“SharePoint and File Storage”

OverallMy overall experience with SharePoint has been positive across the many years I've used it. One of the best features I learned about in recent years was the ability to map SharePoint to a drive on your computer. This has really helped in terms of uploading and downloading multiple files simultaneously. If you plan to use SharePoint, I highly recommend looking into this feature as it will save you a ton of time and enable you faster access to your files versus accessing them from a browser window. Mapping is extremely easy and, in my experience, invaluable. You will also find that you can post graphics on your SharePoint pages. We frequently post "work anniversary" or "birthday wishes" for our team. Lastly, the calendar is extremely helpful as you can block out vacations, conferences, and other events, and know, at a glance, what's happening each day without having to search through Outlook or other resources.
ProsI've used SharePoint for over a decade. Long before "the cloud" was the tech buzz word, SharePoint was providing users with web-based storage access, and it still does. There are many things to like about SharePoint. First and foremost, it functions much like a web site. Users can easily navigate to their SharePoint home page and set up additional pages, upload and download files, add calendars and calendar events, and much more. SharePoint also creates archives of all files, so if you revise a file and then later need to see an earlier version of that file, you can use SharePoint's versioning functionality to do this. It's a great utility for storing files of all sorts that others on your team need to use. Uploading and downloading files couldn't be easier. We created different landing pages based on our company's needs. For example, we have a Marketing page to store our collateral, a Content page for manuscripts and legal documents, and an HR page for human resources-related materials.
ConsIt can take users a bit of time to understand the unique functionality of SharePoint. However, if you navigate around the toolbars you should find what you are looking for. In terms of design, SharePoint is relatively basic, so users looking for something with a bit more visual flash might be disappointed. Though if you are mainly looking for a reliable place to manage countless files, SharePoint is probably right for you.

“Bobby's Sharepoint Review”

OverallIt's great that most big companies use Sharepoint as well. We have been able to use Sharepoint with multiple companies with integrating new softwares and products. It has definitely been the best product for working with teams inside and outside of the company.
ProsThis software is perfect for sharing files throughout the company, especially one like ours that covers multiple states. With Sharepoint, we can work on things as a team without having to be on a call with one another.
ConsIt took a little bit to get setup and to train everyone how to use it, but once everyone grasped the concept, it hasn't been too bad.

“Share and SharePoint alike”

OverallAs mentioned briefly above, my most recent experience with SharePoint is using lists. This particular list (with a workflow to assign tasks) replaces an Excel spreadsheet of the same information. Using a SharePoint list instead, complete with different views and user alerts, allows relevant people access to the information they need in the right format, without having to duplicate work, send email updates, etc. While SharePoint can be frustrating, it seems evident from the updates that there is a move towards more intuitive use.
ProsThe recent updates to SharePoint have come a long way in making it more intuitive to use, and providing a better looking user interface. The management of the 'apps' (e.g. document libraries, lists, promoted links) has become much easier of late. It would be useful to see more information added to the apps descriptions, to help users determine which best suits their needs, without having to navigate to the Office help pages and/or third party sites. The best feature for my current use is the ability to create different views of a list, and initiate workflows to assign list items as Tasks for certain users, thereby automating the sharing of the distribution of workload.
ConsSome parts of SharePoint's functionality can be baffling - without formal training, it can be very difficult to work out how best to utilise SharePoint's features. When SharePoint is used across a large institution, without consistent training differing practices across different teams can make collaboration hard, as Sites/Pages/Libraries have been set up to function so differently. Inheriting a SharePoint site set up by someone else is tricky, as the logic they used to manage the site can be hard to decipher. Permissions can be hard to manage, particularly as its rarely clear to the requester to whom their requests for access are being sent. This can be frustrating, as it can contradict the 'Share' aspect of SharePoint.

“Proficient tool for storing and sharing the documents”

OverallMy overall experience with Microsoft has been good so far. I am sure there is still so much to learn about this application and I am still discovering new things occasionally. It is suitable if you are looking to create a cloud-based repository of documents and it works efficiently if the IT support team of your company set it up perfectly and they keep updating it steadily.
ProsSharePoint is the cloud-based tool, which facilitates the storage, sharing, accessing, and managing the files from any location/device using centralized location link. It is a flexible platform and can be implemented and managed in the way you like it. We have been using this software in our company for almost 3 years now and it is extremely compatible with our needs. It helps in creating a common repository of documents, which can be accessed by multiple users/devices. It works well within groups where the permission to access, edit is given by the primary user. It is one of the best software to manage the confidential information in a controlled and restrictive way. There is an option to chat within the group as well. All files can be added to library by simple step of drag and drop. It has abundant features to choose from and you can tailor them as per your business needs. Since it is cloud based, it provides inter and intra-departmental cooperation creating a perfect collaborative environment for a small organization.
ConsOne has to be experienced with Microsoft products in order to run this smoothly else, it could be little complicated to learn in the initiate phase. Secondly, it could be expensive than the other products in the market however it provides good features but if you are looking for economical solution, you should research more before buying this. If someone authorized edits something in a document, it becomes difficult to locate where the correction has been made. Though it shows the real-time notification I someone is editing but if you try to locate for the past corrections, it is not easy to find out.

“Daily user and administrator, ”

OverallWe use SharePoint primarily as version control for documentation and also for request tracking via a SharePoint list. It is an adequate solution for these needs but leaves some things to be desired.
ProsConvenient way to share files in and outside of your organization. It is truly loaded with good features; whether or not your instance will be capable of utilizing them all is another question (see cons).
ConsOccasional integration issues with Microsoft's other apps such as OneNote. I had the hardest time moving a OneNote from one SharePoint to another and wound up having to do so one page at a time. SharePoint lists are our only recourse within my company for external user request tracking, and they are clunky at best. Users do not like the front-end form no matter how much tinkering we do in the provided form design tools SharePoint Design and Infopath. Poor visibility of who has access to what. The permissions hierarchy and inheritance is just not clear, and clean-up of any SharePoint you take ownership of will be a hassle. Many useful and seemingly rudimentary tasks are made difficult by integration issues with our corporate network, however this could have as much to do with our excessive security protocols than SharePoint. As such, I have not considered it in this review's score but gone ahead and included this complaint as a point of reference for anyone considering adopting SharePoint at their company. If your company's infrastructure and security model is already difficult to navigate, then it is unlikely you'll be able to take full advantage of what SharePoint has to offer without a very talented implementation team.

