on file names, continuous problems with synchronization, vague error messages. The reliability of synchronizing files to local machines has been terrible. There has been an improvement as OneDrive merges with SharePoint.

Pros: I would say the thing I like most about this software is that it does its job well and allows to you share all types of information in our company setting.

Cons: I would say the thing I like least about this software is maybe the cost. Its a little pricey but for many companies it may be well worth it. For our setting though it was a little pricey.

Pros: SharePoint allows you to share one document with multiple employees, so when you have a document that needs to be reviewed and edits by multiple people (which is nearly every document we put out) the software is invaluable. I believe it is up to 9 people at a time can be in a document editing. And the software saves previous versions, so nothing is ever lost.

Cons: This may be only a problem with my company, however, the SharePoint Administrator has to set up your "site" for you and if you want to allow others to view your site or share documents, you have to call the administrator and request they provide access to another user. But naturally this doesn't happen quickly, it generally takes a few days. At which point you have become frustrated and save the document to your computer and emailed it out to everyone, eliminating the need for SharePoint. If I am honest, the process is so frustrating, my company has had SharePoint for over 3 years, and very few have actually adopted it, because functionality at least at our company is very lacking. It doesn't make sense that I would have to get approval everytime I want to save a document.

Overall: Document sharing if all parties are given access in time.

Pros: It's a nice tool for collaboration with other people. We use it to house different documents and activities. Everyone in the environment can see everything (based on their security privileges). If a document changes, everyone will see that change. Its a great way to keep everything current when multiple people need access to something or the ability to change something. We also use it for events and calendars.

Cons: The security on it is difficult to administer. We continually need to go to our IT department to have them change some of the settings for our users. If we could nail down the security piece, I would use it a lot more and put more items out there to for others to use.

Pros: Once you get familiar with the tool it is doable.
I do like the option that multiple people were updating the same page and this worked fluently.

Cons: The learning curve is very high and very not intuitive.
The connection between the remote site and local software was a disaster so all the work was done on the remote site. This lead to limited feature, a lot of connectivity issues and frustration.

Pros: We can share all files in a central location for all employees on site and other sites. It makes it easier to see who has viewed or modified a file as well

Cons: It is too easy to clutter the sharepoint site with files and have difficulty finding them. This can be true with any file system though. Navigating and searching for files is subpar

Overall: A central sharing space for all of our documents. Employees just have to search this database to find what they need instead of requesting access from someone else.

Pros: Sharepoint is incredibly versatile and allows you to accomplish a wide variety of tasks and keep data easily and thoroughly. Once set up, the workflows can provide automation that can save time and effort.

Cons: The software is very complex. Getting the correct module setup and establishing workflows requires someone with past knowledge or copious training.

Pros: igrating to Office 365 gives you peace of mind that your system will have lots of uptime: more than 99.9 percent. Office 365 provides ready-to-go intranets, like OneWindow Workplace, so you'll minimize the hassle during setup and installation. Plus, you'll have Microsoft technical support for any problems that you come across. This allows intranet users to be more collaborative with one another in terms of documentation. Items can be uploaded to the cloud through the intranet portal, accessed by authorized users, and saved again by other users when necessary. In the previous versions of SharePoint, there were virtually no social networking options available at all. That has been remedied with the latest version, allowing employees to interact in an easier way with each other.

Cons: An on-premises SharePoint solution provides control of both the front and back end for your organization. By moving to the cloud, you'll only get front-end control, which could disrupt your business's continuity. When Microsoft rolls out updates to SharePoint Online the latest changes could break the business-specific customizations that you're used to and that you've worked hard to build. If you find that working with Office 365 is a slow and painful experience after migration, you may need to increase your bandwidth with your Internet service provider.

Not better than other cloud storages

Pros: First of all, I have to mention the efficiency of the archives system. Being able to add the sharepoint carpet directly on you computer saves a lot of time, since you don't need to even open the internet and lose time going to the sharepoint page. But what if you don't want to have it on your computer, or you're working from another PC? Then you go to sharepoint and open the document directly on the computer, and when you finish it saves automatically on the sharepoint page where it is.

