"There is zero technical support. I have to use Google to fix the issues myself.""Further development for SharePoint online would be ideal. However, I'm not sure if it's true that Microsoft will no longer develop SharePoint Designer in the future or not.""The solution is a bit complex. They should work to simplify it.""The web services aspect of the solution is very weak.""I believe Microsoft does not support Sharepoint on-premises. They only support Sharepoint on the Cloud. They should provide for both options and let the client choose their preference.""I would like to be able to use SharePoint Designer without having to buy other third party programs.""I am not sure how stable the solution will be once Microsoft stops supporting it.""The solution is not scalable at all."
