A great tool for collaboration

What do you like best?

Pretty easy to navigate (always depend on how it is built). Easy to upload, edit and remove documents. Again depends on how it is customized, it can be made very colorful and pretty. I havent had any incidents regarding data lost or replaced, but I have heard other people that had some

What do you dislike?

I havent found out a way to lock documents, sometimes people add a few duplicated ones. I have had incidents that people come in and edit documents and accidentally added a duplicated one. From time to time we have to maintain the site by doing data cleanup. Internet access is another problem. You cannot upload, update or make changes to the files without internet.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Since it is a great tool for collaboration, I do recommend it for office use. I'm not sure what it goes in terms of pricing, but almost every business uses it anyway. I am also not ad administrator, so I have no idea how you can build and customize it.

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

we use it for pretty much everything. People seem to prefer it over our shared drive. The best benefit is that as an administrator, you can grant access to certain people and exclude others. The only disadvantage I have had so far is it depends on network, same as other cloud- based tools. You need very stable network, whether at home or office, to get access and to use the site.

Lots of features but can be complex to setup well

What do you like best?

Sharepoint has lots of built features, security and settings to create an internal intranet or customer facing website. Plus it has various add-ons available on the MS Store site to allow new or specific features to be added to suit your business requirements.

We have as part of our Office 365 subscription and ties in nicely with all the other Microsoft tools, websites etc.

What do you dislike?

The complexity of setting up a Sharepoint site makes it harder to achieve a 100% suitable solution. Plus the built in designs are a little basic and some content parts require additional plugins like Silverlight which isn't on many devices.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Sign up to a trial for Sharepoint Online and see if it can do what you want. Check the MS Store for Add-Ons to see what may solve your problem and associated cost. To make it easier to look good and add extra content easily check out ShortPoint.

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

We moved our internally developed intranet site to SharePoint to allow faster changes and better security/access to certain information. With a few add-ons it will also provide additional features to help our staff get information quicker, or allow creation of workflows to automate certain tasks.

This is a team environment, but it gets a little crowded.

What do you like best?

Love the ability to create the unique environments for dedicated teams all with access to the suite of Microsoft O365 tools. Great sharing ability, with team members or visitors. Permissions are feature packed and simple to set up. Syncing document libraries have never been easier and work just like OneDrive file syncing. So many options, so many ways to customize and make unique to your team.

What do you dislike?

Customizing the code is frustrating; I personally think the out-of-the-box design is horrid, and think it absolutely necessary to customize the interface. So get out SharePoint designer or Visual Studio, because without that you have no real option to modify the appearance. Sure you can change the theme, to another theme that practically looks the same with a few slight modifications. Also, the search function is always troubling. Often requiring changes to the search schema and profiles in the root admin; this is a pain in the backside.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think it is a great tool when used properly. I would suggest that you research some other options until they make the design interface much more intui9tive to control; unless your a web developer with the time to manage this.

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

Team organization and project management. The ability to work and share files with smaller more deliberate groups.

Document Sharing via SharePoint

What do you like best?

I like that it serves as a central source for teams to store all of their documents and data that they are working on. It makes it easy to share documents with other members of your team without having to email them and have them get lost in a cluttered inbox.

What do you dislike?

Finding a document on SharePoint can sometimes be a task if you don't know exactly where it is because all the folders get cluttered and the search functionality isn't always the best tool.

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

We are using SharePoint as a document sharing platform for current and past work that has been done for various projects. I find it useful having just joined this new team to be able to go back and look at previous tasks that are similar to mine to get a feel for how to go about completing them and having examples to look back at for formatting and what information needs to be included.

SharePoint The Software for Teamwork

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.

A solid project based website tool

What do you like best?

SharePoint provides an easy to assemble and navigate template for any project website, which allows a project team to have a centralized point of data, communication, and other information. The adaptability of the program allows it to be fit to purpose for specific project needs.

What do you dislike?

The search function could use definite improvement. If you don't know specifically how to find what you are looking for through the various menu options, the search function is not nearly as helpful at getting you there as it should be.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are easy to find guides, manuals, and help resources online. If your company, for example, outsources its information technology department, it will likely be more timely to search for solutions yourself rather than wait for someone possibly a continent away to help you.

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

It provides universal access to critical project information, which has proven beneficial to our workshare efforts by providing access to the same information for offices located across the globe. Emailing massive files across multiple time zones is painful, and getting the necessary local network file access to other offices is an IT nightmare. SharePoint provides a solution to these issues.
