"Office Suite Gets Collaborative HeavyLifting"

What do you like best?

The clear, accessible layout of profiles/members and relevant files and events. When looking for someone within your organization, results are quickly listed and finding your data point or document or whatever it may be is achieved within 10 seconds or less, typically.

What do you dislike?

While collaborative/shared info is presented well here, it is not always as simple as within the Office software suite or a full-size browser. The mobile version is going to be slightly condensed for visual and functional simplicity, and while this serves the greater good, it's not quite as easy to use on the go. Having drill-down, long-press, or "Force Touch" capabilities built in would enable more secondary functionality here.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you currently deploy or are part of a Microsoft Office-based or even Windows 7/10 platform, SharePoint is a great cloud collaboration tool.

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

Immediate communication and sharing of documents, agendas/calendars, and grouped team details. Whereas prior we relied upon shared network drives and storage pathways, going to a cloud solution has allowed us to be more time effective, more detailed, and more productive, less redundant.

"Sharepoint to the rescue!"

What do you like best?

Sharepoint is the best tool on the market, in my opinion, when it comes to managing business content for projects that have deadlines and due dates that you don't want to forget. It allows you to upload any document types that are relevant to your project and edit them right within the software. Sharepoint is a virtual environment that managers and users can create, organize, and share any information all in one place.

What do you dislike?

The only thing that I have found that can be a challenge is when you edit excel documents within the SharePoint tool itself. Sometimes the original tools within excel are not available just depending on which version of excel you used originally in the document. However, there is a button that you can export the document back to the original software (excel in this case) and edit then re-import back into Sharepoint.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I enjoy using this tool and it helps to connect and interact with coworkers on the project. You can even assign people tasks and due dates which is nice.

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

I enjoy that Sharepoint can be tailored to any type of project or activity and you can use it for a variety of collaborative projects. Even coworkers in other regions or states can participate since all the data is in one central location

"Para gestionar de manera optima su intranet"

What do you like best?

The best thing about SharePoint is to have a centralized site to share and work in a team with all the members of a project or the company. Creating these scenarios is ideal for an optimal work flow and to be able to organize the information, audit it and always be in movement. It is highly configurable and editable, and several people can work on the same document at the same time. Also very useful is the control that is given to the creator of the document who can modify the permissions at his disposal to edit and read the file.

What do you dislike?

The learning curve of SharePoint is high, Windows should be in I since I consider it a great tool for teamwork. The interface should update it to be in line with the other elements of Office and the functionality could also improve to have better control of the GUI.

Recommendations to others considering the product

With the necessary technical training this can be a great product for your company, however consider other more useful options for your intranet market.

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

The best thing about this is the schematization that offers us in the tasks, we no longer need to send so many emails a day with this tool. The form that allows us to communicate and keep us informed on the intranet is very positive, improving times and optimizing work. The availability of information also improves with SharePoint, anyone can access the document quickly only with your Microsoft account.

"An all-in-one service"

What do you like best?

I can customize everything I need for my company. It's an excellent tool that brings in many different software items. It works best for an intranet option to keep everyone in my company on the same page and allows us to work together on items. I also enjoy being able to make it "look pretty." It isn't the same old boring interface you might find with other intranet options.

What do you dislike?

There is a bit of a learning curve, but Microsoft is continuing to make changes/updates that is making it more user friendly. Flows used to be a really difficult item, but they've since made this pretty simple to implement.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't be afraid of the learning curve or accessing someone to get your site up and running. Once it's designed for what you need, it's an easy and incredible intranet product.

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

Communication and work processes! We can now automate a lot of things that used to be lost in email. requests, time, documents, review processes - everything is in SharePoint now.

"Centralized documentation for work groups"

What do you like best?

The best thing about sharepoint is the centralization of the information, which allows different users of different work environments to quickly and orderly access information and work on it, from any site, inside and outside the company. It also allows you to create collaboration environments that improve the flow of information, the organization and audit of it, It is a tool that if you know how to use it is very powerful

What do you dislike?

