Pros: This 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.

Cons: It 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.

Overall: I'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.

Comments: I know some larger companies rely heavily on Sharepoint, but they can afford to have high-level IT programmers and developers to manage a Sharepoint farm. Our migration from 2007-2010 cost us 5 years ago and in spite of getting some hands-on guidance to redesign some of the data entry forms/types to suit our needs, I wasn't able to pick this application up and run with it like I can with others. Infopath was supposed to help w/the forms, but then I saw MS was dropping it in more recent editions. We got Sharepoint as part of our O365 upgrade, but in trying to set it up as just a collaboration repository/staff intranet site, I realized I was going to have to make a significant investment of time and found support from our O365 provider and our IT managed services provider VERY lacking. We already moved on to another application for managing work orders and projects, so I think there's a much simpler "Intranet" tool out there that will be much easier, cost-effective, and flexible for us to manage for the limited needs we have for it now.

Pros: Part of the Office platform and integrates with other MS apps. Offers somewhat simple setup to build a collaborative space.

Cons: Requires a specialized and expensive vendor to truly manage and ensure security of the environment. We used it for work orders between departments, but alerting was not ideal -- duplicate alerts triggered by setting alerts to fire under different circumstances. We've used SP since about 2007 and I've built lists and integrated it with a database and a couple of 3rd party applications built to work with it. I'm pretty much self-taught in all network and user applications (Windows server/AD, Exchange, and MS power user), but I struggled with trying to set up custom forms and found some of the lists inflexible. For example, my HR "portal" had to be set up as separate lists based on what Sharepoint would allow -- one that allowed me to upload documents, another to manage URL/links to external sites.

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.

Cons: A 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.

Comments: If you are small organization, always prefer SharePoint Online services and SharePoint on-premise is recommended for big organization usually.

Pros: 1. 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.

Cons: 1. 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!

Pros: Instant 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.

Cons: Customization 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

Overall: Sharepoint 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

Comments: Sharepoint has been a great product for many common document editing and sharing functions for some time. It has, however, fallen short in value when it is used as a common tool across a large enterprise that has security or policy restrictions that are other than very simplistic. Where I've seen the tool fall short most often is with the provisioning so that it is easy for users (project managers) to quickly set up a site for a project and have the necessary freedom to construct their site to maximize the benefits of the tool. Frequently, basic features of sharepoint sites have been unavailable to users because they do not have the "administrator" privileges necessary to configure things they desire. I'm not talking about deep levels of configuration like writing custom widgets or anything near that complex. I'm referring to things as fundamental as managing access to the site and changing policies on a given directory for the users or even being able to delete/modify directory contents within a project manager's own site. I attribute this to two things: 1) the policies of the group using it and 2) the granularity and flexibility of sharepoint to define and implement roles within the tool. If the role configuration was more straightforward i think that organizations would have greater success in implementing it. Time and time again i have had sharepoint issues that result from "admin role" issues. There seems to be user, admin, and not much else for user roles in my experience. I've seen this across at least four different enterprises now as well so i believe it's likely a microsoft implementation problem more than an organizational issue with how sharepoint is deployed.

Pros: great for managing microsoft office documents for collaboration. easy to navigate most features and tools within the product.

Cons: cumbersome to do some basic tasks like migrate files into/out of a sharepoint site. some of the basic admin things often seem a bit 'awkward' to find and manage (e.g. a particular directory's location in the sharepoint server space). several features for site management are not intuitive and everything seems to look the same so it's hard to recognize one location in a site from another with vastly different controls.

Recommendations to other buyers: for fast and easy collaboration the atlassian suite of developer tools seems to offer more user friendly features than the microsoft sharepoint suite. it's not witout it's limitations but for flexibility it seems much easier than sharepoint for many common tasks. the document management does not seem as robust as sharepoint (e.g. managing a Word file that multiple people are contributing to).

Pros: I 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.

Cons: If 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.

Overall: A wealth of experience in working with intranet communities. I found this to be invaluable as I went on to create my own online communities.

Pros: Easy 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.

Cons: SharePoint 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.

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.

Pros: I 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.

Cons: Due 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.

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.

Pros: Overall 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

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

Comments: Microsoft 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.

Pros: Microsoft 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.

Cons: Microsoft 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 buyers: My 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.

Comments: SharePoint is an incredibly powerful piece of software, however, to get the most out of it requires a lot of technical understanding and time to configure it properly. It can be a bit clunky to use, things are sometimes in places that you wouldn't expect them to be. Not sure about SharePoint Online, however SharePoint on-premise is very expensive and those who use the support forums often only refer to the Online version and can lack the knowledge to fix issues with the on-premise solution.

Pros: Great for assisting in the management of projects in one place. Workflows and automations make my life so much easier. Absolutely loads of apps to add to your SharePoint instance. Teamsites make group collaboration so much easier especially within a large organisation with the ability to create project sites, document libraries, and custom lists to store and display near enough all you need. Granting and restricting permissions is fairly straightforward. Lots of online forums for support, monitored by Microsoft employees who often respond to queries posted by users, as well as other SharePoint experts who use the product daily.

Cons: To get the most out of it requires more than just a novice's understanding of IT, configuration is best left to the experts. SharePoint Designer is great but also requires a level of knowledge that would leave the management of it solely within the IT department's domain. There are quite a few things that feel like they should be OOB functionalities with SharePoint but are actually quite complex to configure, often requiring some kind of PowerShell or JavaScript solution; for example, automating workflows requires a PowerShell script.

Comments: Our 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.

Pros: Little or no training required to use if you have technical ability.

Cons: If you are not a power user, your ability to add will be very limited.