“SharePoint is the best web based intranet software to streamline the management of the data and info”

OverallI have been using this software for information sharing and accessing within my organisation and I can say it's one of the best online web-based tool for sharing record and information and that too very securely. Definitely one of the best software for intranet web based information sharing.
ProsMicrosoft SharePoint is the best software for sharing of documentation and information witin an organization. This software given best control to the owners to enable controlled and restricted access to the information for the targetted users. This helps users to access the information remotely from any location using centralized location link using web browser hence the companies can place the data securely at a centralized location even with password protection and let their employees to access the information virtually from any location using the link or url to access the information. Users can also edit or create new information on the portal using certain credentials provided as per the organizational chart. This also helps companies to distribute the important bulletin without being any need to distribute that locally to the employees. It's one of the best software for such controlled and restricted access to the information and valuable data.
ConsThough it is very effective tool for management of information Sharing within an organization but it require some experience to set the checkpoints to enable the restricted access to the information to a certain group of peoples such as password protection, applying some read only checks and other restrictions that can be implemented.

“A professional document sharing and collaboration tool ”

OverallI've recently been evaluating SharePoint to determine if it is an effective way for our company to share sensitive documents internally and externally with other users involved in our projects. It does seem to be a solid tool for sharing documents securely so we have decided to go with it. So far, so good. I will say that most of the same features are available through Google Docs for free but ultimately, it was the whole package that SharePoint is part of that convinced us to move our workspace into it for the sake of convenience and consistency.
ProsThis software allows you to share your documents, edit and collaborate with other users anywhere in the world in real time, securely. It's an amazing thing when you can see who is currently viewing and editing a document and everything anyone does is automatically saved and secure within the group it is shared with. SharePoint helps save an incredible amount of time and makes remote meetings much more productive. One of the possible drawbacks is that it seems to be limited to people who also use Sharepoint and live in the Microsoft community of software but I recently learned that you can share with people who don't have Microsoft accounts by providing them with a security key to access the documents. It becomes a two step process for them to accept the document and then get the key to enter but at least it is possible and this makes sure your documents remain secure.
ConsIt is possible to share with people who aren't part of your network or even Microsoft's network but again, it takes extra steps. Also, there are settings that enable or disable the feature and it is not very clear where the settings are or how to use all the different share options. It took some trial and error, testing and talks with Microsoft support before we were comfortable that it could do what we needed it to do and how to do it. Even after all of that, it is still a bit unclear when certain options should be used but I suppose that could be considered a benefit of the software's flexibility to do the similar things with different methods.

“The Future Software Point of Sharing a Perfect Collaborative Tool to make an Awesome Organization!”

Pros+ Creating a new SharePoint site/app/directory is very easy and manageable. Users need to request the access before using the website or owner can manage how and whom to give what permission level of access on each site. + We could inherit permissions from top level site or we can manage permissions separately to each individual sub sites. + Permissions on each document level! Jaw Dropping feature of genius. + It has a plenty amount of features to choose from and you can customize each app to fit your business needs. + You can also add sandbox solution based or script based jssor/jsom apps to each SharePoint site. + Very easy to share files and information across our organization. + Perfect for document management and storage system for employees of many locations. Syncing the SharePoint content is a nice feature. + Uploading/Checking in thousands of documents at one click with the help of explorer is definitely something special. + Connecting SharePoint calendars to your Outlook calendar will make your work life easy. + SharePoint Designer, Info path, Nintex, K2 all are bonus to have for OOTB Workflow configurations. + Content management Checkin, Checkout, Publish, Approve/Reject features are nice features to have on each document. + Not only Search, You can even do Filters among search results. + Not only Filters, You can do Best Bets on search results. + What is more, All search results are very fast across the whole website.
ConsA humble advice to Microsoft SharePoint team! since we can't host External websites on cloud, It will be good if they come up with Team Communication sites, Forms apps within On Premises. Comments from Anonymous users on our SharePoint Blogs: If we have the ability to get comments/likes from anonymous users outside our organization it would be helpful for organizations which are depending on SharePoint On Premises version because of PPI (Personal Protected Information) data. In Overall, There isn't anything to dislike about it, to be honest it is everything we've expected it to be.

“Microsoft SharePoint CMS for Managing content and documents of organization”

OverallIf you are small organization, always prefer SharePoint Online services and SharePoint on-premise is recommended for big organization usually.
Pros1. Since it is Microsoft product, Area of development and support is very vast and also accepted globally. 2. Guidelines for installing and configuring SharePoint is very easy to compare to other CMS available in the market. 3. From performance and security point of view, SharePoint is the best product for any organization. 4.Can be easily integrated with other Microsoft product such as Outlook, Azure, Yammer, Office, and PowerBI etc. 5. SharePoint also has Foundation version (till SharePoint 2013) for free to target smaller organization. 6. With the release of SharePoint Online on cloud, It provides more flexibility and less IT team work for any organization, especially for a smaller organization.
Cons1. Maintaining SharePoint on-premises for smaller organisation becomes very difficult and costly because it requires more technical support. 2.SharePoint may have added customization options for those who wants to implement intranet system, Microsoft actually discourages this from happening. The ease of customization with custom designs, especially from a home page perspective, can help businesses better tailor their intranet experience to the individual workers. 3. To work SharePoint search efficiently, Lots of internal customization is needed. 4. Since for SharePoint online, Microsoft is maintaining server, which ends in providing less scope for customizing. 5.Migration from old SharePoint version to new is little complex and requires lots of efforts

“Safe, Secure and one of the best Microsoft Products ever!”