Cons: The problem with sharepoint is that it is not better than other cloud storages. First of all, you can edit a document at the same time another one edit it too, using Word, Excel, PowerPoint online, but these versions are not as good as they normal versions, they are constantly lagging and they're slow. So the best option is to download the document, edit it with regular Word and then upload it again when you save. But this has a major problem, if somebody else has opened the document before you, you cannot save it. So, in conclusion, I think that there are far better softwares than these, like Google Drive for example.

Overall: As long as the Word/Excel/PowerPoint doesn't have a better version, Sharepoint will always be my second option.

Pros: Straight-forward and easy to use, fosters collaboration within my team and other departments. Has great potential for so many business applications and is very customizable.

Comments: I have only had good experiences. Products like software, and anything else with the MS Office label on it are so ubiquitous that that it seems silly to look elsewhere when you know for a fact that there is something made by the same company at a bundled price. So I have nothing bad to say about Sharepoint, but but I also have little to compare it to.

Pros: As an analyst, I use share point to collaborate with SMEs and publish canned reports with ease. But the integrated HR features (my company houses it¿s hr intranet on sharepoint) make it an economical choice to satisfy marketing, HR, analytics, management, and the many users they serve.

Cons: I must admit I a most familiar with the analytics integration and use the product to maintain an open database for canned and dynamic, regularly updated reports. That being said, I am not convinced that there are not other products that could do as much or more better f they were not in the MicroSoft shadow.

Comments: With Zee Drive, Sharepoint is a great tool; without it, it falls short of what it could be by a significant margin.

Pros: Great library function so that the files are on your own pc that auto-sync with SharePoint portal, so that you don't have to go to the portal to manage your files. When working correctly, nice to have your staff have access to the same files so that many people can work on the file.

Cons: System crashes frequently. Mainly, the library sync system crashes. I have lost my access to files many times, including my staff. When this happens, it can take many hours or days for Microsoft support to figure out what the fix is. They keep coming up with different versions and each time we change to a different version it can take hours and hours for support to assist with the conversion.

Overall: Good file sharing system, nice library sync system so that I don't have to log into the portal.

2) One can even build calendar and multiple teams can color code to share schedules which is a very useful feature.
3) SharePoint online location can be opened in explorer window, making navigation super easy!

Cons: It's an expensive software. I wish the company had smaller packages for startup and small to medium businesses. It's mostly suitable for large companies.
Also, a dedicated IT team is rewuired to implement it and add features. For a technical person, it's a cake walk because programming is not that difficult. But, a bit difficult to implement for a first time user (even with coding knowledge)

Overall: File sharing, schedule tracking and management across multiple teams, document managment, reporting (dashboard display in an easily shareable format), etc.

Comments: There are some advantages to using SharePoint. There are some disadvantages to using SharePoint. Choose to use this software based on the requirements of your project, not on the desire of management, IT guys, or developers.

Pros: SharePoint offers an entry level experience for people looking to store MS Office documents, manage lists of information and have a consistent web interface.

Cons: Developing an enterprise system on SharePoint REQUIRES a SharePoint Expert. You can get into a lot of trouble building an enterprise system on SharePoint and not doing it right. This system is expensive and custom development is equally expensive.

Pros: Love the ability to easily add pages and have separate folders/areas for people to go to. Setting up the actual page/site was extremely easy.

Cons: The security settings are too complicated. Giving access to a whole page, verses, just a folder, or a folder within a folder. It's too hard to figure out if you've granted appropriate access.

Overall: Easy to share information between people especially when it's large data that will not go through email. Also, like the feature multiple people can edit things at the same time and then put them back out there.

Pros: I like that members of our multi-national virtual company can access this platform from anywhere, at any time, including from home on their home computers. It doesn't require special software, downloads, or plug-ins. I also enjoy how the platform is very safe - I know my documents won't disappear and multiple safeguards are in place to prevent hackers from accessing our data.

Cons: I don't like how some of the configuration settings are not intuitive. For example, setting certain permissions for certain categories of documents. Sometimes it takes some trial and error to figure out how to configure certain things.

Overall: Being able to easily share and collaborate on documents internationally, including being able to access them from any computer that has internet access. I enjoy knowing I can access my work from anywhere, and don't have to rely on always having my work computer with me.

Pros: It's a very cost-effective way to store a lot of data and basically create your online library for your users. Navigation and ease of use basically depend on how you set it up...so it can match whatever your organization needs.