Recommendations to other buyers: Those 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.

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: Sharepoint allows me to move easily from using static word documents and the like to the flexibility, security, and convenience of a cloud-based system. I have stored large amounts of data and can easily access what i need from a mobile device or wherever I happen to be. Being able to do this using familiar microsoft tools such as powerpoint and word without transitioning to a new system was key in easy adoption of this tool.

Cons: Ironically, "sharepoint" is difficult to share. I work at an institution that has adopted the enterprise version of this software, so within organization I can share documents and the like relatively easily. However, sharing outside of the organization is unpredictable. Frankly, for a cloud-based tool, this lack of portability is unacceptable. Furthermore, backend settings within sharepoint seem to change without warning, and i have had students unable to access resources hosted in sharepoint inconsistently over the course of a semester, which was incredibly discouraging. I find myself most often turning to Google since i know that it will work reliably.

Pros: Powerful and versatile tool that address a variety of intranet site building and document management needs.

Cons: High learning curve. Not very intuitive. Basic functions and navigation should be simpler.

Overall: Sharepoint'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.

Recommendations to other buyers: If 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.

Pros: If 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.

Cons: SharePoint 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.

Overall: I'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.

Pros: We've been using SharePoint as part of our Microsoft 365 bundle. We've used DropBox before, however, since upgrading to 1 TB in DropBox is very expensive, we decided to migrate our office-sharing via SharePoint.

It is easy to use. Since we use powerpoint and word in creating our candidate slides and project presentation, which are operated by Microsoft editing such files is easy and fast as compared to DropBox.

It is easy as well to upload a single file from your computer to SharePoint because it is fast and you just need to click and drag. It also helps uplift collaboration in the office, because you can add the calendar and everyone can work together to create a single task quickly.

The email regarding updates on how to use and maximize SharePoint you get from time to time is also very helpful.

Cons: What I least like about SharePoint is that it is hard to sync folders with large files. It is also hard to share to people who doesn't have Microsoft 365 or outlook account. Using the web version is easy but syncing and making the desktop version up to date can take a lot of time.

Overall: We've been using SharePoint for ~1 year now, and weaning us from DropBox is easy. The app itself is easy to use, plus it being a bundle of our Microsoft 365 subscription is a great plus. We can enjoy 1 TB of data space without worrying to pay much for an additional cost from another app.

Pros: Best 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.

Cons: The 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

Pros: We 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.

Cons: The 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.

Overall: Microsoft-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.

Pros: There 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).

Cons: It 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.

Overall: Provides housing for our intranet portal to end-users and cloud storage for a number of internal workflows.

Pros: Everything starts with SharePoint, you can make SharePoint page look beautiful, more beautiful then 90% of website pages out there on the web.

It is easy to use, everything is self-explanatory, on SharePoint you should have all the important documentations uploaded, as well as news and updated about your project.

Another great thing is that you can Synchronize all your SharePoint files with OneDrive and have them offline if needed or just to have quickly access to them.

Not to mention FileHistory option, where you can revert any Change mistakenly made, and you can set for how many changes backwards you would be able to revert them.

Cons: I really cant find any bad side of SharePoint. Maybe downside would be that there is no SharePoint for personal but just for business use.

Overall: You can easily share important documentation, just by sharing links to people within your organization, or giving them access and edit options to your SharePoint pages.

Familiar interface for MS Office users.

Integration with other Office 365 apps like OneDrive, OneNote, and Outlook.

Multiple document libraries per team site allows for flexible taxonomies.

Content Types and Site Columns allow for metadata classification.

Cloud versions of the office suite allow simultaneous multiple authoring of business content in the cloud.

Cloud-based means access anywhere from any device.

Cons: The records management functionality of existing document library content remains on a per team site basis rather than from a central administration dashboard.

Each new modern UI team and communication site is its own collection but does not appear in the list of collections on the SharePoint admin panel.

Overall: SharePoint in the cloud is a centralized location for all of our organizational content. Access is available anywhere from any device this makes the platform very useful and flexible for users.

Pros: SharePoint offers a number of options for users in our office to access shared documents that contain outlines of essential work procedures and template emails that are consistently used on a daily basis. This software has truly opened doors between not just our office, but other offices that we collaborate with. These connections have facilitated financial data sharing and report generation, which is particularly essential towards the end of our fiscal year.

Cons: At least as SharePoint is offered in our office, it only presents a limited number of accessibility options for the general staff to edit. A select number of users are granted access to change the appearance of the SharePoint site, and these same users control which sharing capabilities are exposed to the staff, which can limit the usability of the software. However, this is less of a software issue and more of a problem with our end of the equation.

Comments: It is great that this can be tied into your current Office Suite of products.

Pros: This product has come a long way in the recent years. It is very robust, can handle a lot of data, items, and users. Permission control is great, along with being able to access it anywhere you have internet is great also. It has enabled me to be very fluid with my location, yet still able to perform the work needed. Being able to "check out" a document to work on it is a great control point in my opinion. I can use it for many different products that I am involved in, and grant access to users outside of the organization, that do not have SharePoint.

Cons: The online edit seems to overwrite changes that other users are doing at the same time. Although it seems to me that you should be able to have multiple users edit a doc at once (the permissions let you), I have not had much success. I lost all of my work doing so. It could be user error.

Pros: Sharepoint has become an incredibly useful part of my work space, especially since I have a need to share large amounts of files and photographs among colleagues. Before using it, we swapped hard drives and sent zipped email folders, both of which were incredibly time consuming and annoying. Sharepoint let us share these files quickly and made them easy to view. It is definitely worth it if you have a need to store lots of data and have many people access it.

