For the price (cheap cheap cheap), Microsoft Sharepoint does what you expect it to. You essentially build a small network with other users and use the platform to manage tasks, to-dos, documents, etc. I'd recommend this for a group project - maybe back in college - and wouldn't recommend using it ...

 The uses are endless!

SharePoint has been an essential file tracking solution for us but the uses are up to your imagination. We use it to create shared lists that can be updated to track progress, and file statuses. We also use sharepoint to host images for use with our G Suite email signatures. I could go on and on.

A standard collaboration platform

28/02/2017

For the price (cheap cheap cheap), Microsoft Sharepoint does what you expect it to. You essentially build a small network with other users and use the platform to manage tasks, to-dos, documents, etc. I'd recommend this for a group project - maybe back in college - and wouldn't recommend using it for large scale professional tasks beyond presentations. Customer support, like all Microsoft products, is excellent - you can chat a technician for help very readily.

Pros

Very affordable. Easy to get help.

Cons

Not good for advanced task and project management.

SharePoint in higher education

24/02/2017

Within the community college environment, there is a high demand to make large quantities of information available to both staff and students. SharePoint is one tool that offers our institution that capability. We use it for internal repositories, college committees, resources, online forms, and a whole lot more. The ease of use makes navigation easy as well as the ability for all employees to upload data. Overall, a pretty solid product.

Basic tool for easy file sharing

24/02/2017

SharePoint is not easy to use or understand set up or functionality of the system. Things that you think would be straightforward never are. Formatting sites is easiest to do in SQL code as opposed to any other type of design even when using their design tool. The design is not intuitive.

Pros

Easy file sharing platform

Cons

Difficulty in setting up SharePoint site

Great Power Requires a Deep Learning Curve

23/02/2017

Sharepoint's versatility as a document management and storage tool addresses many needs across the organization. There's site building, communities, analytics and a host of other capabilities that far exceed my objectives and knowledge. Which is the biggest issue that I have: I know what my objective is and I know what I need to do but the learning curve is very high for even the most basic of functions. I understand that creating dashboards and pages according to the Sharepoint paradigm requires some reasonable amount of research and learning, but processes such as checking out documents to edit and editing permissions to objects should be more clear and intuitive. In addition, it may not come as a suprise, but be sure to use Internet Explorer when using Sharepoint; certain features will simply not work in other browsers. Be prepared to do your homework when you need to complete a project using the tool. You'll get there, but it may take more time than you originally expected.

Pros

Powerful and versatile tool that address a variety of intranet site building and document management needs.

Cons

High learning curve. Not very intuitive. Basic functions and navigation should be simpler.

Recommendations to others considering SharePoint

If you're already invested into the Microsoft ecosystem then Sharepoint makes a lot of sense. I would also recommend looking into the Google suite of applications.

From easy to all

10/02/2017

Sharepoint is tool that lets you do easy but yet very powerfull apps and websites, but once you learn the easy things you are just starting to figure out how powerfull this tool is. The only nitght mare is that is in continous development and this turns me a little bit confused some time.

Pros

It is very powerfull and lets you customice the management of teams and organisations

Cons

Support and help is confusing. And new developmens come to play when maybe tjey are not welcome

Great when set up properly

09/02/2017

My advice to SharePoint users is pay someone to set it up for you, dont assume its an out of the box tool like Word where you install it and you start working immediately.

Easy to Use, great access to everyone

02/02/2017

SharePoint is one of the best features of shared folders whom will have access to. Everyone can have access to view documents and reports when necessary to complete the task. Ease of use is when heading to a meeting/ phone conference, employees will have electronic copies via SharePoint.

If you are a developer you can develop custom functions for sharepoint which makes it far more extensible.
