What do you like best?
It allows you to work from anywhere without being in the office with your team members or visitors. Access to the Microsoft O365 toolset. The access to the permits is packaged and its configuration is very easy. On the other hand, Synchronization of the document library has never been easier and more functional, as well as the synchronization of OneDrive files. The accessibility of the information that is needed to perform my daily tasks. Its design is very easy to understand. One of its biggest advantages is the ease with which I can share the link and create the flow, so I know when the file is approved and ready to move on.
What do you dislike?
At the time of using the program the code disappoints, coupled with this, the design that is going to be used is unpleasant, you have to customize the interface, it does not have a real option which allows me to change the appearance, you can change the theme to a similar one with minor modifications, the search function is alarming because it often requires changes to the search schema and profiles in the root administrator; which is a nuisance.
When you must edit the sheets in Excel in line with Share Point, it does not allow me to use the features you have because they are not available. If I want to share the document with another user, authorization must be requested from the owner, as long as the user is not configured in the folder.
Recommendations to others considering the product
I would suggest that you look for other tools or options until the design interface is much more intuitive to control; unless you are a web developer with time to manage this. If the product is used for the first time, let the product speak.
Because of the experience SharePoint has had since he was with a company that used it for the first time. I would recommend to continue using it, because it has good It has good characteristics. As the program evolves it presents excellent features, when using Sharepoint, take note of how the company has stored its information in it and make sure that the routes to access important documents are noticed, so that there are no problems to find the information that is needed.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We can access the files anywhere and we can edit files together in real time so there are no version problems. I used Sharepoint as a point of reference to keep up with the company's policies and procedures. It allowed a "one-stop shop" to obtain each and every one of the questions that I could have encountered during my daily work tasks. On the other hand, sharepoint 2013 is used both for internal processes and for customers. We do invoice processing for our clients. SharePoint scales very well and adding new clients is so simple that we have been able to do almost completely with PowerShell scripting.