Cons: Some issues with Sharepoint are that it seems to load slightly slow, and it could use some upgrades to the file uploading portion of it. When I use it I have to drag and drop multiple files from my computer to upload them, which is a pain. I am not sure if they have a better way to upload them, but I cannot find it if they do. Additionally, some of the features seem to be harder to use and understand, and it can take a little bit more work to learn than other software. None of these issues are dealbreakers, as the pros outweigh the cons, but it is clear that they could tune up a few of the interface issues that plague everyday users.

Overall: I was able to share files with colleagues much easier than before, and it made viewing access and downloading significantly easier for our whole group.

Pros: Each department has their own sharepoint log in, to keep everyone in the loop with any changes and updates that has to be implemented per department or team.

My team handles incoming calls. However i'm also crossed trained to make outgoing calls and handle emails. Depending on the business needs. I have access to their respective files so i can easily take that initiative to research on new updates. We even have self training materials for new handling details for different departments that i'm involved with. Updates are always real time and definitely easy access. And since it's a closed sharing program, security is also covered. So your target audience are the only one who can access the files.

Cons: I am not a part of the team who Initially pitched for the idea to use Sharepoint. It's already on going when i joined. But even though i have no hand in the initial set up. I know that the customization is labor intensive, specially since different departments has different needs and points to highlight. So every time we experience latency, unable to update error or blocked access, Our development team takes care of it. And they can fix it relatively fast.

Overall: We use sharepoint to communicate updates across all members per department.

Pros: What I appreciate most about SharePoint is the the organization it allows. It makes internal file sharing easy as everything can be organized and grouped however necessary. Individuals can be granted access to only what they need to be.

Cons: Collaboration still seems to be in beta mode in a way. On occasion when my site team is frequenting the same file it will tell us it is not accessible because someone is using it. This will even happen if someone is using it online only but it may also happen if someone downloads the file and then saves it and closes it. Also, there needs to be a way to see images in a thumbnail setting as opposed to a list view. It is difficult to quickly scan image files in a folder without opening them each.

Overall: I use this software for file sharing with my company internally. We can share files with anyone who has access to the folders our site uses. We also do some minor collaboration among my site team on these files.

Pros: You really can't blame Sharepoint for not trying. It has nearly all the features one could wish for to manage a team's assets and communication. Very useful if you use Microsoft Office products (especially Office 365) extensively. In short, the communication features (email, Teams, etc) work quite well.

Cons: Sharepoint is extremely unintuitive to use. It's somewhat understandable considering the amount of features, but you really need to study the software in depth before you can be productive with it. Not a problem if you have a big IT department that can configure the installation according to your wishes but for smaller teams there are better alternatives. The Intranet part of the software is really from another bygone era.

Overall: Sharepoint has an excellent collection of tools for communication and collaboration. We use it as a file repository, calendar, sharing stuff... The software works well but requires much time and effort to master.

Pros: Microsoft SharePoint is an application that I use in my workplace to upload, share, and edit documents within my team and Team Leads; SharePoint allows me to quickly upload a file, and in minutes out team members within my group can view, change, and edit the document. We have BI software and we are constantly creating documentation in order for our clients to easily navigate through the web application. SharePoint allows me to quickly view the files, and applications straight from my mobile phone, it is one of the best collaborative work space to transfer knowledge, ideas, and etc. Moreover, MS SharePoint enables me to manage my workflow easily, which i can create diagrams of how a specific change in the software will be developed, tested and released.

Cons: One of the major downside of using MS SharePoint is that i cannot connect multiple accounts; If i wanted to connect my personal SharePoint account with my work account it will not connect, i have looked for an alternate way for this over the web and sadly couldn't find one.

Overall: With SharePoint, the main benefit I get using it, is to manage my daily workflow and easily upload, share, edit.,and collaborate files and applications within my team.

Pros: Microsoft sharepoint online is available on premise and on the cloud.Microsoft SharePoint lets you set up team websites, track projects, and manage documents. Sharepoint has features like site metrics viz page visits ,popular documents etc, which come in handy.

The drag and drop works at its best in sharepoint.

When one creates a website, one can add a variety of features to customize ones team site including tasks, calendar, document libraries, mailbox , bulletin boards, and contacts. One can also personalize the layout and color scheme of ones site and add ones company's logo.

Microsoft has made an iOS app available for sharepoint. Similarly android and windows phone apps will be available soon.

Cons: For basic no frills document management there are many economical tools available in the market.

Sharepoint is for enterprise level customers.

Comments: SharePoint has been a good change for our company. You can now track the history of a document, attach metadata for easy storing and searching, you can see who is working on the document. There is ability to set alerts and add an expiration to a document. The approval system is a nice function.

Pros: You can attach several different metadata to one document and search multiple ways. It makes storing and searching for documents much easier.

Cons: Understanding the terminology and navigating changes is difficult to start. Once you get the hang of it, then its better, but its not as intuitive as it probably could be. Every time you edit metadata for a document, it reverts the document back to draft mode, which creates additional steps to reapprove the document. It makes sense that if you change the document, then you need to put it back through a workflow, but if you are just editing metadata for searching purposes, then the document should stay approved.

Pros: This software is massive. If you're a developer, there is a lot to do to set this up in a way that a business can effectively use in a meaningful way. When you are developing for it, there are really so many options and so many softwares to integrate with - it shines when integrating with Dynamics and Office as an example. When it's at its best, Sharepoint is the hub for your company's day to day tasks and meetings. Customer support is solid, they really want to make sure this software is also supported, which is evident by how much better every version of sharepoint becomes. When developing, there is also a healthy library of plugins to extend sharepoint even further.

