SharePoint Development using ShortPoint

2018-12-13

We use ShortPoint for the Intranet Portal, The Document Management System and Project Management System and soon

Pros

1- Delivery Time: ShortPoint drastically reduces the branding, design and development efforts required to build a state-of-art intranet.

Cons

Ealier, few components were not rendering in IE the same way it was rendering in Chrome or Firefox. But that was fixed later on

Simplified SharePoint site designs with ShortPoint.

2019-04-08

The technical and sales team have also been quite helpful, sometimes going beyond the call if i may add, as they assisted in the creation of an initial dashboard, which lead my team to educating themselves even more about REST api and other methods of pulling data.

Pros

through their assistance, we were able to create dashboards and undertake a couple of integrations.

Cons

As a result, a lot of my team would be mindful of which browser they're using when accessing sharepoint related content.

ShortPoint

2019-04-17

Pros

ShortPoint allowed us to bypass many of SharePoint's design limitations and allowed us to create a beautiful site with a simple, easy-to-use interface.

Cons

One thing that we wished it could accommodate better is bringing document library and list content types through to a page with full searching and filtering capabilities.

Awesome SharePoint Branding and Web Parts

2018-12-17

As a single SharePoint admin looking to roll out SharePoint Online to 11 worldwide offices of not so tech savvy users, I knew I had to make it easy to use & look good / branded. ShortPoint allowed me to do this faster and better than I could ever imagine.

Pros

Quickly build branded pages and dashboard.

Cons

Originally they did not have many examples on how to use the product, but now they have https://demos.shortpoint.com/ which lets you copy and paste entire designs and examples directly into your SharePoint pages.

Excellent product allowed us to brand our Intranet in a complete different experience with minimal amount of time.

Pros

Lowers the burden on IT from UX and UI perspective.

Cons

Minor issues related to css on how to customize the elements. There should be a possibility to add custom web parts inside ShortPoint section.

Pretty Fantastic Product

2020-01-24

OOB SharePoint webparts and functionality only offered so much control on design.

Pros

Ability to display information in entirely new ways and layouts CSS and screen flexibility that completely changes the ease of a basic sharepoint deployment Allows for a visual experience that is superb with minimal code required. Extra knowledge of HTML and CSS will go a long way to allow extra customizations

Cons

There are limitations when working with certain data types Updates to views require a refresh at the display layer.

Excellect Product-Worst Customer & Tech Support Service

2018-10-29

Tested trail version for evaluation of the product and drop it after some unprofessional emails been send out through Tech support.

Pros

Ease of Use Rich in Features On-premise deployment No Subscription model

Cons

Horrible Tech Support and Customer Service SLA is based as per there own convenience, even for a Customer who is Enterprise base organization, they don't offer value-added service. Support Ticketing system is 'Fresh Desk' where you submit your Ticket, and level of urgency is been determine by Shortpoint. No phone support. No Point of contact. Only an Online Ticketing system through that end user can communicate to them. Very Few employees, CEO and Tech support are the same people, sending communication through different emails.

Response from ShortPoint


Hi Irfan,

Thank you for downloading a Free Trial of ShortPoint and trying the product out. We're glad that you liked the product.

We at ShortPoint choose our customers very carefully, and ShortPoint decided not to onboard you as a paid customer at the end of the trial period.

We are very sorry to hear about your unusual experience with our customer support, despite providing you with Onboarding Sessions and multiple support calls.

We would like to highlight that we have one of the highest customer satisfaction rate in the industry and very large enterprise customers across the globe.

While we try to support our Paid customers under agreed SLAs, there could be certain requests from Free Trial users that do not fall under the SLAs.

If the requests are unrealistic and unjustified from our Free Trial users, unfortunately, we cannot support them, but inform the customer that this is outside the scope of evaluation.

Thank you.

Hi,

Thank you for your comments. ShortPoint elements can be connected to dynamic data sources such as SharePoint lists, RSS feeds, REST APIs and People's Search. For more information on how to connect ShortPoint design elements to back-end data sources, please visit https://www.shortpoint.com/shortpoint-connect/

Please feel free to contact us at support@shortpoint.com to schedule a training session with us and we will walk you through the process.

ShortPoint gets fast, great looking results

2018-12-13

Excellent - this product allowed me to complete a very challenging rebranding exercise in a very short amount of time. Without it, I wouldn't have been able to complete the project and would still be writing custom web parts using SharePoint framework. Customer support was also excellent. I logged an urgent ticket and had someone on a call within half an hour - and the support person really knew their stuff. Normal requests are answered within a few hours.

Pros

Most of their web parts can be connected to lists or libraries which is necessary as a license is needed to edit these web parts so using connected lists/libraries puts some control back into users hands.

Cons

Requiring a license to edit is a bit of a downer - wish there was some intermediate license or method for others to edit pages with ShortPoint elements on them without requiring the full blown license. Although you can add ShortPoint web parts to modern pages, you can't use the site customiser if your home page is not a classic page. Looking forward to the site customiser for modern pages - once that arrives, will really be pleased.

Could not be happier.

2020-11-01

I cannot fault it, the support has been fantastic – I often jump on your website and send some chat messages to your support team who are quick so answer any questions I have, and the 1 hour training session I had a few months back with [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] was really helpful. 10/10

Pros

So easy to use straight from the get-go, this ability to start using straight away saved me huge amounts of time designing and building pages in our new SP online environment.

Cons

Initially some components have been a bit buggy around themes but thats since been fixed.

Improved Access to SharePoint with ShortPoint

2020-04-16

ShortPoint has enabled us to create internal SharePoint sites that are user friendly and attractive for our multi-generational group of Associates. It has provided us with the opportunity to show how flexible SharePoint can be and how accessible for company-wide information that is important to all Associates. As a company, ShortPoint has been supportive from the time we purchased our subscriptions and all the way through development and learning how to use the software by being quick to respond when we had questions.

Pros

ShortPoint has an extensive group of features that are easy to understand and use with SharePoint Online.

Cons

The ability to embed html code or widgets into a ShortPoint widget would be a great feature to add.

ShortPoint is Awesome!!!

2018-12-19

The BEST and EASIEST tool around for SharePoint designing and making SharePoint more AWESOME.

Pros

The ease of use and the amount of features and the fact that they are continuously adding new features thus making ShortPoint better and better. i have looked at the other software available and they just do not compare to ShortPoint and with all the the features you get with it. AND the price of ShortPoint is also a winning factor. It really makes the SharePoint designer's life a millions times better and at the same time gives the user an amazing SharePoint experience.

Cons

The cheap price - just kidding. I love the product
