Cons
I am sure there is something that has room for improvement but nothing specific comes to mind.The con is that every year they are launching a new technology, and for a company like us, we get confused which version should be used.In the future, I would like to see more AI and machine learning technologies made available in libraries.Sometimes we have issues with instability and it crashes, which is something that should be made to work better.

SharePoint Designer is not releasing a new version. Version 2013 was the latest version. Now in 2019, we are still using the biggest version. It doesn't work properly anymore. Sometimes we experience issues, but there is no new version.It has a lot of bugs. It's also not very convenient. The UX/UI is not very user-friendly and not designed to be similar to other applications from Microsoft.It would be helpful to have the SharePoint Designer capabilities built directly into SharePoint itself, into the management page, so as to create an online version of it directly in SharePoint.The solution requires more web-based publishing. It would benefit from adding in more collaboration features as well.This solution could definitely be made easier to use.I am not sure how stable the solution will be once Microsoft stops supporting it.The solution is not scalable at all.I would like to be able to use SharePoint Designer without having to buy other third party programs.