Cons: It is not easy as a learning curve, and even after you learn it, it is still required to have knowledge and strategic planning to roll an install out in a way that the user-base will embrace. Because of this, when it isn't firing on all cylinders, there are better things that users can and will use for every aspect of sharepoint. Small businesses will also not get the full benefit of this software - a lot of the aspects of sharepoint really shine when there are teams of people interacting in different spaces.

Pros: I have been incorporating MS SharePoint for an extended duration to perform several tasks at workstation. I like how it is simple to create a new directory without getting comprehensive training. In addition, MS SharePoint is available as both on-premise and cloud-based solution. With a cloud-based solution, I am in a better situation to organize organization documents from anywhere provided there is stable cloud computing. In our corporation, we integrated SharePoint on-premise to meet all the needs since it is a large business.

Cons: High license cost per user is the only drawback so far that get associated with SharePoint. Microsoft should reduce the cost estimation of getting genuine SharePoint to ensure that it emerges the best platform on the market.

Overall: This platform has enabled us to save a lot of organization data since it allocates extensive storage.

Pros: it integrates perfectly in the Office platform. Companies can build their Intranets using sharepoint and provision workspaces where users can consume or share information. As most companies already use Microsoft products in the office productivity segment (Outlook, Word, Excel, and so on), using sharepoint becomes the natural extension to those apps. Sharing documents will be easy when Sharepoint is added as a repository. it extends filesharing beyond the classic fileserver functionalities.

Cons: being more feature reach in comparison to a file server, sharepoint is also more complex and as an IT Administrator I have seen over the last decade, in various occasions, at times cryptic error messages which can be very demandig to solve.

Overall: collaboration and integration in all Office applications which are already in use in the company. a great platform for the Intranet.

Pros: The software is great for much of what we use it for. We use it as a tool to communicate with our sales representatives in the field. They are able to easily access Word documents, PowerPoint presentations, and Excel spreadsheets. Additionally, it integrates well with many other file types. You can also easily limit who has access to what files, their editing capabilities, etc. through group or individual management. I personally, really enjoyed the ability to create different web pages within the software so that we were able to send links to different customers for them to view, without even having them set up an account. This was extremely helpful when launching new products, rather then sending them samples. It was very cost effective for us.

Cons: It does take a while to learn how to use the software to its full capabilities. We spent a couple of months testing it in different ways before introducing it to our team members. Aside from that it is a great product!

Pros: To begin with, I like everything about SharePoint-from design all the way to interface. For that reason, SharePoint is a user-friendly software since it has a simple interface. That way, you only need to get the right tutorials or training in order to work like a pro with it. SharePoint is one of the best collaboration tool that we incorporate in our agency. With SharePoint it is easy to have slide shows and web sharing. That way, it is easy to share files within our corporation. Last but not least, I like SharePoint since it integrates with other vital platforms that we incorporate at workplace.

Cons: So far the only issue that I have is pricing. Microsoft should offer SharePoint at a favorable cost estimation to entice prospective customers.

Overall: 1. Better file distribution

2. Collaborative editing capabilities

3. File storage and sharing

Pros: 1) As a functional user, SharePoint is a great softeare to share files and manage them.

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.

Pros: Sharepoint is a helpful tool to work on shared documents with colleagues, and to store files in one easily accessible location for all staff to access. We use the Excel workbook feature daily among our youth organization administrative staff, to track a lot of student and family data.

Cons: When editing in the Excel online browser version, a number of formula features are missing that we can only access by editing in Excel software. This has caused errors when multiple people are trying to add data at the same time. I have seen various upgrades over the last year or so, and the system is slowly catching up to the efficiency and functionality of Google sheets. Unfortunately, we have had various outages in the system where employees cannot access certain Excel workbooks for days at a time. It seems to be a system error, and our IT team has not been able to solve this issue.

Overall: We are able to easily store and access files in one shared location. We can co-edit Excel workbooks in real time.

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.

Pros: Easy installation. Nice user interface. Close integration with Microsoft products. Sharing files is very simple, as well as supported file versioning, files can be viewed online without downloading them. Pleased granulated control of access to files and directories, which allows you to share information not only between employees of the company, as well as with its direct partners. Easy creation of new sites.

Cons: Not compatible with all browsers, you can feel the lag when working in the browser. The built-in search engine is not very good. Some errors are not quite informative. It is not easy to get started, you need in-depth knowledge, which is accompanied by reading quite a large part of the documentation or training.

Overall: It is an excellent solution for storing documentation and accompanying files of the company.

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.

We use SharePoint to house our company documents and to allow document sharing.

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: SharePoint is my favorite platform for sharing information with internal business units. It allows everything from calendars, to digital asset and document management. While managing information for two separate companies I had the privilege of using this platform and it was wonderful. The securities allow you to restrict access to content based on individual, group, and page profiles; which allows everyone from general users to board members to access the information they need.

Cons: This platform does not have the most intuitive backend structure possible. Set up can be a bit slow until you take time to get in the system and play around. Also, the navigation can be tricky for end users unless you take the time to structure the tool according to your organizational needs.

Pros: It is a great tool to organize data with protection from the unauthorized use. The best thing about it the fact that it allows and more over enhances the collaboration. It has a great variety of the features for internal and external communication, which helps to make better decisions. This tool grants also a possibility of customization of applications that suit your own business.

Cons: I experience a problem while setting it up correctly. In order to do run it smoothly some expertise is needed. Reaching out to customer support could fix that. Beside that it took a while when everyone got used to using it in our department. Also pricing is a draw back and internet is needed while sharepoint is used.