Cons: Ours wasn't set up right. We did a data dump (unfortunately) rather than keeping only the information we needed. We were using shared files, and the idea was to transfer over our library and controlled documents, but it ended up being just a straight transfer so there was/is a lot of clean-up that needs to be done.

Overall: Cheap and easy form to store a lot of data. Also, it links to our other systems so we can free up space where it would be more costly by placing links to Sharepoint.

Pros: If you are looking for a quick easy company intranet site with no flash and simple content SharePoint is easy to get started with. Seems to be designed for quick easy solutions.

Cons: To focused on out of the box experience. SharePoint can be fully customized but tends to get very in depth and the need to external experience becomes a must.

Overall: We initially purchase this software to provide an external customer portal. We were able to setup quick pages (out of the box look) with easy.

This was much easier than texting everyone every time you needed a shift covered. Also helped prevent having to send out schedules every week because they were posted on sharepoint.

Cons: The system crashed a few times which in turn caused me to lose a few shifts I had picked up therefore losing money.

No need for any external drives or storage software - The support team is ready to help at all times and responses to our queries can be expected soon - Preview Audio/Video files before downloading it - Cloud based service and is great for collaboration

Pros: It can do so much. At the basic level it is a library that you can access securely from all over the world. It can house all kinds of documents and video. It is collaborative, as you can share documents and track who has them checked out at any point. More advanced utilizations include interactive websites and SharePoint workflows (one of its best features!). We moved everyone's departmental files from a shared drive to SharePoint. SharePoint comes with everything turned off initially, so security is straight forward as you set it up. No one has access to anything until you allow it, and you can't see what you don't have access to. It is best to hire a SharePoint expert to set it up, as it's complexity is considerable.

Cons: If you have financial people who create file paths through a dozen folders, you will have trouble storing these items in SharePoint without modifying the folder structure, as there is a limit on file path characters. You cannot store a database in SharePoint, and if you turn on Versioning it will take up a lot more space.

Overall: Worldwide collaborative ability, and great workflows that ensure consistency in common processess.

Pros: I was the SP admin before our company changed hands. Reliability is what I like most. We type up SOPs for everyone on our massive team, and keep them organized on SP. It is good to know that whenever an issue arises for something that may have happened last year, or we need a configuration for an old switch that has crashed, I feel confident that it will be right where it is supposed to be on SP. and I personally have never seen SP crash in the last 5 years.

Cons: The interface has changed with O365, and it is a little more difficult to work with, but this is not really a con, because once if figured it out I had zero complaints

Overall: My team uses SharePoint to store and share our SOPs for ourselves, and the rest of the team.

Pros: SharePoint is relatively simple to use to configure sites, user groups, and the like. Like most CMS's, it can have a default "look and feel" across just about all aspects of a site or group of sites. It's integration with Office 365 is thorough. If you have basic needs for hosting an internal site, with not particular need for complicated integrations or workflows, SharePoint Online is a viable option.

Cons: Unlike the on-premise version of SharePoint, you do have a number of restrictions with SharePoint Online. There is no access to certain logs for troubleshooting. There is no direct access to the database driving the site. Certain automated processes are limited in scope and frequency.

Some general SharePoint issues include workflows that are somewhat handicapped in what they can do. The built-in workflows are very limited in scope, and SharePoint Designer, used to create more advanced SharePoint workflows, has not been updated in years. Microsoft seems to be pushing customers to use Flow, which costs extra and has a different feature set than SharePoint Workflows. Flow seems much more geared towards integration with other, third party sites and platforms, while being very limited in what it can achieve within SharePoint itself. SharePoint Workflows, on the other hand, can perform many more tasks native to SharePoint, but are very limited with any sort of integration to other sites or platforms. There are odd quirks to SharePoint Workflows, though. Such as the ability to copy a file from one library to another, but not move the file. There's also not a method within SharePoint Workflows to move or copy a file to a specific folder within a library. You can use the built-in content organizer rules to handle these tasks, but it add's complexity and is limited in frequency.

Overall: Less complicated infrastructure management.

Comments: I have been using SharePoint for about 7 years and I recommend it to any organization who needs a collaborative workspace. It is a Microsoft product, so in most cases, it works like any other Microsoft product, thus reducing the learning curve.