OverallSharepoint has helped me a lot in my business. Sharepoint acts as an extra storage device for me to store all my business relevant data. The space provided by Sharepoint is also quite extensive hence anything can be saved. Entire folders can be uploaded into the Sharepoint browser link so need not to upload/save one file at a time. Also, being a product of Microsoft, it has the best security available. This software is reliable and the top notch security ensures all my data is saved and can't be compromised. My colleagues and I can share the Sharepoint link and can save data simultaneously and also work from it in live time. One of the best Microsoft Products
ProsInstant reporting 24/7 and consolidate data to get better reports Can create a unique SharePoint intranet Can enable cross-department collaboration Can address multiple service providers We can decide on the best pricing model Perfect solution for small businesses planning to grow big. Central repository / one point of truth to store and share all company data. There are plenty of licensing models to choose from that will suit any business size. Extremely scalable and can address multiple business requirements thereby saving you money Communicate from a single source to give everyone the same message. Create electronic forms to reduce the paper trail.
ConsCustomization time and costs Integration can require extra development effort The licensing model is very complex You need the right expertise to get it set up correctly. It will require a lot of configuration and training. It's browser based so if there is no internet, it means no SharePoint

“SharePoint is an excellent way to set up your company's intranet.”

OverallA wealth of experience in working with intranet communities. I found this to be invaluable as I went on to create my own online communities.
ProsI was part of the team with the Oregon Department of Administration in the creation of their employee intranet built with SharePoint. It was an easy transition for me to learn SharePoint for the following reasons: Combined with previous knowledge of HTML, my familiarity with Microsoft products made it easy for me to learn SharePoint. With two day's of formal training, I was able to get up to speed in virtually no time. SharePoint has a wide variety of pre-built modules out of the box from which developers can select. One very pleasing aspect of the finished project was that the end-users came on board and operated their new employee website with ease and productivity. It gives the State employees a place both for resources for knowledge of government procedures and a marketing platform to promote their office to the rest of the department. It gives them a place for teams to streamline their workflow within each office and work together as virtual teams to enhance their digital processes. It gives each office an opportunity to individualize their space on the intranet to show their office's competencies and assets. As I am a designer at heart, SharePoint gave me the opportunity to express my creativity through the interpretation and development of each module to fit the end-user.
ConsIf you have the experience ( a background with Microsoft products), it's easy to learn SharePoint. If not, it can be a bit trickier in that the HTML coding is sufficiently different within SharePoint that it can lead to confusion. I found this easy to overcome, but some might not and that is a consideration when selecting software.

“SharePoint is best for chatting purpose in a group.”

OverallI always use this efficient software for sharing the important information and documents with our friends, colleagues and team members. For me, it is the best for everything such as the sharing, storage and managing. SharePoint is best and great for storage. I can store all of my important files and information in a easier manner. I would recommended this software because SharePoint is best for the chatting purpose in a group.
ProsSharePoint is the best software because we can easily share all of our important information, data, files and documents with our friends, colleagues and everyone. It also help us to managing a large amount of data in a efficient way. SharePoint also provide the great opportunity for chatting in a group and colleagues at everywhere. This software is most reliable and also provide the convenient way for the new users that they easily store large amount of information, data and documents in a instant way. Hence, it is a great software for everything such as storage, sharing and managing.
ConsFor the new users, they faced a lot of problems while using this efficient software because SharePoint tool provide the many options which is so difficult for us to choose. The another disadvantage is that in this software, there are a lot of security issues. But otherwise our files and data are always secure and save. Moreover, it is so expensive that's why a lot of peoples cannot afford it and not get benefited from this efficient software.

“SharePoint - 2018 review”

OverallI used to not like SharePoint at all. It was not user-friendly at all and essentially it wasn't functional. Now that the SharePoint site I use has had some re-modeling and organizing, I feel more educated on the product and I am able to use the features to access the information I need to preform my job duties. SharePoint became much more user-friendly when I was able to customize the site for my team's specific needs. I had to work with my organization's specialized SharePoint experts to educate myself and my team, and get access to several controls in order to make the necessary changes my team needed, which was a difficult process. Overall, once all the changes were made the SharePoint site my team and I use is functioning and we are easily able to retrieve documents quickly, share important bits of information, update calendars to keep everyone informed of events, PTO, OOO, etc., and we can access links to all the websites we need to use to preform our job all in one location. It's great for training purposes and is helpful for new hires to have all the information they need in one convenient location. Now that SharePoint is up and running properly for my team, it is a very helpful resource that we could not do our job without.
ProsIt's customizable and has lots of capabilities. There are multiple applications you can add to a webpage.
ConsThe company I work for has controls set in place that limit your ability to have free range of the customizations and capabilities of the site. We had to do a lot of work to create a useable platform for the team I work on to be able to easily access documents and build a library of information. The search function is not user friendly.

“Creating your team site is easy”

ProsEasy to use site creation allows you to have your own intranet. You create a page, give it a title, and then start adding announcement tabs, calendars, documents, and other additional features. The basic layout is easy to understand. It is a great value if you purchased an Office 365 license. You can add additional apps with the online version, but the on-premise version has more of the robust features. Anyone can manage a SharePoint site and its great for team collaborations and shared documents. Its a great way to give your company their own website internally. You can also use it for your own documentation or knowledge base center internally. This works really well as others can make changes to documents and edit files as they wish.
ConsSharePoint has some confusing permission issues if you're wary that someone in your company has too much or too little access. If an employee checks out a document then you may have to check that back in. These are just a few issues I had with permissions within SharePoint. We used the cloud based version at first, which lacks a lot of features and limits the amount of creativity you could add to the site. I really wish Microsoft would make all the menus a bit more user friendly because I feel like Site Settings can be confusing for someone simply wanting to manage one or two in-depth details of the site and its users.

“Sharepoint review”

OverallOne 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.
ProsThese 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.
ConsThis 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.