Regarding my experience in sharepoint, there are some elements in terms of administration that can become something, confusing, in the same way for some users, the learning curve can be somewhat more complicated, finally the availability of storage both the onedrive site and the sharepoint that is included in the office suite can generate confusion when storing information for some users.

Recommendations to others considering the product

With the necessary training, or with the experience that gives the use of this tool, it can become very powerful, to manage multidisciplinary collaborative environments, which is why I recommend this tool since it can improve workflows a lot.

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

It allowed us to improve the availability and centralization of information in multidisciplinary projects involving several departments of our company, some subsidiaries and suppliers that have needed to get involved.

Another problem that came to solve this tool, was what concerned the monitoring, the audits of the changes made in the shared information, in the same way allowed to increase the security of the information and the restorations of the same with version control

"Great tool for projects"

What do you like best?

I like that you can create projects within this tool. I work with fraud and closely with an audit team and we have used this tool to streamline and organize professional internal audits of how operations are running. I enjoy that you can create checklists and add different steps within the projects.

What do you dislike?

The only thing that I have found that I dislike about this professional tool is that if you save Word or Excel docs within the project, sometimes when you edit the documents it forces you to edit outside of Sharepoint, and within the originating software to have access to all the tools needed. I find this issue to happen frequently within Excel docs that I upload. The good thing is that the software gives the option to edit within sharepoint or the original software used to create the document. I just wish that you could edit within the software with the original functions needed.

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

Within my department we are using this software to help on audits and operational reviews.

"Variedad de contenido. Pobre en imaginación."

What do you like best?

Tenemos una buena aplicación para gestión de diseño gráfico en web, aunque bastante difícil de gestionar. Como aspectos positivos de esta versión de Sharepoint, destacaría la rapidez con la que permite hacer ediciones y personalizaciones de la interfaz, aunque quedan bastantes cosas por mejorar bajo nuestro criterio como vamos a detallar a continuación. Sí cabe resaltar como aspecto positivo que la opción de poder editar y mover todo el contenido al gusto del usuario es un paso muy favorable para esta versión.

What do you dislike?

Aun así, no dejan de ser X patrones predefinidos que no permiten su edición más allá de algo extremadamente básico. Igualmente, no existe un entorno de preproducción donde poder colgar la versión en fase beta para buscar fallos de enlaces o diseño. Es algo que está haciendo que demoremos su uso, ya que no transmite seguridad alguna y cualquier mínimo fallo sería sacado a la red inmediatamente, cosa que retiene su uso.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Como ya he explicado, deben mejorar bastantes factores expuestos en los cuadros anteriores. Personalmente, no pagaría hoy día por una aplicación como esta tal y como se está viendo.

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

Todavía no podemos constatar los problemas surgidos más allá de los ya expuestos en el párrafo anterior, ya que nos encontramos en el descubrimiento de esta aplicación, pero sería interesante poder añadir más plantillas/patrones, incluso diferenciados por temática. No obstante, también el aspecto de no poder agregar las modificaciones en un entorno de pre, sino directo a producción, es son factores muy en contra para usar esta aplicación, cosa que se ha reportado a Microsoft y se han comprometido a estudiarlo.

"Useful Product with an Outdated Model"

What do you like best?

SharePoint has some interesting features, the best of which is the ability to share and edit documents throughout the company. You can have several people collaborating on an Excel document at the same time. I can tell my employer to pull up a document on her computer at the same time that I have it pulled up on my computer. You can easily set up all of the different pages to have a unique look and design according to what you are looking for. It is great for organizing documents and is highly configurable, making everything easier to access.

What do you dislike?

It seems outdated. The look and feel of it needs to be modernized, as well as the maneuverability of the site. It seems as though it is still stuck in the version of Office 365 from 2013. It could look much more professional and could be updated with many new features.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely try it out. Once you get things figured out and set up, it can be very convenient.

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

Our problem is having a lack of organized documents that need to be accessed by all employees in the corporation.

SharePoint is very helpful for sharing documents between employees so that everyone can have access to full information.

It is also important for us to move from paper use to electronic use. This reduces waste, increases efficiency, and also improves accuracy and accessibility to our most important documents.

"Excellent tool for both internal and students users to collaborate on team projects"

What do you like best?

