SharePoint designer workflows can be buggy sometimes without any apparent reason.Replication needs improvement.It is too heavy. MS should not have paid foreign coders dollars per each row of code. They wasted the stability and reliability in the end.​The support is the worst. It is bad when Microsoft support does not even know what to do and you have to tell them. Also, they take too long to solve a problem.​The product could be improved in a lot of way. It is so frustrating to get things to work as advertised.Using SharePoint is difficult.It will fully use your system resources.Annoyingly, many new Office 365 apps always end up being only US locale for the first year of their life. Microsoft needs to realise that most of their customers are not in the USA.