Pros: My favorite thing about SharePoint is that it is a collaborative workspace with access permission capability. It allows you to share and collaborate with only those who need to have access without making your information public to the entire organization.

Cons: When SharePoint is used for Document Retention it can conflict with the collaborative component if the retention schedule is inflexible.

Pros: The thing I like the most is just the sheer number of things you can do with the current version of Sharepoint. You can use it to organize files in your company across different groups, create a basic, or complex, intranet website as a nice landing page, and that just begins to touch on what you can do. It does get a little overwhelming, but when you have a good, clear plan of what you need to do, Sharepoint can get it done.

Cons: The thing I like the least is the syncing client. It has a lot of issues frequently and doesn't allow certain characters in file names, which has caused numerous issues for myself. While you can theoretically keep up to 10,000 files synced, the software does not perform well beyond about 5,000.

Pros: The best part about using SharePoint is all of the different ways you can setup file shares and team sites. There are so many tools and resouces available for making sure you are connected with your respective teams. I really like the calendar and task list and the ability to customize the site so its not just another version of Windows explorer.

Cons: SharePoint like OneDrive does not allow you to use file names with special characters like !@#$%&*()+ so you end up having to rename the files to so they will upload. Other file share tools like Dropbox do not have this problem and I wish Microsoft would fix this issue. The other issue I have with SharePoint is navigation back and forth into certain pages can be awkward from different views and unless you're a power user of SharePoint you may not know enough to set it up to work easily.

Overall: Overall the benefits of using SharePoint out weigh the issues I have with it and the software is a wonderful tool for teams to use to keep track of not only files, but calendars, meeting notes, tasks and much more.

Pros: It allows the entire team to access large files and able to organize the files any way that the teams want them setup.

Cons: It takes a long time to implement, and small decisions in the beginning are hard to change at the end of the deployment, and often result in needing to rebuild the child site

Pros: These are just some of the pros that we have liked about Sharepoint. It is a central repository / one point of truth to store and share all your company data. Sharepoint complies with ISO standards and other legislation, which is a plus. Sharepoint enforces standards, publish policies, and provides audit trails on your changes. Sharepoint provides instant reporting 24/7 and consolidates data to get better reports. You can create electronic forms to help reduce the paper trail. You can communicate from a single source to give everyone the same message. It is scalable and can address multiple business requirements thereby saving you money.

It integrates with most other software, so if you can use SharePoint for your business solutions, you can still surface the data from other applications in SharePoint.

Cons: This is an expensive solution. You need the right expertise to get it set up correctly. It does require a lot of configuration and training. In larger companies it can take 3 ¿ 5 years to successfully rollout an adopt. The licensing model is very complex.

Overall: One certain benefit is how scalable SharePoint 2016 is without the danger of lowering performance. There¿s been an increase in max file sizes and the number of items that can be indexed, along with a bigger list threshold. Plus you have precise control over license costs per staff member¿ideal for small or growing teams.

Our intranet was built on a SharePoint platform.

Pros: From a user standpoint, once the intranet was developed, it has been easy to manipulate pages and post documents. It has also provided a venue for groups to be able access data in a secure environment.

Cons: It seems to take more of an advanced user to understand the operational side of the software. To recognize the most benefit from this software, it takes buy in and a good amount of effort to train users.

Overall: shared use for groups

Pros: Great to house all information different teams use to collaborate their work. It also helps when things are organized in a way that makes it much easier to locate items/documents.

Cons: Sometimes it takes a bit to get the organization that works for everyone. This can be easily taken care of with a little TLC.

Overall: Ease of use, my team loves it, and the company has much use for this program in our future!

Pros: One place for all shared documents in our office. We have a team of 20 employees and consultants who are revising contracts, handbooks, and other documents. Everything is saved in one location so others can also make revisions.

Cons: I would like to be able to use Sharepoint document while others are using it. I have to wait until someone else logs out of the document. Other than that I really don't have any reservations about it.

Overall: Ability to organize all company documents in one place.

Comments: After years of avoiding SharePoint in favor of small utilities, my international network deployed a SharePoint instance for us. For this use I am in a larger network with many subteams, with use cases for many but not all of SharePoint's capabilities.

