Great for storing business documents and team info

Pros

We use SharePoint to store all of our company data, including documentation for HR, Marketing, Sales, Recruiting etc. So easy to use and a one-stop shop for all of our documentation.

Cons

There is so much functionality that sometimes it is not used.

so easy to use

Pros

Share point is great for groups, I love how easy it is to set up and share with others.

Cons

There are several aspects of share point that I still have not figured out, like how it works in conjunction with the outlook calendar. For the most part it is great.

sharepoint review

Pros

just like the many others out there, sharepoint by microsoft is a sharing platform, what really make it standout from the rest is its functions and security. when in contrast with the sharing service provided by one of the search engine giants, sharepoint is more secured as only people with an outlook account can have access to whatever file it is you feel like sharing and to make things better and more soothing, not just anyone with an outlook account can access shared files, whoever is interested in accessing files shared by an administrator on sharepoint needs a lot of patience for approval, no approval simply means no access to desired files.

Cons

for new users who are not accustomed to office360, sharepoint might get overwhelming for them as getting around the platform with its many functionalities can pose to be a problem. Accessing of files can get cumbersome for people without an outlook account, a proble which should be solved by allowing unregistered people have a preview of the files that has been shared with them.

NOPE

There were just a lot of little annoyances that added up to a bad experience. It's not as good as other free software that allows people to collaborate.

Pros

A lot of people were able to collaborate on one platform, and we were able to save a lot of information in one place, accessible from everywhere.

Cons

I work at a funding agency, and we used SharePoint to have all of our subgrantees submit reports. It was overpriced for what it provided. It was always hard to navigate to our shared drive, unless you saved a direct link in your bookmarks - if you just went to the SharePoint site and tried to sign in, it would be nearly impossible to navigate to our shared site. It was painfully slow, and often malfunctioned, forcing the user to reload, sign out and sign back in, or try some other method. It was also frustrating to have to choose "edit in browser" or "edit in Word/Excel" - we had an Excel document we used for tracking grant outcomes, and a contractor who needed to work on it and didn't have Excel. She would edit in browser, but it doesn't have the full functionality, so she couldn't change text color. This meant I had to go in afterwards and redo all of her work in the correct color.

SharePoint Review

Pros

Makes file sharing to a large group of audience easier, and can host a variety of documents. Can be customized to match organization's branding guidelines.

Cons

Experienced issues with user management and getting access to people who are part of the organization. Not the best software to build engagement.

Review of Sharepoint

Pros

Easy to use and can restrict/ allow access depending on the individual which means there is a strong emphasis on confidentiality.

Cons

some processes can be complicated- i.e. creating a new folder requires multiple steps. Once Sharepoint reaches its "capacity" it leads to problems and can become more time-consuming to use certain features.

Sharepoint

Pros

If you share Microsoft Office documents, you should use Office 365, but what of all the other documents ? Sharepoint is the answer. This online platform lets you upload all of your tree structure online. Simple and easy access for all your co workers

Cons

The more people work on the same document the slower it gets, but you can manage all the rights if you are the administrator

SharePoint is great, if you use how it is meant to be used.

Overall, I can get it to do what I need.

Pros

Create lists of items and add a form for request or history keeping. Store data and files and share them with co-workers.

Cons

Can be somewhat confusing to develop without programming skills. Can be slowed down by storing too much data.

Streamlined document sharing within an Organization

Pros

Instead of having work files on different employee devices and collaboration between them relying on timely emails, Sharepoint allows an organization to upload and store files effectively under clearly labelled sections and sub sections for easy access whenever needed.

Cons

If a business looks to onboard onto Sharepoint, the first steps of creating an effective site map, creating the different folders and populating them with the appropriate files can be quite time consuming.

Allows for great collaboration

Pros

I first used this software at my current job and found that it was a great way for colleagues to store and share documents and information easily. Easily functions with other Microsoft Office features which is another pro. It works great when used in a larger company setting.

Cons

The cost is not worth if if you work in a smaller company. There are cheaper systems available that would easily meet one's needs

SharePoint is a Successful One-point Access Tool.

SharePoint is a great tool, which we use in an organization for sharing and storing files. The product allows many users in a firm to gain access to the different files shared by the admins. Its security is also guaranteed.

Pros

I like the ability of SharePoint where users can access various files in an organization at one point. That is, the administrator shares important organization files to this platform, and the employees gain their access instantly under one roof. SharePoint is easy to use, compared to other sharing platforms, and it is also very stable, with no bugs.

Cons

However, I find this item very expensive, not forgetting that not all firms that are financially stable. I wish the vendor could lower down the subscription costs. Again, SharePoint lacks a friendly user design, where its customization more so to the admins is also limited.

MS SharePoint Review

Very positive - great for building intranet, team sites and any type of tool an organization needs for collaboration.

Pros

I used SharePoint for years, the current version is the most intuitive version yet!! Easy to navigate. I especially like the new template you can use for communication and team site. Nice designs

Cons

Importing and exporting out of SharePoint into lists can be clunky, but the product has come a long way.
