Pros

As a new user I’ve had an excellent experience. Tech support is very helpful, and the resources available under the Help tab are very helpful.
My overall experience has been great. I always get fantastic customer service when i call the help desk.
I like that the portal is so easy to use and I appreciate how it has grown over the years.

Pros

Their customer service is outstanding and the product continues to develop and improve.
My favorite thing about using any platform is the elimination of paper. BoardDocs has been a great tool for its ease of accessing documents as well as how they are stored and listed.
Overall the transition to BoardDocs was seamless. I love using the program and would recommend to anyone considering a transition from paper to digital.

Cons

Many of our users have a hard time finding things and it is mainly because they have to click quite a few links to find something and they get lost.
I struggle to come up with this, but at the moment it is still difficult for some of my board members to log on, but enhancements are coming this year to allow for touch id log on.
There's not too many drawbacks to this software. It can sometimes be a bit difficult to navigate the actual classification of materials when uploading them into the portal.

Cons

I don't know that there's anything I dislike about the software other than a couple of quirky things mostly because it's a cloud-based program.
Difficult and inconsistent path to finding agenda for meetings from month to month. Reduces transparency of College functions—seems designed to do that.
By using this program it cuts the amount of time literally in half for doing the Board Meeting Agendas.