“Great backend for intranets”

ProsI have used Sharepoint in many different capacities and have found it to be the best for internal use / intranets. It has the ability to house thousands of resources that can be easily navigated in the backend with an uncomplicated sitemap structure. Whilst working for a large UK company that relied on Sharepoint to aid colleagues in their day to day working life on the Retail shop floor, I found the CMS to be consistent and efficient especially with the publishing and un-publishing of content (drag and drop and bulk editing functionalities). Sharepoint not only allows for a collaborative working space but has become a dynamic, integrated platform where users not only see the intranet as a document repository, but a source of knowledge.
ConsDue to it's ability to house such a large amount of information, Sharepoint (like all CMS') really does need to have consistent, aggressive house keeping done. If archiving or deleting material is not high on the list of the CMS users or owners, the backend of this software becomes a mindfield - the same is also true if users are not taught the intended sitemap structure in their induction to the system. Additionally, the legacy versions don't have the most beautiful looking interface and at times it can be a bit confusing to master but once you know how to use it, you know for life.

“Sharepoint- Most feasible and vital software for data sharing.”

OverallWell, my overall experience with SharePoint has been fantastic, we have moved all most all our client and inter company data to SharePoint primarily because of the features and ease of access it provides in such low rates, SharePoint has certainly been a boon for my company.
ProsThe best feature that I like about Share Point is its ability to share even huge data sets, by huge data sets, I am talking about sharing data more than 100 MB , this feature is not present in almost all its competitors, SharePoint also has the ability to share the data via a unique shareable link. SharePoint also is the most trusted data sharing software with negligible outcomes of data leak incident in to the wrong hands, SharePoint also provides a plug in for Outlook by which we can directly share heavy attachments directly from our Outlook account via shareable link.
ConsThe one feature that i don't like about SharePoint is that it takes time to add a user/individual into the SharePoint client site, the approval takes some time and that becomes challenging in cases when we need to transfer the data urgently. One another aspect where SharePoint lags is its GUI that is difficult to understand for a naive user . Also, if we send attachments through the SharePoint via a shareable link, SharePoint desktop app usually crashes if the attachment is too big in size (usually in GB's ).

“It gets the job done, but not in a fun or enjoyable way”

OverallSharePoint, in my opinion, is pretty OK. I would just as soon use DropBox or Google Documents to manage documents, but I think SharePoint is probably better for larger organizations with multiple moving parts. Again, I'm not sure if the problems I have with SharePoint are intrinsic SharePoint issues, or how my company set it up.
ProsSharePoint allows you to share files with you coworkers easily. If you need software that helps you stay organized, helps keep your remote team connected, and a way to keep project files documented, this software works. For us, we had a large number of team members working remotely, and from satellite offices around the US. Sharepoint helped keep project managers and administrators accountable, and helped us stay organized and on the same page. We were easily able to manage document flow, and everyone could find documents easily
ConsI don't know if this is a SharePoint problem, or how our IT administrators set up our SharePoint sites, but it was sometimes hard to navigate. There seemed to be endless dead-ends where you had to use the "back" browser button in order to navigate up folder levels. The features that allow you to edit Word / Excel documents in the browser never worked, and always ended up crashing. Also, the "social media" feature that allows you to post updates about what you are doing is really cheesy.

“A great addition to using Microsoft Office in the corporate world.”

Overall- Better file distribution & collaborative editing abilities - Pliable and user-friendly mobile user interface - File storage & document capabilities of a fortune 500 companies without huge implementation overhead
ProsOverall this software is the best for large-scale collaboration. A few of the things I like the most: - In-depth file & permission structures are possible - Easily integrates with nearly all Microsoft Office applications - Employees can easily be managed through one location instead of requiring API interface or multiple site permission/deletion work - Saves each iteration of a documents change, allows users to go back to the first iteration and view progressive changes & who made those changes - Usable mobile interface on all platforms - Online document edits for quick edits that need to take place - Groups can be established to assign multiple permissions to multiple users easily - Cloud storage is cheap and easily expandable - OneDrive app interfaces well & allows easy document upload/download for phones
Cons- Cloud-based version has frequent changes that sometimes induce bugs - Little support help outside of forums & slow to little Microsoft support help on those forums. - Uploaded videos cannot be played on all mobile platforms (currently) - Permissions has a learning curve & is a combination of the old structure and the new structure, which can lead to confusion when attempting to set granular non-inherited permissions

“SharePoint Online Has Limitations”

OverallLess complicated infrastructure management.
ProsSharePoint 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.
ConsUnlike 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.

“SharePoint Review”

OverallMy overall experience with SharePoint is that is a secure way to compile different documents for a project and only have them available for the people working on that project team. However, it is easily to overwrite someone else's work or get your own work overwritten or deleted without you knowing. You have to be very careful with what you are doing and you have to know how to navigate through the system; there is a slight learning curve.
ProsWhat I like most about this software is that the administrator can give access to only a select team in order to keep confidential files secure. Moreover, each member of the team can upload and download files in order to keep all documentation and notes in one spot for everyone to find.
ConsWhat I like least about this software is the search functionality is a bit broad, so it sometimes does not even narrow down the documents and you still have to look through several folders to fit the correct document. More so, it allows any member to overwrite files that another member uploaded without the other member knowing. Things tend to get accidentally overwritten or deleted due to this.

“Microsoft SharePoint Roadmap Innovation for Eager Business Owners”

OverallMicrosoft SharePoint restore eager business owners and innovative risk takers workforce agility across numerous Information Technology infrastructures. SharePoint is designed to help organize environment workflows and team agility. The software is sustainable and self directed with robotic approaches that encourage and inspire small business owner to leap forward with sustainable possiblities. The methodology is solid comprising professional development mirroring Software and System Full Life Cycle (SDLC) approaches. Personally, I feel Microsoft SharePoint roadmap future directives for business startups without much focus on the business owners. The software is powerful and supported by Microsoft team of qualified engineers; unlimited which help successful drive return of investment (ROI). I recommend the software to business owners to inspired and maintain a successful business environment with prime directives and strategies that secure profits within multidimentional industries.
ProsMicrosoft Sharepoint is the best software to build a business that capture future earnings, stakeholders attention, and professional dynamics advantages in social media while maintaining professional industries standards. I like the opportunities that can be built out to support and sustain any business environment.
ConsMicrosoft Sharepoint require more templates development; which support less experience project managers and project team leads. I think Microsoft should provide a team of qualified engineers that build out customer projects-request directly through Microsoft instead of encouraging third party vendors. This is a prime drawback for numerous small business owners and startups. The time it takes developing high-level templates to support and retain major corporate presence. This is a requirement which should be address by Microsoft. The major drawback for developing dynamic function templates often take to much time.
Recommendations to other buyersMy advice is to leap forward to Microsoft SharePoint if you want a dynamic and innovative future and presence. I advise you to establish a relationship with Microsoft Sharepoint Engineers. I have found they will support your requirements and maintain respectable presence for business success.

