Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"It has helped us with storing all the documents, which means that people are not going to intervene. There is a way of extracting knowledge within documentation and tracking it. There are knowledge assets for where documentation is stored, indexed and searchable through SharePoint.""The workflow feature is valuable because it enables us to cascade responsibilities.""For any organization with more than one person in it, if they are trying to organize things to let people in the company know what others are doing, then this solution is good for them.""This solution has helped us with the categorization, organization, management, discovery, and delivery of program and project related information.""The most valuable features are the Integrations, web site, and search.""The online editing capabilities, file sharing, auditing, information security, ease of solution management, and the easy user adaptation to the platform are the most valuable features.""The most valuable features are the collaboration and sharing."

More SharePoint Pros »

"The most valuable feature of this solution is the communication events.""The integration with Teams is the biggest value for us. In fact, it has only become more valuable now that it has integration with Teams. Teams allows you to stream, so that's good.""The design of the solution is its most valuable feature.""It's really easy to use the solution.""The initial setup was simple and straightforward.""The user interface and the way we can share and search information are the most valuable. It is very easy to use."

Cons
"Search can be improved a lot because we are always trying to compare it with Google Search. Beyond that, it would be helpful to tag the documents.""Workflow is something that can become more intelligent.""I would like a simpler, more cost-effective solution for connecting data sources with workflows and BI tools, or data mining tools.""This solution would benefit from the implementation of enhanced online forms and template development capabilities.""The areas of this solution that need improvement are the relationships between lists, cross-site web parts, and page-building tools.""The way to change the version of the files in SharePoint should be improved. The method of synchronizing files from local to cloud can also use improvement.""The workflow engine cannot support the business needs."

More SharePoint Cons »

"This solution would be improved if it was well integrated with other communication applications.""The solution must be able to stream by itself, without integration, the same way that you are able to do it on Facebook Live, Instagram, etc. Streaming must be embedded into it.""Yammer should be able to integrate with Microsoft products, such as Outlook.""We tried to integrate into SharePoint, but it was not really efficient.""The product seems to just add to the complexity of using existing tools.""The way you want to control the communication could be an issue. It depends on what kind of company you are. We are a public company, and there are some regulations that we need to comply with. Its ease of use can be an issue for a company because anybody can subscribe and use it. There are many competitors that are overlapping. Since Microsoft bought Yammer, it tends to be in the shadow. It is not put in the front from the service perspective."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The pricing works for us.""For this type of solution, it is not wise to buy it without Software Assurance."

"I don't know about the pricing. Now that Microsoft has bought Yammer, it should be a part of our subscriptions for Office 365."
