What do you like best?

All contents being on cloud, Scope of extension/scalability is very high.

Creating a new site/directory is very easy and manageable. Nice access approval system to any sharepoint directory or site. Users need to request the access before using the website or owner can manage how and whom to give access when creating the site.

Syncing the sharepoint content is a nice feature. Once downloaded, do all your task from that copy. This will be automatically send updates when any changes made or the local copy auto updates after sharepoint changes by other users.

Sharing any kind of document becomes much easier.

Search is very fast across the whole website.

Ability to share with users outside the organization.

What do you dislike?

Syncing takes more and more when usage of the site increase. Scope of improvement in search functionality by displaying the main headings and contents effectively.

Recommendations to others considering the product

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Process automated. Increased efficiency of business requirement sharing and access. Website management is very easier with latest changes.

Review of SharePoint Platform

Reviewed On
Validated Review

What do you like best?

I primarily use SharePoint as a data system for tracking project management information. I like the layout of the the platform and the ability to customize views according to the information being portrayed. I also enjoy being able to collaborate with users who are not employed by the same company. This function allows me to interact with hundreds of individuals from different partners at the same time.

What do you dislike?

At times, SharePoint can be difficult to work with depending on a user's knowledge of the platform. Given the variety of individuals that enter information into my SharePoint site, I have to facilitate training sessions so that users limit entry errors. The whole concept of creating and customizing views is great for those that know how to use it, but for an occasional user it can be overwhelming. I also think that Microsoft needs to integrate SharePoint and Outlook better so that the calendar and other features are all linked together. I think that reminders and events occurring in SharePoint would be better attended if users could see them through their Outlook profiles.

Recommendations to others considering the product

SharePoint is a solid platform for storing and managing documents, files, or systems with a wide array of people. Ensure that it is set-up exactly to your standards and criteria before implementation. It can be hard to change your systems and processes once they are already in place.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

SharePoint has allowed me to solve data entry and management issues. The ability to set parameters and boundaries on what can be entered into the system has led to less errors and variability in my data. The benefits of this are that I spend less time and resources to correct other peoples mistakes. It has also led to better file management and collaboration among users working on the same things. If there is ever a question on where to find supporting documentation, its easy to direct someone to SharePoint and let them locate it themselves.

The point of sharing

What do you like best?

The best feature is the ability to access multiple document sources within a unified, secure location. Versus having to search through a hard drive for the most updated document, sharepoint centralizes the documents with their latest version so there is no guesswork. I appreciate the levels of ability for users to access or update records as well so there is no issue with important documents being updated incorrectly or even removed without accurate permissions.

I also greatly appreciate the ability to work Remotely and assess all sharepoint documents without issue.

What do you dislike?

The only downfall would be trying to access a document when another user is updating the document. The flip side to this is the information was needing to be updated and will have the latest information. However, it can be an issue if needs are imperative.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Awesome option for storing secure company documents.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use sharepoint to update and store a variety of documents that are accessed globally. The benefits of real time updates have been most beneficial. We also appreciate the data security that is provided for our proprietary documents.

What do you like best?

Sharepoint is a higest rated , valuable software in our organisation. It is a cloud based hosting shared files collaboration. You can use this as a network storage with additional purchased spaces as needed.SharePoint is great for file sharing especially when you do not have a collaborative file that everyone can contribute to at the same time.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes I miss the advanced search option here. it can get a little clustered and unorganized. Sharing files with external users can also be difficult if they are not familiar with the platform and how it works.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Yes, If you are implementing Office365, it will come with most licenses. I wouldn't let SharePoint be the deciding factor between using Office 365 or not, but it's pretty nice to have it there.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using Sharepoint , We uploaded share data is large documents.With SharePoint, we were able to replace our in house server and allow employees to work from outside the office when they need to.

A robust program for internal use

Reviewed On

Verified Current User
What do you like best?

It's a very robust program with organizational features such as document libraries, calendars, and project management tools. Sharepoint is used as our company's intranet system and most documents and communication are filtered through our site.

What do you dislike?

A little too robust. It can sometimes be difficult to use on Macs and will time out with an error screen, losing whatever information or document that was uploaded. It doesn't have the best project management resources and it's not aesthetically pleasing or intuitive. It takes a while to get used to the different functions and how to get to them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would not recommend Sharepoint for Mac users for obvious reasons, this is a Microsoft tool and can be cumbersome on the Mac platform. It's great for organizing documents, internal communication, and overall visibility between departments within a company.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Communication, document viewing and sharing, and project management.

It is great to have everyone in the company utilizing the same program and having this program as tool to communicate and collaborate on projects. It's also helpful that you can link your Outlook account to Sharepoint for notifications or calendar updates.

What do you like best?

the similarity to all microsoft products, the essence is on it. colours and lines are ok

What do you dislike?

i cannot work it, is not so easy to use. i have it at my mobile, on the web, and so on, but there are sometimes that you cannot upgrade the changes done, or it moves on to the other sites, and collapses the other programs you are using. is not friendly usage, i feel i am not doing well with it, so i left it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I do not recommend a program that i can not use it properly. maybe is not my right tool, but at least i have tried, i hope i could give more chances but the problem is the time is important, and if i must to work it, i rather prefer to use some other program that gives me the funcionalities on a easier way. time is gold... isnt it?

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

it is supposed for share all the information between the team and with the management, but... it is not solving it right now