“Sharepoint getting better each year”

OverallOverall Sharepoint has met our needs over the years providing lists and repository features for our staff. Workflow features have helped a few teams streamline their processes.
ProsMS has been deploying improvements to sharepoint each year. Many of the interface improvements and feature adds has made administrating and using this product easier
ConsIn typical MS fashion, lots of non intuitive features that are discovered accidentally or by trial and error. Help for most features is lacking as is the norm with MS products in general.

“SharePoint Can Easily Elevate Efficiencies”

OverallI helped take a large Healthcare software organization from very inefficient workflow and employee scheduling methodologies, 2 seamless end-to-end workflows that manage everything from pre-sales to event completion and billing.
ProsI've been in SharePoint evangelist for many years dating back to the early 2000s. I've seen it drastically transform organizations from menial workflow tasks that place high demands on end-user time, turn into no hassle automation freeing up brain power for more productive tasks and organizational growth. The evolution of the platform has gone from fairly difficult interaction and Design, to simplified integration with skill sets already known throughout the Office Suite.
ConsQuite honestly my issues lie with Microsoft mentality that people should just use it because it's Microsoft instead of really pushing for industry acceptance, and counteracting the mentality of old Information Technology managers' inaccurate assumptions about security issues based on rumors not fact. It's very difficult to get management to buy into the idea that their workforce can benefit dramatically from deployment because they all think they know Microsoft products when they only use 10 to 20 percent of capabilities and think they are experts.

“Great Product for Team Work”

OverallWe have used this system for several key projects in the School of Education: 1) we use it for all policy documents for staff, faculty, and students (linked in separate "folders"); 2) we use it for research teams in the various departments/units within the School. Using it for the policy documents has been a bit difficult b/c a number of individuals are not technologically savvy enough to navigate comfortably in the system and they don't use it often enough to get comfortable so we have almost completely changed how we provide the links. Our teams, however, continue to use and flourish with this program and they are very comfortable with it. In addition, on occasion, we use it to store departmental faculty/staff search documents. B/c of the security levels this works well.
ProsA very powerful system for use with teams either within or outside an organization. Easy to use once you understand the system. Very flexible and easy to modify.
ConsBeing a very powerful system, it can be rather intimidating to new users. Unless you use it regularly I can be tricky to navigate to where you want to be.

“Needs to be updated to stay relevant.”

OverallAs a company that thrives on organization and sharing of information, SharePoint is a great starting point. However, I think there are better file sharing options currently on the market. Because our company has been using SharePoint since it launched in the early 2000's and we have over 1,000 employees using it currently, we are hesitant to look for other options. Nonetheless, many of our managers and executives are starting to see that SharePoint lacks some of the key features we are needing to run efficiently on a daily basis. If any company wishes to use SharePoint and keep it frequently updated, they need to invest in training a few employees to help maintain the software and its updates.
ProsThe best feature about SharePoint is its accessibility from an unlimited number of people. Our large corporation has all of our managers and executives setup and using SharePoint on a daily basis. It has allowed our 1,000+ users to access needed information and files from any computer that has internet access. This has been crucial to our company when it comes to getting out important information to our field managers.
ConsWhen uploading files to SharePoint or downloading files from SharePoint, you can only do one document at a time. This is incredibly frustrating when you have a large amount of documents that need to be uploaded. If SharePoint could update to include a "drag and drop" feature for file sharing, that would bring them up to par with other file sharing software. Also, updating the different sections and pages of SharePoint is not intuitive. If you do not have a vast knowledge of the software, it is difficult to learn and the instructional guides are not easy to follow.

“Very Useful for Businesses”

OverallIt provides access to employees from all departments to use one central location. This helps communicate information across the company without the hassle of constant emails and it allows you to access documents you made need without having to track down the keeper of the document.
ProsThe ability to access it from anywhere when signed into the company network. If not on the company network, I would be unable to access the company's SharePoint site which makes it more secure. I like that I can access just about everything I need to know about our company through the company's SharePoint site. It provides access to employees from all departments to use one central location. This helps communicate information across the company without the hassle of constant emails and it allows you to access documents you made need without having to track down the keeper of the document.
ConsI dislike the inability to access it easily from anywhere however this is what allows SharePoint to be more secure when publishing important and confidential documents for others in the company to access. Overall, the benefits definitely out weigh the dislike as this helps keep company information secure and not easy to access for others without permission.

“Simple and easy way of sharing documents/information with large groups”

OverallIn overall, I'm happy with SharePoint. Ms SharePoint is a simple and integrated tool that helps you manage your documents while keeping it safe from unauthorized uses. Recommended for your document safety and interaction with the groups.
ProsUsing Ms SharePoint is a very simple and easy way of managing documents. As known, it's a browser-based document management system. This makes the things easy for most of the users. You can access your data very easily and effectively. I use it in our company and interact with large groups globally inside our organization. Sharing information is easy. If you are the administrator of the sharing portal, it gives you to manage user accesses and rights/privileges easily. Interface is very close to Office applications, ribbons are similar. Advanced checkout process makes sure the safety. Users not require much training.
ConsIt would be better if social framework integration is possible. As social media is getting more space in our lives, this would help. At this point sure confidentiality need to be addressed so that social framework links does not cause any information spread. Another issue can be some issues with document storage if you are subject to use SQL Server.