My favorite feature is the access control I have as the creator of a document. Also how easy it is to define those permissions the most current version is very user friendly compare to earlier versions I have used. As a student working in teams is great with this tool that is provided for free with our Office 365 Package. I've used it extensively in every project I have done over the past years and never been disappointed. While interning in the IT department I saw the internal value from a security aspect as well.

What do you dislike?

The cost is fairly high for a tool that has many of the same features that Google Docs has for free.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If a previous experience was not as good as you had hoped I would try it again because the user friendliness has gotten better an better with each new release of Office 365. Even team members who had no IT experience used the tool with ease after a brief explanation of of its features.

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

I think main concern today is security and that I feel using a tool developed by Microsoft give an added feeling of security over a free tool like Google docs. I know it has been helpful for the users to be able to chat inside when more that one person on the team is accessing the document at the same time. The real-time updates are very cool when working together you can see the work your team member is doing and comment real time if you have a suggestion.

"Collect, Organize and Share Information!"

What do you like best?

I use Microsoft SharePoint everyday, in my case I really like that I am able to effectively keep my information repository, share important information with team members and even configure an personalize my sites, I use it to manage info within a team of individuals in multiple geographical locations

What do you dislike?

I would like to have more options for themes built in, so it will be easier to customize it, also some of the configuration requires some knowledge that not everyone has, still not hard and if you look for resources online there is tons of useful information

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are in need of organizing your information and having a secure way to share it within your team, then I would highly recommend the use of Microsoft Sharepoint

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

Basically I use it mainly as a repository for important information and files within my department, but I also use it to conduct surveys, lists, to share info with others and as a way of informing people and communicating like posting news, banners, pictures etc

"Everything all in one"

What do you like best?

This software can be used as an information hub for our virtual team!

What do you dislike?

It is not user friendly. This software is a little more difficult to learn without formal training.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I suggest training on this product because it can offer you SO MANY solutions, particularly when you have a virtual team or even some members that are virtual and some that are on site. Designate only a few people to have access to update your Sharepoint because it can get messy with too many hands in the pot.

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

Our team is 100% virtual so all of our trainings and important shared documents are on our team's Sharepoint site! I've also utilized it for a frequently asked questions page for our entire team (Multiple people can answer the questions when posted!) This site also allows us to have shared documents that need to be edited by multiple people!

"Centeralized documentation made easy"

What do you like best?

So many document storage solutions took away the parent to child relationship between folders like most companies uses for shared drives. Sharepoint keeps this in place which is ESSENTIAL for proper permissions and staying HIPAA compliance while respecting people relationship between folders for a clean file system.

What do you dislike?

The administration to this is tricky and a bit cumbersome. Also, there is some confusion where the line is drawn between Sharepoint and Once Drive for Business as well as One Drive Personal.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are in a HIPAA environment this seems to go. The security platform is bar none in the industry. I would recommend always doing a vendor analysis but Microsoft is an industry leader for a reason.

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

We are trying to solve a central storage point with revision control, proper permissions and this solution solved this. We tried dropbox and SharePoint won out right.

"SharePoint worked for our qualitative needs, not quantitative "

What do you like best?

SharePoint was great for documenting a lot of different details. The ability to search out necessary details was great and convenient for a quick result. We have a years worth of documentation that we still currently utilize when specific historical details are needed.

What do you dislike?

SharePoint did not allow for our business to excel in the end. We take registrations and details from our consumers. We reached a limit to the amount of information that we were able to store and the details we needed to continue documenting and utilizing were not able to be taken or referenced very easily. SharePoint only works well for us when we go to an older version of the site, so once we are logged in we have to navigate to additional spots through multiple clicks before getting to the destination to actually search and utilize our records.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The set up is key depending on how you want to "file" or store your information. Spend a lot of time mapping out how you plan to utilize SharePoint so that it can be used to its full potential. I do not believe our set up was helpful, therefor we did not gain as much as we could have from the program.

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

We temporarily solved the documentation, search, and storage issues we were looking to resolve. We realized the benefits of having all the documentation stored and shared among others in once common place.

"Love Sharepoint! "

What do you like best?