Overall: When all set up id done, it is a powerful tool to use it. It allows small companies to store, consolidate and to share data. It grants access to creation of the files, customization and sharing with others in the company or the outside users. It also protects data from the unauthorized usage.

Comments: The one thing that would make SharePoint perfect is a hybrid cloud setup. The world desperately needs a local network resource with SharePoint's cloud features.

Pros: Plenty of storage. Integrates well with Windows. Excellent Mobile App (when it works). SharePoint is a superior cloud-based collaboration platform. The most used function is the ability to share an empty folder with a client that allows them to upload files. Then those files magically appear in our synced folder.

Cons: The 2 biggest problems we have with SharePoint are its inability to handle a large amount of files and the mobile app won't always connect to the SharePoint Sites. There's no simple way to migrate a very large number of files for the initial migration. On mobile, if there are too many files in a folder the folder will just appear empty.

Pros: I like the fact that Sharepoint as a platform allows you to connect to pretty much any other content that Microsoft products produce. Im mainly referring to forms here because those are incredibly handy. You can link Excel files, use web parts to have OneDrive locations, embed things like Yammer, Power BI, etc. Definitely a strong platform to share content when you are in a Microsoft ecosystem.

Cons: I find its hard to use, user security setup can be very complicated at times. Browsing through site settings is very daunting, I don't know why they don't give it a relook. Many organizations are using Sharepoint sites these days and it really does need a refresh. That said, there is a lot you can do with the product and probably even more if they increased the ease of use.

Comments: Overall Sharepoint is a solid and mature platform that keeps getting better. It's hard to go wrong with these old Microsoft programs.

Pros: Sharepoint is a reasonably easy to use web-based platform that allows the sharing and editing of documents across the enterprise. Creating and managing new sites and directories is very basic. The access permissions that can be set are impressive--all the way down to the document level. Uploading new documents is one-click, which is convenient.

Cons: Permissions can be clunky. It's not always clear who has access to view or contribute to a folder until a specific user is denied. Also. searching is fairly weak. It will find what you're looking for, but not clearly show where it is. You have to access it from the search and can't locate it for future reference.

Pros: Share Point 2013 introduced online editing of MS files, which seems to work well (although you have to "save" spreadsheet changes, and don't have to with slides - or the other way around?)

You can organize permissions in a flexible enough way.

There is file versioning.

Cons: I've had experiences with SP2010 and SP2013, so please keep this into account.

In 2010, you can't simply move a file from a folder to another. You can if you open the locations with Windows' file explorer - if you find out how. Haven't tried in 2013.

File checkout sometimes gets stuck, and eventually you cannot open the file anymore.

There are sites, lists, collections, folders... it's not easy to figure out how to organize something that you generally imagine hierarchical with all these classifications. I often find it hard to navigate and find files. There's no real breadcrumb to indicate where you are, and I guess it reflects the complex organization of the resources (it's not really files either).

Integration with external systems is quite an effort, if you're not the in the .Net environment.

Overall: How about Google Drive + Google Docs...?

Pros: SharePoint is as deep as you need it to be. If you are a user who needs to create easy pages and sites, SharePoint has a nice web interface with lots of widgets. SharePoint Designer is available for Mid-level tasks like Work Flows, Branding, External Data Connections, etc.. And for the adventurous, you can develop in Visual Studio at the nuts and bolts level.

Cons: Typical Microsoft, there is allot of overhead. For instance, when branding a site, there is a ton of JavaScript and CSS that has to be circumvented. Microsoft tries to do everything for you. It isn't very elegant. Their workflow designer is extremely difficult to learn and navigate. Some of the features are just not documented well.

Overall: It offers us a stable hosting environments. It excels at Document Management.

Absolutely awesome!

Comments: Learn to use features that save you and your team time and hassle. See real-life solutions that you can take back to your office and build for your team. And that is MS SharePoint.

Pros: Microsoft SharePoint is better than Google. One of the best features of Microsoft SharePoint is when I need to clean files and organized it like magic, by easily dragging and dropping your content to move it around. It can also set up meeting to the calendar with everyone work together, if you need to know what other people are doing in order to coordinate schedules. Slides can be download and save. Can be shareable with any individual, everyone in your office as long as they have access.

Cons: There's nothing I can say for it's cons because it's very easy and simple no need for SharePoint training.

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.

Pros: Easy solution to create collaborative solutions like Lists and Document Libraries

Besides Skype which they bought, SharePoint is great for storing and managing documents that need to be shared and collaboratively worked on. Creating a site and list to manage data and share content are easy too.

Cons: Although it is better than before I think there could be more features that don't require you to use SharePoint designer. There are a lot of features not available to the casual user which limits its value. I think the latest UI is better, but there are still issues like being unable to customize spacing and column widths for some lists.

Overall: Collaboration, document repository, shared home space for working. Very good integration with other Office products through Office 365 cloud solution.

Pros: Highly customizable platform that lets a company centralize communication between employees, keep all documents organized, in one place and accessible by whoever needs them. It can also be the core of project management efforts. It can be highly customizable with the right consultation and resources to perform the customizations.

Cons: We used the on-premises version, which needs very specialized resources to implement, install, configure and maintain. If there is a need for high customization it can be expensive because of the need of people to architect the solution, perform the changes to the UI, customize it and maintain it.

Overall: It is our company's intranet, giving employees a place to share news, as questions, and communicate. It is also a centralized document repository.

Comments: The whole platform is a slippery slope to Office365...starts out cheap and then gradually gets more expensive

Pros: It's fully customizable. You can embed your own website inside of Sharepoint and use it as an intranet. Virtually any feature you want to add can be built into the site.