“Sharepoint product review”

OverallIt saves time and increases communication within the organisation. It also unites the employees by providing a single platform for the management of documents. My organisation has been using SharePoint for 5 years and it has been always a great experience to use SharePoint.
ProsThis software manages documents well and provide efficient way to share the information within an organisation. With the use of sharepoint we can save our important documents at one place and all the employees of an organisation can access the document instantly, which saves time and cost. In SharePoint admin can give particular access to the users as per his requirement eg:- if employee A is working with finance in that scenario share point admin can give access of finance related documents to employee A rather than giving him access to all the documents managed by sharepoint . This option helps organisation to keep their data safe from any vulnerable condition.
ConsIt is recommended for large organisations as intial cost of setting up SharePoint intranet is high and it's not fruitful to use it for small organisation . SharePoint need to be customised before its implementation in a particular organisation and this customisation needs time .

“Collaborative Online Productivity Suite”

OverallSome other collaborative suites do not allow multiple people to edit a document simultaneously, though some competitors do. The biggest thing that stood out to me was that SharePoint provided this feature while using familiar software from the MS Office suite with almost full capability as the desktop application.
ProsTeams of people from all over the United States were able to work concurrently and collaboratively on living documents. The ability to work in the same MSWord or Excel document simultaneously is extremely valuable to our work. We've tried using other similar web-based platforms for collaborative work with interdisciplinary teams throughout the country, but none were as convenient, familiar, and user friendly as SharePoint.
ConsSome users on my team had experienced technical issues when navigating through nested files, where it would sometimes lead to an IT error message - forcing them to refresh the page and dig back through the file tree to get back to where they were. This was more of an inconvenience than a serious drawback, as it only happened to some users, through they told me it was somewhat frequent. Other users on my team never experienced the issue, so I wouldn't be quick to blame it on SharePoint.

“Good product if you are a Power User”

OverallOur company started using sharepoint to catalog and share information. The main frustration I have had is the ability to find documents. It may be the way our management has chosen to catalog them, but in order to find a certain document, we pretty much have to know the name of the document or plan to look through pages and pages of documents when using a keyword search. Another issue we have experienced with Sharepoint is a number of documents that are saved and the order they appear in the search. I never know if I am getting the most recent version or a previous version that someone forgot to remove or replace. When I search for a document, there is no order in the way the search results are listed. I don't know if the documents are showing by latest date first, or most relevant, or most popular or just in a random order. Again, this makes it difficult to find the most recent document- or be assured that I am using the most recent. Other than that, we have found that Sharepoint is a quick way to share lots of information and then save it for later use. After some training, colleagues and I discovered all the cool, very usable features that Sharepoint has. The only trouble is, our management has very few power users so all those cool features are useless to those who use Sharepoint the most. Another great feature is the ability to really "personalize" the look of Sharepoint. My department has a very simple design with a department calendar, link to announcements and links to other important pages, and a keyword search. I have seen other departments in the organization that has very detailed (and it looks like much more useful) pages with search, a well-planned left-hand menu, and graphical links to other important reports or document libraries. I am pretty tech savvy, so once I received access to Sharepoint, I was able to get in and use it as far as my permissions allowed without any training.
ProsLittle or no training required to use if you have technical ability.
ConsIf you are not a power user, your ability to add will be very limited.
Recommendations to other buyersThose who set up their division or company site should really have the everyday users design the layout and content management. Often those who set it up are the casual users, not the everyday users. There is a big difference.

“Enterprise productivity in a university setting.”

OverallWorldwide collaborative ability, and great workflows that ensure consistency in common processess.
ProsIt 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.
ConsIf 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.

“Easy way to manage files, and the flow of the data.”

OverallThe main issue was that the files where all scattered between the team members' computer, and a shared network folder, which sometimes causes errors when updating the files. With Sharepoint, that issue never occurs.
ProsIncredibly easy to use, it allows us to connect different teams and provide a hub where all the files and data can be managed together.
ConsThe configuration screens are not exactly user-friendly, however, since this is supposed to be configured by someone who knows at least some context of the app, it can be overlooked.

“Using Sharepoint for Internal Teams”

Overall- Our corporation uses this for sharing and storing files in a secure manner . Our team are remote in general with few people working out of the home office. Overall my primary takeaway is the loading and sharing process is slower and more cumbersome to using applications like dropbox. Overall the file management part of the program is clunky and I'm not sure if that's because Sharepoint isn't really meant for this or if our organization IT is slow.
Pros- Based on the Microsoft Platform (similar style and format) - Good GUI and graphics
Cons- Slow to upload files - Slow to add new folders - If you are disconnected from the cloud you can't get access to your documents

“Great collaboration tool for your intranet”

ProsSharepoint allows for the easy storage, management, and sharing of information within your company. It is more than just your basic configuration management tool as it integrates flawlessly with other Microsoft products such as Word, Excel, Powerpoint, etc. You could have multiple people working on the same document and modifications sync up and can merge with each other. The Cloud based feature of it allows you to access documents remotely from your mobile device, which can be very convenient. Over the years, the interface has become visually more appealing and easier to use and navigate.
ConsThere are certainly other collaboration tools available in the market that compete with Sharepoint and are in many ways better than it in my experience. There are many options and features and it is not always straightforward on how to use them, so there's a bit of a learning curve for new users. I wish permissions could be set up such that managers or team leads had elevated levels of control, not as high as IT obviously but more than regular users. Every time one of our team members leaves, there would always be files locked by that person, and it just gets annoying to have to have IT unlock it for us every time.

