What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the "Alert Me", which provides the ability to set an alert on a SharePoint folder or file when the content is either added or changed and that the alerts can be either… more»

How has it helped my organization?

One of the value adds from SharePoint is the version history of any given document, which when we first began using it was, I believe, ten versions by default and now it's gone to over one hundred… more»

What needs improvement?

If you're a legacy, long-term user of SharePoint, there are challenges moving forward to the newer user experience that works with groups. It is a complex migration process and there's a lot of manual… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

There are some aggressive discounts offered by Microsoft for organizations that are not for profit, which we are, and it makes it quite attractive to consider.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

In prior employment, I have utilized the on-premises deployment of SharePoint. However, with my current employer, we had discreet local file shares through network-attached storage that we migrated to… more»

What other advice do I have?

We have not yet migrated to the new user experience, but we have recently enabled some new user interface views just to make it look more modern. It provides a nicer alphabetical view of folder… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features for us are their document management list and hybrid forms. We also use third-party add-ons to achieve workflows and other recent apps.

What needs improvement?

One of the reasons why we don't recommend the cloud version of SharePoint is the cost. With the on-premise version, you pay for the license once. For the cloud version, there is a recurring fee. The truth is there are some places where SharePoint is pretty decent for the thing that it does. Microsoft has a very good product. It's difficult to find room for improvement because you can get add-ons… more»

What other advice do I have?

It's difficult to rate in general because there are so many different parts of SharePoint. As a personal collaboration, I would rate it as eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?

Let me start saying that you have two way of implementing Microsoft Office Sharepoint Server, on-premises or in the cloud. If you choose the cloud, the most valuable aspect of the solution is the fact that it doesn't require coding. You just need to configure it. You don't need to code before… more»

What needs improvement?

It would be nice if you could use it out of the box or have something with more CRM-like functionality. If there could be some sort-of out of the box free option within SharePoint that would be nice. It's not easy to manage projects on it. They should work to simplify this. Sharepoint has a… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

As a user of the solution, we pay a fee. The amount depends on the kind of office license a user buys. The fees are paid yearly. We have an enterprise-level agreement with Microsoft at this time.

What other advice do I have?

We use the cloud deployment model. In terms of advice, I'd say that the deployment model you choose depends on how big the company is. For a small company, a hundred or so people, the best thing is the cloud option. That way, you don't have to worry about building your own infrastructure. For a… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is the Communication Site. In the most recent version, it is much more user-friendly, and any user can maintain it, including changing the content or other small tasks. In the older version, users were dependant on the developers. This dependency can now be… more»

What needs improvement?

Many of our customers would like to see an OCR feature, so it would be very good to have this in a future release. For example, you have invoices that have been scanned and uploaded into the SharePoint document library. If you are attaching the metadata along with the particular document then it is… more»

What other advice do I have?

The suitability of this solution depends on the customer's requirements. If they have a basic requirement for document management, I feel that SharePoint is not very stable for this. However, the workflow is good and there are many other good things. It is a complete umbrella. If you have a good… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Some of my customers have opted to purchase OpenText instead, because of the additional features that it has.

What is most valuable?

The forms aspect of the solution, for example, the creation of surveys, is its most valuable aspect.

How has it helped my organization?

I couldn't name a specific improvement to our organization because of this solution.

What needs improvement?

The search feature needs improvement. I can never find the information I need when I use it. They need a well-implemented Wiki engine. What they have now doesn't really comply to what I would expect from a Wiki platform.

What other advice do I have?

We use the cloud deployment model of the solution. I'm not that big a fan of SharePoint, so there isn't too much that I really like about it. My advice to those considering implementation would be to really know for what purpose you would like to use the platform and not just install it and start… more»

What is most valuable?

The solution's most valuable aspects are its collaboration capabilities, its communications site and the innovation within the product itself.

What needs improvement?

The permission management features need improvement. The search functionality on the on-premises version is not very good. We brought this up with technical support, but they said there wasn't anything they can do. This needs to be improved in a future release. The solution could use integrated bots or some form of AI. There needs to be the capacity to share links. They do it already on the cloud… more»

What other advice do I have?

I'm a consultant, so I work with multiple deployment models. The product is very good. I'd recommend it to others. I'd rate it eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The solution is pretty easy to use for the most part.

What needs improvement?

I can't configure the current security I want. There are a lot of bots in it. Sharepoint doesn't integrate well with Oracle, and we use a lot of Oracle products at our company. Therefore, it makes more sense for us to go to Oracle instead… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The solution is free. We don't have to pay for licensing.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We're in the process of switching to Oracle right now. Soon we'll stop using Sharepoint, mostly because Oracle is easier to integrate for us.

What other advice do I have?

We're using the public cloud deployment model. I wouldn't recommend Sharepoint; I'm much more likely to recommend people use Oracle instead. It's more compatible and makes integration much easier because our company uses Oracle databases… more»

What is most valuable?

The solution's most valuable features is its document management. It allows sharing with external users and integrates well with Office apps and Microsoft Flow. The interface is okay for the type of work users do on it.

What needs improvement?

The licensing needs to be improved, especially when there are a lot of users. It's okay if there are a handful of users, but when there are 20 or 30, paying monthly for all of these licenses is difficult. The solution needs to enable better sharing capabilities between users and external users. Several users also have problems with linking their emails to their Microsoft account.

What other advice do I have?

I've been using the solution for four years. We use the public cloud deployment model. There's no on-premises deployment model. We are a Microsoft partner and typically work with small and medium-sized companies (about 50-80 employees). Normally I recommend this product. However, there are others in the market that could offer the same capabilities or the same features, but at the same cost… more»
