Great collaboration tool

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: We have done quite well with the tool.
Little by little we have been using more and more functions.
It has helped a lot with the backups and the rotation of personnel that are in the organization.

Pros:

We managed to unify in a single platform the management of business documents. It also gives us a good amount of space, 1TB in total, independent of storage per user.

Cons:

Collaboration with third parties still seems a bit complicated to me, we have had some problems with the access of external collaborators and we have to be aware of the permissions.

MY CANDID EXPERIENCE USING MICROSOFT SHAREPOINT

4.0 last month New

Comments: It's been effective so far. Although, the time we encountered an issue, the customer service rep was able to get it solved in due time.

Pros:

- Very easy to customize - It manages documents without error

Cons:

- It's a little bit expensive to set up. - It's also sometimes unresponsive when searching

SharePoint, a good addition to 365, but not the best out there

3.0 2 months ago New

Comments: Fair, it was easier to adjust to this platform but lacks the features we are looking for

Pros:

Able to collaborate with teammates easily, low education barrier, editing features were good

Cons:

Not a nice looking UI, tracking changes is not efficient, and it could be organized nicer to show progress of certain files

Microsoft SharePoint for government

5.0 last month New

Comments: I have used Microsoft SharePoint for multiple years and it has enhanced our organizations productivity. It has made it easier to collaborate, share files, and organize pertinent information for our staff.

Pros:

How easy it is to create SharePoint sites. Prior to SharePoint, our intranet was managed by our IT department. This created challenges when you needed to update or change things on the site. Moving our Intranet to SharePoint gave us the ability to manage our intranet ourselves. It is very easy to create SharePoint sites and manage them. You don't need to know how to code websites.

Cons:

There really isn't anything to dislike about SharePoint. It is a great product for any business.

Simple, effective, but ensure you understand other elements of 365 first

4.0 2 months ago New

Comments: Very simple to use and configure, there is little you can get wrong. But lesser tech minded people will use it incorrectly which can cause a lot of issues.

Pros:

Lots of controls, clean layout, native integration with others Windows products makes everything very streamlined.

Cons:

Other elements of 365 (e.g. 365 groups, Intune & Entra) will affect things like permissions etc. Be wary of which groups can access files, as you may find some users have more access than anticipated.