OverallI'm using SharePoint for more than 3 years now, and it is the main tool in my Company, I edit view and share SharePoint pages daily, where all our procedures and documentation are stored.
ProsIf you work at a company that owns Office 365 Subscription you have got to try SharePoint out. This is a great Knowledge-Base tool that can help you store, keep track of and share all your important Documents/Procedures/Files etc.. SharePoint is very powerful tool, it allows you to set access level and permissions for any page you have on your SharePoint, and even you can Synchronize it with OneDrive making all your Documents available offline on your dedicated device. SharePoint is simple to use, and simple to create any sort of page where you want to store your important documents and it is very customizable, so you can make every SharePoint page stand out from the other and be unique in it's own way.
ConsSharePoint is very Customizable and you can do almost anything with it, but the Con would be that there is not that much of a templates to use, so you will have to start your page from scratch.

“Great Power Requires a Deep Learning Curve”

OverallSharepoint's versatility as a document management and storage tool addresses many needs across the organization. There's site building, communities, analytics and a host of other capabilities that far exceed my objectives and knowledge. Which is the biggest issue that I have: I know what my objective is and I know what I need to do but the learning curve is very high for even the most basic of functions. I understand that creating dashboards and pages according to the Sharepoint paradigm requires some reasonable amount of research and learning, but processes such as checking out documents to edit and editing permissions to objects should be more clear and intuitive. In addition, it may not come as a suprise, but be sure to use Internet Explorer when using Sharepoint; certain features will simply not work in other browsers. Be prepared to do your homework when you need to complete a project using the tool. You'll get there, but it may take more time than you originally expected.
ProsPowerful and versatile tool that address a variety of intranet site building and document management needs.
ConsHigh learning curve. Not very intuitive. Basic functions and navigation should be simpler.
Recommendations to other buyersIf you're already invested into the Microsoft ecosystem then Sharepoint makes a lot of sense. I would also recommend looking into the Google suite of applications.

“Microsoft SharePoint - It's more than just your company's internal website.”

OverallWe have SharePoint Foundation installed and in use in our main office. It was a free offering from Microsoft, and while it has some limitations, it's been a great addition to our company's assets. We have several sites site up, one for each project team, and a main company site where we use a shared company calendar, document repository, company project management, employee telephone directory, and training resources. Several of the customers we provide technical support for also use SharePoint in their businesses, with varying levels of customization.
ProsI like the granular level of customization and bolt on third party apps and templates that are available and add nearly unlimited functionality to the SharePoint platform. I like that it can be accessible from within or outside of, a company's internal domain, and that which areas of Sharepoint a user can see and access is controled through differing levels of security.
ConsIf you don't understand the basics of web development and Internet Information Services (IIS), building SharePoint Site's, lists, repositories and administering the back end will have a learning curve.

“A perfect document management and collaboration software.”

OverallGenerally my overall experience with Sharepoint has been superb and excellent.
ProsOn the greatest thing i like about Sharepoint is that it provides me with a simple, familiar and consistent user experience thus simplifying how i interact with my documents and content during management process. Another great thing is that Sharepiont has efficient collaboration features that allows me to collaborate with fellow team mates during a project hence speeding up project completion time. It also promotes productivity in my organisation since the knowledge of each member flows freely within the organisation. I also like the fact that Sharepoint meets consumers choice by allowing me to change and specify on security settings, storage and auditing policies to those ones that i feel will best meet my organisation needs.
ConsI feel that the very many built in features are more than enough making it difficult for one to choose which ones will best meet organisation needs.

“SharePoint - Collaboration and Sharing made easy”

OverallSharePoint enabled us to create an Intranet which made collaboration and sharing possible and took content management to another level with super simple organization, boosting the company's productivity, creativity and transformed our business processes.
ProsSharePoint is super popular for its' collaboration and sharing capabilities, which is a game changer in today's workforce. It is not a desktop application that is installed locally, but instead, it is a storage server that is accessible via your browser using any PC, mobile device or a tablet. One of its' key feature is the ability to create websites or team sites which enables teams to work together by storing and saving necessary documents, find whatever information maybe required and many more. Another one being its' content control and/or version control, making data easily accessible with one source. Also, SharePoint has an awesome search feature that allows you to effectively search within all the contents you have created. Last but not least, it has a super handy recycle bin features for those days when life happened.
ConsNo cons at the moment, just an awesome top of the line saas.

“Sharepoint is excellent, especially for new hires”

OverallOverall it has been fantastic to keep knowledge across both mechanical and electrical in one place for reference for all in both teams. Especially for newer employees.
ProsWhat is really great about SharePoint is it makes it easy to put all of the accumulated knowledge and documentation in one place. This has been especially useful when we have new hires. When only a handful of us have been here for a decade or more, we have found it can be difficult to bring new hires up to speed. Especially as we didn't have any formal training documents in the past. With SharePoint we are able to continually add information and documentation to one place that everyone can use as a reference.
ConsI'm sure it is more of there simply being so much information now, that it can be difficult to find something specific you are looking for if you don't know 'exactly' what it is you are looking for. But again, I'm sure we can find a better way to organize everything, rather than this being an issue with the product.

“Repository for the Microsoft-centric workplace”

OverallMicrosoft-centric common repository platform for our small to medium-sized business. Easy export to doc, excel for the tables and fields you put into the site. Easy enough to setup, and manage users and accesses.
ProsWe have a long-standing partnership with Microsoft. Our workflow involves Microsoft products (MS Office, Great Planes, etc) and so we needed a repository platform that can put all our Microsoft centric archives and files into one place. SharePoint to the rescue. We used Sharepoint initially just for archiving purposes (i.e., creating folders and saving our *.doc, *.xls...). We then extended it use for keeping a common calendar, creating team spaces for Projects, and even using the messaging and poll functions. Workplace is able to create a micro-site that is easily exportable into an Excel file for reporting and data analytics purposes.
ConsThe subscription comes with a hefty price (esp for a bigger user base). Some users (even administrators) feel that the app is clunky and heavy on the backend.