I definitely think my favorite thing about Sharepoint is the way my staff is able to work on documents together and access files easily. We all go to the same place weekly, have no issues, and are all able to access the documents needed.

What do you dislike?

I think one thing that could change about Sharepoint would be to make it easier to access from your mobile phone. Another dislike would be that there isn't the capacity for all business-related tasks to be completed online there, and that you most likely will be using two different softwares and will have to switch back and forth on a regular basis.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take advantage of all the features and possibilities that are available within the software. It is definitely a place where you can bring your creativity to life! I would recommend this to anyone in a business setting where your department uses the same documents and you have weekly paperwork to fill out. Everything being in one spot makes it much easier for you as a user to stay organized and also save time. You can save so much time switching to Sharepoint from a previous software because they allow you to hold all of your documents in one place.

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

We use it to access necessary documents and fill out forms that we need to write weekly. We are solving the issues that come up on a daily basis within our office.

"Secured and Efficient Collaboration"

What do you like best?

As its name indicates, it is mainly a sharing platform but what differentiates it from other platforms is its security and functionality. Compared to Google Drive, it is more secure because only employees with an Outlook account can access it, and to add to that, they would also need to be granted access specifically by the administrator of the group. Being part of the "Office 365" group, information dissemination between different tools is seamless.

What do you dislike?

If you are not experienced in the Office 365 environment, it might be overwhelming initially. There are a lot of functions so it would take some time to be used to it. Problems with your Microsoft Outlook account can also hinder you from accessing your files.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely take your time to learn the basics of it. It could be overwhelming, but once you get the hang of it, it's like a goldmine. Take advantage of the fact that it's accessible online and that it can be easily organized to make your job easier.

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

With SharePoint, file sharing is definitely more secure and seamless. Having had an H drive collaboration folder previously, it was a challenge having to go through all the folders. SharePoint makes storing documents organized and user-friendly. Moreover, it's accessible online.

"Herramienta buena en la nube"

What do you like best?

Tener nuestros datos alojados en una ubicación basada en la nube que permite a cualquier persona de mi equipo acceder a ellos desde cualquier lugar. Este es uno de los mayores avances que hemos tenido en nuestra compañía. También somos usuarios de Office, por lo que la integración entre el correo electrónico y Sharepoint es inmejorable. Es muy fácil tener un portal con un inicio de sesión que te permita acceder a todos tus datos.

What do you dislike?

Sharepoint está optimizado para la última versión de los navegadores de Windows (Internet explorer o edge) y puede dar algunos problemas mientras se usa en las versiones anteriores de los navegadores o de las ventanas. Microsoft debería arreglar esto a tiempo para poder seguir compitiendo con la competencia.

También es destacable el soporte para dispositivos móviles, que no es tan sorprendente ya que casi nadie usa navegadores de microsoft en dispositivos móviles. Una aplicación de punto compartido dedicada para dispositivos móviles sería una gran idea.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Creo que es una buena plataforma para tener como respaldo los archivos y para supervisar quién puede ver, editar y subir archivos. Los pequeños problemas que tuve son problemas menores que se pueden solucionar y creo que el beneficio es bastante bueno.

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

Cada uno de nuestros centros tiene su propia página. Pueden ver actualizaciones, notas, mirar instrucciones y todos ven la misma información. El sitio te dice a quién se ha quitado un archivo y quién fue el último en realizar cambios.

"Slow Response Rate "

What do you like best?

There is a large amount of storage space for all of your files. You can easily house zip files, photos and documents and organize with tags and folders.

What do you dislike?

The response rate can be very slow for the program to load when opening files. It may be because it is internet based. Sometimes the program also can't find what I'm searching for even though there are tags on there. I also cannot preview zip files while in the program.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Realize there may be some delay when loading files due the program depending on the internet. Overall, it is a great place to share and store files.

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

We use Sharepoint to house files for our Marketing and Development teams. We share and organize files that we will be using for upcoming events, grants and past events. It's the perfect place to put all of our documents and feel secured that our files are there for later use.

"Sharepoint Review"

What do you like best?