Cons: The problem is it's not functionally complete out of the box. You need to pay a developer to customize the site and make it do the things you want....but then MS will just update it, breaking all the things you've built...so you fork out more development money to fix it.... It breaks frequently, virtually no support form microsoft.

Cons: Oh where to begin...the list is long. It is extremely "clunky" to use. The search results are appalling. We can NEVER find what we are looking for. We are always struggling with permission issues, even after we've opened the pages up to ALL. NOT user friendly. You need extensive training before trying to do anything and then there is the fact that the only good training I can find is what others end up posting on YouTube. Currently looking for another solution for our company and it can't happen quick enough.

Comments: An amazing product to have in your organization, especially the workflow features, although it is starting to overlap with other MS products.

Pros: - Great for collaboration - you can share files with others across your organization - Customizable to meet the particular needs of your organization - great for organization-wide notifications, newsfeeds, HR and other department updates -workflows - this is probably one of the best features. You can create custom workflows for document approvals with complexity (e.g. accounts payable)

Cons: - Sharepoint is starting to overlap with other Microsoft products like OneDrive and MS Teams, which are also good for collaboration so it is good to use best practices to ensure the right stuff gets shared in the right places

Pros: SharePoint is an extremely flexible product that can be developed to suit the needs of any business. The variety of ways in which it can be used is nearly limitless. Even a basic implementation provides extremely powerful business capabilities, and developing code using SharePoint as a platform provides an unlimited number of possibilities. Powerful business apps can be developed within SharePoint, removing the need for additional DB servers or other expensive infrastructure.

Cons: Developing custom apps and tools can be a bit cumbersome. Developing anything custom requires a lot of knowledge and experience, and there are are no avenues that a power user or less experienced technical person can use to develop simple apps

Very good experience! Forget about the pendrive.

Pros: In my company, more than practicality, the sharepoint is used for security, it is definitely a reliable way to keep the most important documents safeguarded.

Cons: Sometimes the access permit fails when you create a site with many users, you must authorize several times until the system finally allows the person to enter.

Overall: I believe that the best benefit, beyond security, is that it allows access to several people to the same site, where the administrator can define the roles of each user. On the other hand, you can create several sites, this way with each department (IT, finance, marketing, sales, security, etc.), you can share different sharepoints, this allows increasing the involvement in the work and more when you have meetings , you can immediately make changes in the presentations or "summary of the meeting" and all have them available instantly.

Pros: I like that I can create a spreadsheet, document, etc, and share it with others within my company and we can all edit it as needed. However, for some reason the whole platform just seems confusing to me, and I've gotten in trouble multiple times when a document wasn't syncing properly or something. I think for SharePoint to really find its place in the market Microsoft needs to really dumb down the interface for blue collar business people like me to whom computers and office work is not second nature.

Cons: Be prepared for some really botched spreadsheets when you discover that the changes you made and the changes someone else made didn't sync, and now you have two separate versions of the same document. Frustrating.

Cons: SharePoint is costly to manage for the smaller organisations and need more technical support as compare to others in same category. Being Microsoft property one can not customized this.Licensing model is little complex.

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

Comments: Overall Sharepoint is a great tool for companies who want to stay within a budget yet want to maximize their efficiency and look for ways to increase worker productivity.

Pros: Sharepoint allows you to automate and create electronic workflows which is a huge benefits for any company attempting to modernize its infrastructure in a reasonable budget. It brings unquestionable efficiencies and can directly contribute to increase in productivity.

Cons: One of the downsides of sharepoint is that after reaching certain volume of work and data, it starts to not work as well. It also does not interface well with other software and often times a manual bridge or interface needs to be in put in place for the data from sharepoint to merge with the rest of the system.

Cons: What I like least about SharePoint is that the user and administrator interfaces are vastly different in the respect that anyone who is an administrator must alternately access the user side view after making SharePoint posts to ensure the requisite data is viewable and thereby user accessible. Setting permissions and public view levels can be cumbersome and confusing for beginners and some intermediate administrator users.

Pros: SharePoint has everything needed in collaboration software (intranet, too). The fact that it is part of Office 365 is just icing on the cake. Everything is focused around groups of people who work together, which is how work turns out naturally. Having documents, notes, and communication all in one secure place is so valuable. The ability to have a formal, feature rich intranet as well allows for easier communication across organizations. Much better way to collaborate than solely via email. One last thing--SharePoint lists are a way to have structured, editable information that can be pulled into Excel and Power BI like a database table.

Cons: It takes some "getting used to" for organizations to change their mindset. It would be nice if Microsoft had information geared directly at those who find it hard to adopt, to help with the process.

Cons: It is easy to publish data that is not perfect, so you better validate and double check before putting things out there, especially if there is a large audience...At a company of 10,000+ like mine, this can be embarrassing and can lead to big mistakes if the wrong users have the wrong level of administrative rights, or data is not thoroughly vetted.

It has also very good integration with Microsoft Word.

Cons: It needs a lot of hardware resources in the On-Premise version and actually it is costly.

The first search is a little bit slow. it takes time to show the search results and maybe assigning more resources, resolve the problem.

for the best functionality, one needs Internet Explorer. although it works under the other browsers.

Pros: I have been working with SharePoint for 10 years (since SharePoint 2003), it's a tool that evolves with time, also adapt to what is changing (mobile, cloud, alerts, workflows, etc.)

It has so many integrations and apps to grow it and adapt it.

Cons: Because its so customizable and its under Microsoft changing RoadMap, you will find yourself that after months of projects and customization Microsoft will stop or change a feature you are using, and that is redo it all again.