“Best one stop shop portal for all the business flow system allows you to manage work flow like CRM”

ProsBest document and management tool that handles bundles of the business flows and its collaboration activities.It's basically an intranet and content management system that is used for internal purposes to assist us in bringing our organisation together.Happy news is 70% of the MNC's in fortune 500 companies use this as it has flexible options to organize and has large space to upload the data. Enterprise business uses this sharepoint as means of communication in delivering the request. on an whole this is one of the best tool i have seen and was loving using it. In this we can store large amount of the data, organisation structural policies updates to employees and real time business flows documents has highlevel of security provided by microsoft.
ConsThe least about the software is its structure though it is secure and robust it requires small changes in the options panel and hide the unwanted link options in the header bar. UI part requires changes make it colorful

“In case you use Microsoft products... ”

OverallIt's a good product, but before you make the decision to purchase it, consult with someone who has used it for the reasons you want to use them (file storage, collaboration, websites, etc.) It's not cheap and it might be a waste of money. We wanted to streamline the progress of working with files submitted by our Chamber members, which is why we united our website and a files storage. We also had two separate storages - one for internal documents that needed to be secure, and a public one, where we had files for our members. It worked, but it was not the easiest thing to use, so we kept the internal storage, but not the public website.
ProsIt's quite powerful, but like most of Microsoft products, it sometimes feels like it has too many available features and it's easy to get lost. The main thing we liked about SharePoint was the documents, search, and web site options. Our goal was to recreate our corporate website, where people (Chamber members) can upload various documents, for example, application to become a member, and the files would automatically save in the required folder, where the staff can easily access it without having to resave it from emails.
ConsIt's certainly not the easiest thing to use. We had a corporate Microsoft 360 account, and so we decided to use SharePoint for the corporate collaboration for documents and then went for a website. I can't say it was a disaster, but it was definitely not something that was the most user-friendly interface.

“Makes Project Collaboration a Breeze”

OverallGroup projects are completed with less frustration and everyone is able to get their input on every aspect of a project. This program is the definition of "team work".
ProsThere is so many features to make group collaborations on a project smooth. There is direct messaging to discuss individually with a team member. Having share-able links is a huge plus for those who don't have the software to view the progress. You can see who is typing what in what section and see trends. It make remote group work possible in one interface. It integrates with other Microsoft products such as the commonly used Excel, Word, and PowerPoint. You can chat as well as get progress done on the project. It is much smoother and simpler than sending documents back and forth, so everyone can see what has happened.
ConsThere is a learning curve in getting familiar with the software and how to use it's features effectively. The big con is that it does take up a lot of computing space, so it can appear glitchy or laggy when being used. This is because of the sheer power and capabilities and the connection from so many sources. Great features, could be smoother while using. When sharing the link for others to view or join in, when they do not have the software there is more hoops to jump through to be able to actually contribute.

“SharePoint - Feature rich, but very expensive and costly to maintain and implement”

OverallAfter using SharePoint On-Prem for a few years now, if I had to go back and do it over, I would have chosen a different product for document storage and collaboration. Plan and map out your business needs before jumping into a SharePoint implementation.
ProsSharePoint is very feature rich. Many people run websites, internal and external using SharePoint, and utilize it as a basis to collaborate within their organizations. It has it's own search services, as well as tie ins to active directory. It can be a one-stop shop for organizations for a repository or intranet.
ConsSharePoint (On-prem) is very difficult to implement and plan out. If jumping from version to versions, there are sometimes limited to no migration paths as well, making a migration very difficult. Licensing for On-Prem is extremely costly, and not in the budget range for most small businesses. Ongoing maintenance and general administration of SharePoint alone can be a full time job for more than 1 individual depending on the build out and use.

“Excellent place to collaborate on team documents”

ProsProbably the best part about Sharepoint is its seamless integration with all the standard Microsoft software such as Word, Powerpoint and Excel. It's so nice being able to have multiple people on a team all working on a single document at the same time, whether it's through the online interface or through desktop-based software. The customizability of Sharepoint is also a strength. With some experience, it's easy to create dynamic, engaging web spaces for teams to utilize for storing and accessing information.
ConsCustomizing Sharepoint sites definitely takes some experience and users can be overwhelmed by available features. This can be overcome by training and governance, as long as you set up the right user rules. The worst part about Sharepoint is related to the web-based versions of the Microsoft office suite. Online Excel, Word and Powerpoint don't hold a candle to the desktop versions so users rarely work from the Sharepoint docs directly online.

“Ideal solution but difficult to configure”

OverallProvides housing for our intranet portal to end-users and cloud storage for a number of internal workflows.
ProsThere are so many features and customization options inside of SharePoint that it would be seemingly impossible to ever list out everything you could do with it. Probably the best thing about it though is that it is a Microsoft product, which nearly instantly makes it an industry standard because it has integration with almost all other Microsoft products (most of which truly are industry standards like the Office Suite).
ConsIt is easy to get lost in SharePoint. You may want to create a workflow for example that requires a document to be passed along and approved by different users, but you will read documentation on how to do it and there will be 20 different ways to skin the cat. If you can figure it out then you will be a hero in your organization and everyone will love it, but the hardest thing is figuring out how to do it and sometimes even where to start.

“Files finally moved off premise and into the cloud”

OverallIf we had to do it over again we would have hired a professional for the initial setup portion. Without proper knowledge, or time to go through training, it can be difficult to configure.
ProsFor the most part, the process of moving data up into SharePoint is fairly easy. The initial setup is the biggest challenge and requires the most time. Coupled with Microsoft Teams, SharePoint becomes more of the back end, which in my opinion, is a good thing. With Windows 10, you can also map SharePoint libraries directly to file explorer for easier access.
ConsUnless implemented properly, or by a professional who works with SharePoint regularly, the interface can be clunky and hard to navigate. We attempted this mostly ourselves, and there was a huge learning curve. Most of our users were reluctant to use SharePoint because of our interface. What saved us was Microsoft Teams. Teams uses SharePoint on the back end for the data storage. It created a fresh and easy to use interface.

“Share it safely with anyone”

ProsI love the fact that I know my data is backed up and available to me from anywhere. I can also share and collaborate with anyone quickly and efficiently. Multiple people using a document at once is wonderful.
ConsGetting started can be a bit confusing and frustrating. It is not as user friendly as I think it could be.