I liked how you could add to the calendar and everyone could work together. Since the power point feature was operated by Microsoft Word it was better than Google. Google slides do not download/save as effectively as SharePoint slides. You can also get news, which is helpful to have it in the same place that you check your mail at.

What do you dislike?

It is not easy to share with people who do not have an outlook account. Google is better and easier to share. The powerpoint abilities were limited and didn't allow you to use the full features.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure everyone you would want to share with has access

If you want to use powerpoint make sure that you know when you download it, it might get messed up so know where you put things so you can replicate it

the calendar feature is nice if you need to know what other people are doing in order to coordinate schedules.

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

My group was able to collaborate and share points. Since we are in college it is hard to meet with each other in person. We were also given the chance to send our work to our professors who were able to give us proper feedback through this channel. My job kept the calendar on SharePoint which helped us know when we needed to come into work and when we did not. Also, we knew when co-workers would be there as well.

"It is the best option for team sharing documents that are heavy and confidential. "

What do you like best?

You can customize how you want your Share Point to be, which is really good because it is not just a cloud, it looks like your personal website. Your information is protected by several levels of encryption, which is great if you need to share information about your company or your clients. It also works as a back up information on a cloud of all the files that you and your team works could need in case that somethings happens to the computer. It is integrated with all the others Microsoft software.

What do you dislike?

It is really difficult to install it on your own, it is necessary to have a specialist on IT. Besides that, once you have it you can used without any problem. At the beginning is a little complicated to understand how it works, but once you got it you would not stop using it with your colleagues and your work teams. It is a expensive software but it is worth it, because it is the best one on the market right now.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It would be great to be able to installed it yourself without having to pay it an expert to do it, because the software is already expensive enough.

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

It is a secure and practical way to share files and collaborate with my team members files. Also with the mobile app, I can work from everywhere without problem. It allows me to have a back up of my files in case of a emergency or an accident. It has improve internal communications on the company and keep everyone connected.

"SharePoint: Colaboración en la nube"

What do you like best?

SharePoint nos permite multitud de opciones para nuestra empresa o entorno de trabajo (departamento, sección...). No requiere ser un experto en la herramienta (aunque si es necesario si se desea un desarrollo muy profesional) y nos permite a través de plantillas crear un site y ajustarlo a lo que queremos.

Para mí, y como ejemplo, la mejor opción es crear un entorno de colaboración en el que podamos tener sincronizados todos nuestros archivos, con la enorme ventaja de que en el entorno de Office 365 se permite la edición simultánea de un mismo archivo por distintos usuarios (lo cual es francamente genial), así de este modo podemos prescindir de sistemas como NAS, carpetas compartidas a través de la red, o medios extraíbles y usar este entorno de archivos, con la seguridad que ofrece. Además las versiones de archivo, que permite saber quién y cuando ha editado un archivo, y si fuese necesario, volver atrás, visualizar los cambios, y guardar como actual una versión anterior si fuese necesario.

Una herramienta genial que funciona a través de OneDrive y que toda empresa debería estar usando.

What do you dislike?

La sincronización de archivos es lenta cuando se trata de un gran volumen de archivos.

Las rutas no pueden superar un máximo de 254 caracteres.

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

Solucionar el trabajo ineficiente y pérdida de tiempo de uso de medios obsoletos para el entorno empresarial. Ahorrando tiempo y recursos.

"Great Clean-up Tool!"

What do you like best?

The option to have information accessible everywhere, online or offline. This makes a wonderfully seamless transition for working in the office, to working at home, or at a remote location. I love having accessibility wherever I go, so I am able to help my employees the best I can at any time I have available. I also appreciate that you can access it from your desktop to minimize the number of internet windows/tabs open, makes for a cleaner workflow.

What do you dislike?

The first sync needs to be forced while connected to a network. I think they should more clearly encourage the sync. I would have synced much sooner and would have been more beneficial had I know this up front, rather than stumbling across it on my own.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a pretty seamless, and natural transition from using your internal hard drive, or shared drive, to something that can be used on any

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

We had been using a shared H:\ folder, and it was A MESS. We were able to drastically clean up, categorize, and encourage better habits moving forward with the business. We also had to educate our staff on information backup, and enjoy how everything in SharePoint/OneDrive is backed up by the cloud, unlike if they are storing documents solely on their desktops.