My advice will be, try to use the build-in tools, templates, and WebBase customization. The deeper you go the harder the upgrade.

Comments: Sharepoint still remains as the market leader for online collaboration tools and Microsoft has done a lot and continues to invest in more capabilities and features to make their online office applications that much easier to use and powerful as communications tools for business.

Pros: Really like the ability to collaborate with others online without having to send large data files and also ability to easily track file revisions and workflows. Also makes it very easy to seamlessly work between laptops and other devices.

Cons: Performance sometimes is lackluster--mostly during peak work hours. Sometimes opening files online does not work. Limited functionality of editing file content online versus in the desktop application (e.g. Excel, PowerPoint, Word).

Pros: Love to SharePoint for storing files for coworkers across the world to see, presentations to share, training materials to retrieve and reference, and to constantly grow and learn. I also love that you don't have to use your desktop or PC or harddrive space when storing in SharePoint.

Cons: It takes up lots of space and sometimes stalls and crashes. If we could find a way to reduce the space it takes up and reduce some of the stalling then this would be incomparable database for this function.

Overall: This is a fast-fold Innovative database that always keeps us on our toes. We always try to find new ways to communicate across the world not just within our own company locally as a result of this online tool information sharing and Storage. Great stuff.

Pros: The thing I like most about SharePoint is the versatility it provides for managing data and information (projects, lists, calendars, forms, etc.).

Cons: If I had to pick one thing I like the least I would say it is the built in functionality and features that are available. There are a lot of advanced things you can do with SharePoint but it requires a lot of knowledge and expertise, so it would be nice if more of the advanced features were made available to the average user somehow.

Overall: My company uses Microsoft SharePoint for multiple facets of our business - project management, team management, data form/requests and tracking, and document storage and sharing to name a few, and it provides a lot of useful functionality and features that make our job easier.

Pros: This product is very customizable and you have the ability to make it work for you specific needs.

Cons: This product is not very easy to use. You have to learn how to structure this product so you can benefit from it.

Overall: I have used SharePoint for about 3 years now. I have had a good experience with the product and would suggest it to anyone who needs "real time" data. When I say real time data, I mean when one user updates a piece of information, the rest of the users will see the change instantly. This has been a very useful tool to help with communication within my organization. This product is extremely customizable, which is nice in some ways but takes a lot of time to set up and work the way you want it to. Overall, a good product.

Recommendations to other buyers: Being a Microsoft product, there is a lot of information on the web to help assist when you have questions.

Pros: Integration with Microsoft products is great, including active directory, SSO make things easier for users. Extensive ability to permission well.

Cons: Administration is not totally intuitive. I've experienced difficulties with new users as site editors who have aptitude but have significant difficulty figuring out even little tasks such as adding content to a page. Also, while a pro is the wide integration with other MS products, there's almost too much, and the tools change frequently enough that it's difficult to keep up.

Overall: It's included in our agreement with MS (for enterprise software- Outlook, Yammer, SPO, BI, etc) so cost is right. Allows for easy enough access/permissioning and integration with existing business tools from MS.

Comments: At work, it's our internet home page, and we use it to navigate to policies, help desk tickets, department home pages, and more. Again, it does a lot of things OK. It's not the worst; it's definitely not the best.

Pros: You can do a lot with SharePoint - document repository, news feed, Enterprise-Wide Home Screen, and more. It has fairly robust permissions management. Its calendar feature is compatible with Outlook - updates back and forth.

Cons: Though it does all of the above, it does none of it exceptionally. I was demoing a documentation app (MadCap Flare) and worked with one of our SharePoint administrators, and his comment was that the app I was demoing could replace SharePoint for our enterprise. He was right.

Pros: Sharepoint is the best tool to use for document collaboration, great for Operations, WFM, Quality, and most of all, Training. Sharing docs throughout and the organization is super easy with Sharepoint. Agents find it very useful when updates need to be rolled out even on environments who have strict measures on CPNI and Data Protection.

Cons: It can be confusing once shared documents start to pile up, you have to keep a sharp eye for new uploads and not all users are aware of how to sort out docs properly for them to find newly uploaded docs. It's not the first choice either for storing files, it's really meant for storing documents only for collaboration.

We use SharePoint as our team drives instead of shared drives on our network and it works well.

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: 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.

Cons: SharePoint takes some time before introducing different updates, unlike their competitors. No other common disadvantage associated with the product.

Overall: Sharing files from one destination to another is time consuming and expensive. However, by the use of SharePoint, the process has been hastened, and made more secure. SharePoint is the most reliable and affordable tool for sharing items in an organization.

Pros: Microsoft SharePoint is a great all inclusive platform that allows the end user to share files on the cloud. Using a web browser such as Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Firefox Mozilla, Safari, or Internet Explorer, the user can easily manage content on the cloud. The content can be accessed anytime or anywhere on the cloud. Microsoft SharePoint can either be accessed on server bank or online. Microsoft SharePoint is a great collaboration tool. The tool works best with Microsoft files. Microsoft SharePoint allows the hosting of web content such as links, pages, blogs, custom forms, or wikis.

Cons: Some restrictions may apply to file types. Certain file names may not be acceptable. By default the custom script is blocked on user-created sites. Other limitations may include certain restrictions of non supported file types that may not be able to interface with OneDrive for Business. Limitations of storage allowed includes 300,000 files across all document libraries. Size limit for syncing files include 15 GB.

Pros: Integrates with multiple Microsoft products including exchange, lync, and office. Can design pages to function how you want with free sharepoint designer tool.

