    I like the fact that you are able to upload files very easily and also choose who is able to access specific folders.

    Cons

    I was always frustrated by the fact that if I accidentally clicked on the wrong folder or needed to return to a previous file, there wasn't a simple back button to do so.

    If you have a large IT department dedicated to setting up Sharepoint, I'm sure it's a very useful program and it has a lot of promise. It certainly operates easier than it did years ago.

    Cons

    For small businesses with a limited IT budget, it takes too much time to setup to be useful. It's very confusing and we ultimately stopped using it.

    We used this at our work to collaborate between two offices as our current system was not working well. I found it to be convenient to log on virtually and be able to access all the files at once regardless of what site I was at.

    Cons

    Tutorial/ Customer Support was not very helpful and it was nerve-wracking if you accidentally deleted something and needed to retrace it.

    I have been using this for quite some time and very satisfied with it.

    Pros

    A easy to use software to share documents with friendly GUI interface . Uploading and downloading of documents from the repository is easy and pretty quick with drag and drop option. It also maintain good document editing records with effective versioning mechanism. Editing or updating of records is also quick and pretty straighforward without much hassles.
    User access to certain important documents can also be controlled and it also have effective looging to track user activites.

    Cons

    The software costing is little higher and installation process can be further simlified.

    Reduces likelihood of errors by storing at any given time one version of a specific document. Maintains revision controls and ability to create workflows.

    Cons

    Checking in recently uploaded documents can not be done in batches. Individually need to assign attributes to each file manually. This can and should be streamlined to allow for better efficiency.

    SharePoint does a lot but doesn’t any one task exceedingly well. Its traditional strength as a collaboration platform has been surpassed by other modern offerings. The ability to leverage metadata and views remains a slight unique advantage. As an authoring platform (eg Wikis), SharePoint is truly showing its mileage and old age.

    Pros

    SharePoint, especially when bundled with Office 365, is great bang for bucks. No other collaboration platform offers tighter integration with MS Office on this planet (yet). For a Microsoft-centric organization running Active Directory (AD) and Exchange, SharePoint conveniently offers 20% of the features that 80% of end-users need.

    Cons

    Real-time collaboration unbelievably still lags behind G Suite. Recent releases have made rapid improvements to catch up, but lockout issues arise frequently. Versioning was a SharePoint’s strength few years ago. Box has surpassed SharePoint, both in terms of reliability and capabilities.

    SharePoint has been around since 2001 and gone through more than half a dozen major versions. It is unclear how committed Redmond is to SharePoint. Would OneDrive and Team one day eventually swallow SharePoint? That uncertainty undoubtedly casts a cloud over its longevity, especially when high user adoption costs are factored in.

    Decent document sharing and collaboration app

    Functionality
    Quality

    Value for Money
    Pros

    What we like the most SharePoint is how on each document level, folder, library or directory we can set permissions and decide on how much access each user can have and you can lock them down for only a select group of users as well. We can share and collaborate on a document just by using a link and we retain just one version of the document instead of multiple ones.
    The features and available choices for customization lets us create an app that’s tailor-made to fit to the needs of our business.

    Cons

    When there are bugs and glitches and the site goes down (which isn’t very often) we have no way of accessing the documents which is of course the downside of every cloud-based app.

    SharePoint is robust and valuable for our office, but it does take some getting used to in regards to managing documents and calendars.

    Pros

    There are a lot of features available with SharePoint, but the one I use the most is the Calendar feature.

    Cons

    It isn't the most user friendly document management software I've used.

    I would recommend this tool for any group that is looking for a go to source of truth for specific information that needs to be shared on a regular basis. Our team had SharePoint set up as their launch page and it stayed open and available all day long.

    Pros

    We used SharePoint as our central information center and communication tool for a team of about 35 people who needed to have a reference library of protocols, process and procedures so that everyone was on the same page and doing thing consistently. SharePoint proved to be an excellent tool for the purpose and more. Easy to use, fairly easy to administer and maintain. Can be linked to other resources as well.

    Cons

    The newer versions have addressed some of the editing issues we experienced with our first SharePoint site. I think the one thing that was difficult was getting the permissions set up for all the users. It can get tricky if you are not careful so you will want to make sure you map it out clearly before you start.

    I appreciated the ability to share documents and files with my colleagues online, without having to attach these files to emails. This minimizes the amount of confusion regarding which version is the most current, which can be quite a hassle.

    Cons

    I don't know if limitations were placed on my access to SharePoint, but it seemed to be difficult to navigate and utilize at times. When trying to manage files while using other internet browsers other than Internet Explorer, not all features were available unless I switched to Internet Explorer.

    Sharepoint is great tool for managing document access and transfer within the organization. It is easy to install as well as integrate with other microsoft apps.

    The licenses for the on-premise versions can be costly. It is best for small organizations to stick with the online and foundation versions.

    Pros

    SharePoint offers a number of options for users in our office to access shared documents that contain outlines of essential work procedures and template emails that are consistently used on a daily basis. This software has truly opened doors between not just our office, but other offices that we collaborate with. These connections have facilitated financial data sharing and report generation, which is particularly essential towards the end of our fiscal year.

    Cons

    At least as SharePoint is offered in our office, it only presents a limited number of accessibility options for the general staff to edit. A select number of users are granted access to change the appearance of the SharePoint site, and these same users control which sharing capabilities are exposed to the staff, which can limit the usability of the software. However, this is less of a software issue and more of a problem with our end of the equation.
