Pros

The searchability feature is great. I also like the capability for multiple users to post documents and information.

Cons

Because I am not a Power User, I do not have access to some of the features. The people in my organization who set up our SharePoint site did not do well with the organization. When we search for documents, there is no rhyme or reason to how those documents come up.

N/A

After some infrastructure issues we are now moving the customers portal to a web based, SaS, simple task management tool.
Shared Point may be useful for large companies with good IT support but in our case I guess it would be a good move.

Pros

It seems to have all features and functionality you want, but it is not really easy to setup and get it working properly.
We were using SharePoint Portal as the main collab tool solution (both internally and also with customers).

Cons

All the config were done internally and although it works I guess it is too complex to setup and use.
I spend about 3 hours to setup the customer portal and upload the tasks (no easy way to import project templates).
Once imported it is also difficult to update the tasks and there is no easy way to track time.

Sharepoint as Collaboration Tool

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support
N/A
Pros

My company utilized Sharepoint both for document sharing and as a collaboration tool, particularly with allowing people to claim different tasks off of a shared spreadsheet. For those purposes, Sharepoint was perfectly adequate.

Cons

In terms of document sharing, it was no better than Box.com or Google Drive, with my organization moved to. In terms of collaboration, it also lags behind Drive. It also had a frequent issue where it would generate large numbers of e-mails to users; for example, it would resend every single post that a user had logged on one of its discussion board, flooding user e-mail and hampering employee productivity. It's possible this was an inaccurate setting on our end, but it was still often vexing and distracting.

I am an SVP with an IT support and services company that would qualify as an SMB. Microsoft Sharepoint is a considerable investment for smaller organizations but an amazing tool to have in your toolbox.

Pros

Cloud accessiblity, mobile feature access, soical networking integration/options, MS office integration, now it is much easier to brand then before, better security than in past editions.

Cons

Hard to use apps, Social networking is separated, It is difficult to deploy in a "small" environment and requires all of upkeep to maintain its level of usefulness.

Many companies use SharePoint in a lot of ways. You can use it for exchanging files with customers, as a training LMS (learning management system), for tracking workplace injuries, and more).

Given the cost, and the fact that you can use it in lots of ways, it's worth a thought, even if it's maybe not GREAT any any one thing.

Pros

Easy, flexible.

Cons

Not specially designed for any one thing.

Advice to Others

Not a bad thing to try for any number of reasons before paying lots of money for specific software tools.

Our company currently uses SharePoint 2010 and in the process of transitioning to a newer version. SharePoint 2010 is still a robust platform for any medium sized company that wants to develop a secure and functional intranet. With Microsoft's move to cloud-based hosting, going straight to SharePoint 2016 would be the best option in terms of cost vs maintenance.

Pros

-Widely known platform with easy to understand designer interface.
-Once a site template has been set, it is easy to build out multiple site structures within the collection.
-Workflows are easy to setup and can be modified quickly.

Cons

-SharePoint 2010 is still a bit static looking and is not the most effective platform for use on mobile devices.

Advice to Others

Still the best solution for medium sized businesses looking to improve collaboration, communication and tracking of tasks, goals, etc.

Good product if you are a Power User

Ease-of-use

N/A

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.

Advice to Others

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.

We use PowerPoint for much more than presentations. We find it is a good way for non-technical types to prototype screens and workflows. Then can even create navigation with Hyperlinks!

Menus keep changing between versions making it hard to find features.