Has a search function as well as you can connect to an Office Online Server and live edit excel documents with other users.

Cons: Sometimes it can be difficult to get the page you setup to work the way you want it to. Search Function sometimes will need to be fixed if the update is interrupted by clearing the search index and restarting it.

Pros: I like that it takes the onus of the employee to save shared materials and that it can exist in the cloud so it is always there and not lost in email or in a seldom used folder.

Cons: Sometimes the documents function differently when accessing them through Sharepoint. It can usually be figured out but sometimes I have to spend time reformatting or saving again outside of Sharepoint to gain the functionality. Also, when you are the owner and the item is being shared a lot, sometimes the notifications are overwhelming.

Overall: I am able to securely store documents and share them easily. I am also able to have those documents edited by anyone with permissions if necessary.

Pros: Sharepoint makes it easy to organize and edit Microsoft Office documents. It's critical for any team sharing and editing documents in real time, with a full history of versioning and edits in detail. My current team uses is extensively every day to collaborate on the content we create.

Cons: Stability can be a big problem - we have lost documents at a critical time, and have had to resort to local copies of presentations minutes before keynotes. It's best to use as long-term storage, but in its current state I can't recommend fully replacing local storage with SharePoint if time is critical.

Overall: Collaboration, Storage, file organization

Pros: Easily build customized lists with fields that can be defined at will, keep revision history of files for tracking.

Cons: Version 2013 is actually less intuitive than 2010 with edition features in list being hidden until you click somewhere in the list, absolutely not user-friendly and should always be visible. Customizable lists are nice but at 5000 items or more they get a performance hit. Database is hard to query (Lots of fields don't show up with your typical Select * but do when specified by name and multi-select fields data is a serious pain to get to).

Overall: Used extensively on a daily basis, backbone of intranet and useful for documents repository.

Pros: I would say the biggest pro is the document sharing capabilities. It is much easier when everyone can access the document through a link and make their updates without having multiple versions. Setting retention helps manage out of date documents. I like how you can lock certain folders and libraries down for a select group of users as well. We use it at work and it has made file sharing so much easier.

Cons: When SharePoint goes down, you cannot access your documents, which is difficult if you need them in a timely manner. If too many people are in a document, sometimes changes don't get saved or get saved over.

Cons: You have to really understand the differences between Pages, Sites, Lists and so on... You also have to understand permission levels according to Microsofts guidelines. Big learning curve but after you have been in it for a while it is easy to use.

Overall: Day-to-day business activities are simplified. SharePoint simplifies common activities such as initiating, tracking and reporting business activities.

Collaboration is more effective.

Pros: We can put all the documents for complete company to access. We can set who can have access. It is a good tool for any intranet . It is so much easier than working on pinging the team every time there is an update. If you are using Microsoft products for your company then you know why it rules despite having so many other cheaper options available. It has cloud and mobile access on the go. The MS Office works great whenever you want to edit if it is integrated with sharepoint.

Cons: We don't have much space for the support on the internet. The public support is no longer there. We need to shed good amount of money for the support from people who know about it.

Overall: The Sharepoint serves the company intranet well, making the lives of people at company a lot easier . The most of daily tasks such as sharing of files to team mates are made easy with it. We can customize it according to our needs. There are whole lot of options which are made keeping in mind the professionals life.

Pros: The versioning and the ability to restore back to any version makes this product extremely useful.

In this ever expanding industry its not humanly possible for an entire team to be located at the same location. In such a scenario it becomes vital to have robust tool which can be used to share document and be able to control its versioning.

Cons: The search file option does not really help much in case of cascaded file structure. Any non-it user could easily get lost while trying to navigate between files. The only other thing that I see a problem with is the upload time taken for bigger file sizes.

Pros: This platform truly has a lot of functionality and power to be able to bring customizable business needs together across a team. Especially if simple lists, workflows, and apps are what you need, it has you covered. It is easily accessible across all types of devices.

Cons: If you want to truly get the power from it, you have to have someone who's full time job is dedicated to managing it and improving it every day. SharePoint is a beast in and of itself, and you can make it too complicated and not very streamlined quickly if you give someone who doesn't know what they are doing too much access

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.

Comments: SharePoint is included in the Office 365 Business subscriptions. I first started using it (and still use it) as a file library. With a little reading into it, the possibilities of SharePoint are amazing. We have used it to automate business processes and provide clients direct access to information. Even with this, I've barely scratched the surface of possibilities. SharePoint is perhaps the most under appreciated feature of Office 365.

Pros: Integration with Office 365 Excellent mobile version. Fairly easy to customize. You don't have to be a guru to do it.

Cons: Not the most intuitive interface for customizations. Many, many options. Yes, that's a good thing but it can be overwhelming.

Pros: As a user, Sharepoint is rather intuitive to learn how to start navigating and to upload a document or two, if designed properly.

Cons: It can be quite cumbersome as an administrator to learn how to manage and design on Sharepoint. If untrained, you'll find yourself searching videos on YouTube and visiting sites to learn tons of 'How To's'.... this can be even more time-consuming when the task is specific. In short, Sharepoint requires user-training if one is going to go deep into building out a site run on Sharepoint for multiple users... the more sophisticated, the more training required.

Pros: On the outside looking in SharePoint looks good. When completed and done correctly the sites look great. they can be easy to Navigate and use.

Cons: Making these SharePoint Sites easy to use takes a lot of work. Editing these sites can be a pain and you have to make sure that everything is just perfect or you can set off the whole site. There are many editing issues and the education to use this software is not a quick learn. There are many other programs that do what SharePoint does that takes lots less of your time to build.

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.