Pros: SharePoint is a classy product, fully developed with outstanding capabilities. I like the groups one can set up - we have many, each teams working on various tasks. Each has access to a group calendar, documents, discussion forum, and much more. The navigation bar across the top serves as the key way to move around from group to group as well as get back "home." There are add-ons to SharePoint that we use as well, dashboards and more, that add to its value. It's a full-fledged product that functions well.

Cons: We have found that we must have a dedicated person managing our SharePoint instance - someone who really knows his/her way around the product, so that he/she can help us use its great potential. So you will have to have someone really invest in getting the skills of knowing the product as it can't run on its own easily.

Recommendations to other buyers: SharePoint is ideal for larger, more complex teams - where its features really start to shine.

Pros: What I like most about Sharepoint is that it is accessible to all of our team members and all the information is live and current. The shortcuts you can install on your computer make it easy to upload and find information. This is time saving and makes us more efficient at you jobs.

Cons: The thing I like least about share point is the versioning and printing the PDF's directly from Sharepoint. Printing is much easier from the shortcuts.

Comments: Would recommend any organizations looking to implement SharePoint (either edition) develop a pool of trained site owners and limit who is given design and full control permission.

Pros: Widely used platform that is adaptable to most internal requirements for knowledge management and collaboration.

Cons: SharePoint 2010 is not mobile friendly and requires upgrade to 2013 or 2016 edition to enable better integration for mobile viewing/editing documents.

Pros: This software is wonderful for being able to access this from remote locations and being able to share with others in the office.

Cons: the item I dislike about this is the calendar. I would like something for agents to be able to add what they would like to the calendar. At this time, it is not user friendly.

Overall: The benefits are that I am able to access this anywhere.

A very complicated platform that can be simplified.

Pros: It is amazing what you can do with this program to create communities that collaborate and communicate.

Cons: The organization of the site is confusing and can be made much simpler. Microsoft "ribbon" has been a miserable failure of two many icons cutely organized but not effectively so. Productivity should have been the focus.

Easy to find what you are looking for.

Pros: As the SharePoint admin for a small company. I was able to setup and configure the server quickly. My users were able to learn and use it in a short period of time. Overall it was a good experience.

Cons: I would have to say the overall cost. Itbwas worth the value, but the software was expensive and we had to purchase a new server with enough speed and space to run it.

Easy to use, lots of features.

Pros: I like that each department can make sharepoint individual for their needs. The search function is very useful to find documents and words in documents. The ability to store lots of different documents and then use sharepoint as an online library is very convenient.

Cons: Its not easy to always find the document you are looking for. When I search, I get every document with that word in the document or the title.

Overall: It is easy to share documents throughout the organization. Not everyone in our organization can post documents so that limits our ability, but the administrators are pretty good about uploading the documents needed.

Pros: SharePoint offers organizations great flexibility, easy to use functionality for document retention and storage, team sites, calendars, and much more.

Cons: Can be difficult to learn security and permissions for new users. If functionality is locked down by your organization it can severely limit capabilities of the tool.

Pros: It has great collaboration features to get people working together, even when they aren't near each other physically. My current company uses SharePoint as an intranet where there is a section for each department and we have used SharePoint to make paper forms digital which are now stored in databases. This is only one of many ways that we have automated processes and actually got to the point where it is our main internal portal.

Cons: I use the cloud version so there are a lot of limits when it comes to control. There are also item limits and resource limits within workflow that put a cap on the amount of resources you can use. Sometimes this makes it difficult to develop a solution or meet the requirements of a project.

Overall: Collaboration and the ability to automate processes is the biggest advantage of using this software.

I have been using SharePoint for quite a while and I like the ease of use.

Pros: Things are easy to get to. Share point is a site that anyone can pick up and start using. I am using it for 2 different sites and I can add images and links easily. Share point is a preferred site for us internally and a lot of people benefit from it. I have admin rights to it and I can make changes to a particular share point site easily.

Cons: Sometimes have to dig to find things. I was trying to get to a site once where I was the secondary administrator and I couldn't find it. I had to ask the primary admin and he had to help me. It will be helpful if I can get to a particular link or page easily.

Overall: Anyone can use it.

Pros: The ability to share files with my team. Because they have it on the phone, I can send a file immediately because they have access.

Cons: The access is a little tricky with how we try and set it up. Playing around that that is what is holding me back from full functionality.
