Sharepoint is a never ending money hole...you'll eventually throw in the chips and take the loss of your investment.

The whole platform is a slippery slope to Office365...starts out cheap and then gradually gets more expensive

Pros
It's fully customizable. You can embed your own website inside of Sharepoint and use it as an intranet. Virtually any feature you want to add can be built into the site.

Cons
The problem is it's not functionally complete out of the box. You need to pay a developer to customize the site and make it do the things you want....but then MS will just update it, breaking all the things you've built...so you fork out more development money to fix it.... It breaks frequently, virtually no support form microsoft.

I would recommend but we are trying to go a different route and see it that works.

Pros
It works well and is easy to use. It has a good uptime and I don't think we have ever really had problems with it. End users don't have any problems either.

Cons
The biggest con is the cost. For a much cheaper costs you can get the same thing. We use it for our intranet but we are switching next year to a cheaper alternative.

We use Sharepoint daily on my organization to track projects progress and share ideas overall. A typical scenario may be as simple as form to track IT requests and as complex as setting up a temporary Intranet while formal one is under maintenance or being migrated.

Pros
- Sharepoint is widely available which means that you can be effective with this tool regardless of where you work - Included with many Microsoft services subs - Very well documented and a plethora of tutorials is available - Quite flexible and can be used for almost anything, from Intranet sites and forms to document repos.

Cons
- While pricing is competitive it is not the cheapest option - Not everything can be stored on Sharepoint

SharePoint is great for a team environment in that people are able to see everything in one place.

Pros
Ability to view shared documents Upload calendars such as PTO Direct employees to view company SOPs Have a functional company library

Cons
The cost is relatively high for what you get. There are some cheaper solutions out there with a better value-add. Also, there are almost too many features and things can get lost in the weeds if you don't keep an eye out.

So far so good! I wish it could be a little cheaper... but that's the nature of the game these days.

Pros
Sharepoint is easily usable by just about any device you can think of. I wouldn't be suprised if you could start to use sharepoint on smart fridges.

Cons
SharePoint can do many things, but speed isn't always where it shines. it will often take quite a while for documents to update, especially if you have a slower internet connection.

a great storage that can work as an LMS

Used weekly for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

We use to it to store all of our content and it makes it cheaper for us than having to purcahse an LMS.

Pros
the great thing with sharepoint is that it can serve as an LMS for organizations that don't have the funds to purchase one. It's a great place to organize content and to make it functional for multiple departments.

Cons
It can be hard to use and can get quite crowded if you don't optimize it correctly. It is best to use in conjunction with an admin to make sure that people don't just add random content as it can be hard to manage.

Internal Library

Used weekly for 2+ years
Reviewed 2018-03-14
Review Source: Capterra

Easy online library for our employees. Also! It will link into CRM, so it frees up a lot of storage space there (for a lot cheaper).

Pros
It can help answer a lot of common questions that our employees have. We use it like an online library (internal only). So we've put all our training documents there as well as product info and employee handbook, etc.

Cons
We didn't have a firm plan when it was implemented and too many people had access so it turned into a massive info dump. So we have a lot of garbage data to clean up.

This is one of the best way to share docs or any other files with in or out side your company, Know what's happening in your organization by following sites, be upto dated on the tasks in the sites you follow. Search for any file easily, we have thousands of files and sharepoint can help you get the file instantly. You can add permissions to any file in the drive.

1. Better file distribution 2. Collaborative editing capabilities 3. File storage and sharing

Pros
To begin with, I like everything about SharePoint-from design all the way to interface. For that reason, SharePoint is a user-friendly software since it has a simple interface. That way, you only need to get the right tutorials or training in order to work like a pro with it. SharePoint is one of the best collaboration tool that we incorporate in our agency. With SharePoint it is easy to have slide shows and web sharing. That way, it is easy to share files within our corporation. Last but not least, I like SharePoint since it integrates with other vital platforms that we incorporate at workplace.

Cons
So far the only issue that I have is pricing. Microsoft should offer SharePoint at a favorable cost estimation to entice prospective customers.

Overall, this is a go-to product if you are already a "Microsoft Shop". This is a better product with a more familiar interface. It is also easier to make professional documents for public showing with its rich customization features

Pros
- People from different locations can work together on live documents. - Conveniently integrated other MS products and with familiar MS interface - more powerful than Confluence (we have both) - Advanced search is powerful - A go-to document management tool for small to big businesses

Cons
- Cost. For big enterprise, cost is not an issue as this is included in o365 subscription cost. For for small to medium size business, Sharepoint Online cost can be a bit expensive. Small business might be better to use Confluence for Value for Money - user interface, if you are not on the latest Sharepoint, interface can be an issue as it was a bit dated (upgrade to the newest version to get the modern look)

As with anything, the price is always a concern but the value here is good. My only other concern is some slight downtime issues with the cloud-hosted service. Nothing severe but any interruption is unwelcome.

Good features for internal business applications

Used daily for 1-2 years
Reviewed 2019-02-05
Review Source: Capterra

It is better to look at more cost-effective solutions for hosting simple solutions, unless the cost is within your budget and you can afford dedicated admins.

Pros
This was a good solution for moving the team's internal communications and document storage onto, which made it accessible anywhere with internet. Moving things off the local server not only made access easier, but also more secure. With notifications for all the check-ins and check-outs, you have a clear record of who has made changes and when.

Cons
It is probably too costly for a small business that is only going to use its out-of-the-box features. Training for both the administrators and the users is definitely needed if implementing a Sharepoint solution

I have had the best experience with MS so far. In my opinion, is one of the best tools to create a cloud based file repository with easy and secure access, even though its not the cheapest one.

Pros
What I liked the most about Sharepoint is that you manage it in the way you most like it, It is a very versatile tool which, has proven to be extremely compatible with most of the needs of any kind of company out there, in which, you need to share files among multiple users and devices. I love that the files can be dragged and dropped. And, also, being backed up by Microsoft is a plus.

Microsoft sharepoint online is available on premise and on the cloud.Microsoft SharePoint lets you set up team websites, track projects, and manage documents. Sharepoint has features like site metrics viz page visits ,popular documents etc, which come in handy. The drag and drop works at its best in sharepoint. When one creates a website, one can add a variety of features to customize ones team site including tasks, calendar, document libraries, mailbox , bulletin boards, and contacts. One can also personalize the layout and color scheme of ones site and add ones company's logo. Microsoft has made an iOS app available for sharepoint. Similarly android and windows phone apps will be available soon.

Cons
For basic no frills document management there are many economical tools available in the market. Sharepoint is for enterprise level customers.
