    After being recommended Salesforce, we decided to try it out. We liked the organization it provided but we needed something tailored towards non-profits.

    Cons

    We are still in the beginning, so, we decided to see what other products we could get for a cheaper price.

    Allows you to get a full snapshot of our customers, such as activity history, communications, and recent discussions. This platform allows real-time of exchanging data through chat and screen sharing features. Streamlines your business by reducing time and effort on unnecessary leads.

    Cons

    It would be a nice feature if tasks and events could be synced into my google calendar, rather than go into an app to find my information. This software is more expensive than others on the market, but Salesforce is a great company to work with fulfilling our needs.

    Really enjoyed this system for sharing training, submitting documents in out training teams and for communication in groups much like Twitter!

    Cons

    I wouldn't say this is a Salesforce issue, but the company I was with when we used it. We didn't use it to its capacity and the company didn't train the employees on it enough or market it enough. I felt like it was an amazing tool that wasn't be utilized enough.

    So easy and it works with other apps really well. It's a great way to reach out to others who are within your work's workgroup.

    Cons

    Unless I missed privacy setting, it would be lovely to know others can't see messages posted directly to a specific co-worker and a person working at another company.

    I would recommend this product although I would still prefer the non-cloud based sales force over this product

    Pros

    This product gives you the ability to manage everything virtually while keeping all the great features a regular Sales force application brings. Its extremely user-friendly and easy to learn.

    Cons

    Sales Force community cloud can be slightly on the slower side at times and there are some bugs that hamper the true potential of the application from time to time as well.

    Pros

    Article management is robust, and allows for a lot of fine control on whats displayed, in both a wysiwyg editor, and jumping into the underlying HTML. Visual editor makes putting together the pages themselves very easy

    Cons

    Segmenting off articles between an internal and external is difficult to impossible. Any support issues go through India based agents, who constantly want phone calls and screenshares, and dont seem to know the product that well.

    Pros

    Very customizable. I love being able to set up and add to the page. Looking forward to learning more about the details of this software.

    Cons

    Takes practice to learn the software as there are many features offered. Also not the most appealing webpage to look at.

    A little clunky to set up initially. Always a good idea to have a consultant for Communities when initially setting up the system.

    Value for Money
    Pros

    Community Cloud makes it quick and easy to put a basic site together that has access to your Salesforce data. There are several pre-defined template options + multiple out of the box widgets that make it possible to get something up and running quickly. A branding editor allows basic changes to the site's colors, logo etc. Access to CSS allows for greater customization.

    Cons

    Understanding how to work with the Community Builder takes some time and practice. Particularly with understanding how to create new pages, grant access to those pages and the different nuances between setting up pages in different ways. You can grant access to different content based on audience but managing those options can be confusing especially as your site grows more complex. The navigation menu, the pages, the page variations, and the audiences all work together with the Salesforce security model to determine what a user sees. Unfortunately this means there are a lot of places to check when something isn't quite right.

    Pros

    "Ease of use" is way too easy and is pretty handy for our users to adapt to this. Accelerators provided by Salesforce helped us understand this feature deeply.

    Cons

    Salesforce should do a better job in the area of customer support. Most of the times when I have questions about this topic - I prefer to search in the community rather than logging a ticket with Salesforce because of the tier structure they have. It takes days to get the issue resolved by Salesforce wherein someone from the Salesforce community will respond in few hours if not minutes.