"Knowledgebase the way it's meant to be. "

What do you like best?

I love how it is easy to navigate through SharePoint pages, and how easy it is to make one. SharePoint is a sort of a Wordpress amongst Knowledgebase websites. You can easily create a good looking page just how you imagined without any problem and in no time. And I love the option that I can Synchronize Sharepoint with OneDrive and that way I can always have updated version of documents stored on my computer so if I go offline I can have them with me.

What do you dislike?

There isn't much that I don't like about SharePoint, but I would like to see more templates for creating Pages, I would like to see Header and footer with more than 3 columns which could be useful for documents to be linked.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If your organization is using Office 365 you should definitely check Sharepoint out.

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

We use SharePoint to store all our documentation and Procedures so that anyone can get to them easily. A benefit is that we can search through SharePoint quickly and get to the right document in no time.

"Sharepoint for sharing!"

What do you like best?

When software developers create the names of new software, sometimes they get it wrong. With Sharepoint, it is spot on! Sharepoint delivers the ability to share documents of all kinds with the ability to keep projects managed and on time. I enjoy so many features of this tool that it's hard to know where to start. You have the ability to import Word, Excel, and many other documents and even edit them in the management platform.

What do you dislike?

The one thing I have found that is unsettling about Sharepoint is the access levels. I can add people/coworkers to my Sharepoint site, but as far as access goes, I can't seem to find info on how to manage the access levels for users.

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

Managing business content is the best way to explain the benefits within Sharepoint.

"SharePoint is a Great Tool for Collaboration"

What do you like best?

I really enjoy a few things about SharePoint:

- Integration with Microsoft: This means that there are powerful, second-to-none productivity tools at your disposal. I'm thinking of Word, Excel, PPT, and OneNote in particular. For OneNote, there's even a link on the right-hand side of each page where you would store "notes" in a "notebook" that relate to the page.

- Intuitive Layout: From the home button, you can see pages that you follow (if you hit the star on the upper left-hand side of the page and hit "following") as well as recent pages that you visited. This makes it easier to pick up where you left off.

What do you dislike?

I have no dislikes thus far, but I will say that Microsoft, and SharePoint in particular, is probably one of the only firms/products whether the company can get away with no simplicity. Users demand simplicity and intuitiveness from most applications. In the case of SharePoint, however, Microsoft offers us a massive amount of functionalities, many which will never be used by most folks.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider SharePoint if you 1) need to collaborate with others and 2) are seeking the most powerful tool available. Otherwise, other simpler solutions could serve you just as well.

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

We solved the problem of collaboration in our team. In particular, from "Home", we can all view the information that is relevant to each one of us as well as keep abreast of things that are happening in other parts of the organization.

"Now my team and I have one place to access shared documents - and do live edits together. "

What do you like best?

The ability to have multiple people editing a document and seeing live edits. It also helps keep documents up-to-date and current. Now I don't have to hunt down for the most recent version of a document. I know that the one on Sharepoint is the most up-to-date. Now I don't have to ask for a document or be asked to email a document. My team knows where our needed documents are. The capability to have a doc on my computer update to the cloud is amazing.

What do you dislike?

Some utility of Excel is not available in the edit in browser function - which works best to see live updates when editing as a team. Some limitations in Excel functionality in edit in browser.

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

Business problem: No team library. Losing historical documents, or having to ask different team members to search their computer to send needed documents. Restarting the same document. Sharing a document on an insecure place.

Benefits: having a shared team library. Saving historical documents. Having a collaborative document in a secure place.

"A powerful collaboration tool often underutilized because of users aversion of its navigation style."

What do you like best?

SharePoint is amazing for its housing and complex workflow routing of documents, document version history and control management, and integration to Windows Explorer. Within libraries, users can filter columns in order to find specific files based on input tags. Furthermore, users can complete assigned SharePoint tasks directly from their Outlook Inbox if desired, thus cutting out a lot of extra clicking and navigating.

What do you dislike?

New Windows 10 browser, Microsoft Edge, isn't fully compatible with all of SharePoint's administrative features. Since the Windows 10 update I often have to use Edge in conjunction with older and slower Internet Explorer in order to perform administrator duties. Also, because most users are accustomed to using shared drives in Windows, they often poorly utilize SharePoint as a simply another version this - preferring to make many folders and sub-folders, rather than tagging document sets with pertinent information. When implementing SharePoint solutions, users have often pushed back because of its steep navigational learning curve.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try to avoid using this product as a shared drive, and instead subscribe to SharePoint's philosophy of flat organization combined with use of tagging to find documents. Also, do not rely too heavily on SharePoint's search feature as it can return limited results.

Use SharePoint to collaborate on joint publications and projects where many different files are in play. In it not only can you organize documents to best suit your needs, but multiple users can work on the same document at the same time, much like in Google Docs. SharePoint workflows are a great feature, especially paired integrated with Microsoft Outlook - automated emails keep help keep everyone on the same page and can help track the status of a document's progression to completion.

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

I use SharePoint primarily for its document workflow capabilities. I have built several document libraries to route different types of documents, and for the creation of forms designed through InfoPath. I also frequently manage permissions for individual users and user groups in order to keep sensitive information safely accessible. With SharePoint I have changed the nature of clearance routing in my organization, phasing out paper routing almost completely - a feat that few believed could be accomplished. Also, because all workflow and document history is in one place, the number of back and forth emails between users over a single document has decreased dramatically. Users who have experience using something like a shared drive will find SharePoint to be similar in many ways.

"Una poderosa herramienta para crear sitios web de forma sencilla."

What do you like best?

Es una herramienta fácil de emplear, pero para ello es conveniente tener conocimientos de programación para emplearla con éxito. Con ésta es posible crear páginas y sitios web personales y corporativos de forma sencilla por medio de contenidos. Ideal para cualquier solución de negocio. Posee una buena relación costo-beneficio, por lo que la empresa que la desee emplear no tardará en recuperar su inversión. Aunque no es la herramienta más difundida del mercado para diseñar sitios web, se debe reconocer lo potente que es, y la cantidad de objetos, componentes y atributos que ofrece al programador para que desarrolle este tipo de aplicaciones.

What do you dislike?

Es una herramienta privada, por lo que su uso está restringido a la compra de una licencia, para lo cual lógicamente, la empresa debe hacer una inversión. Pero lo cual es superado por los múltiples beneficios que ofrece. No es una herramienta muy difundida o conocida en comparación con otras, por lo que considero que le falta mayor difusión en el mundo de los desarrolladores de páginas webs. La integración con otras herramientas de Microsoft no funciona del modo esperado.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Es una herramienta que pueden usar tanto desarrolladores novatos como seniors. Su interface permite construir sitios web rápidamente. Como Licenciada en Informática y docente universitario he asesorado proyectos informáticos elaborados en esta plataforma, usándose en grandes empresas. Es fácilmente empleable en empresas de cualquier tamaño, desde pequeñas a grandes, incluso aquellas que dispongan de varias sucursales, dispersas en distintos lugares geográficamente distantes.

"Great way to have a team access files in one location"

What do you like best?

I like how it is a one stop shop to have a specific set of documents for your team to access. It is so much easier than emailing the team every time there is an update. This way, you can post a new version and just notify the team to go check the new update. I also like how you can have a calendar available for your team to review when due dates are for the files you are posting on the site. This helps in the team prioritizing the documents available.

What do you dislike?

Seems convoluted in the way the folders are arranged. Sometimes I find myself taking more time than I need to to find a file. What needs work is the file structure and making it easier for access. The process to checkout the file does not work sometimes properly, so you have to try again, or refresh the page. This ease of viewing a file needs improvement as well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend you know the exact name of the file before going into SharePoint, otherwise, you will be spending more time than needed looking for a file. Also, make sure to clearly indicate the version type so the next person checking out the file knows which one is the most recent.

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

There are certain files that are too large to send via email, and there can be multiple versions worked on on a particular day by multiple team members. This way, the user can upload a version they edited in the proper location and notify the team that the file is ready for review.
