SharePoint Initial Setup

The initial setup was very complex. We had to keep in mind all of the backup solutions. It is kind of like remodeling a kitchen. You must think of all of the parts, the architecture, the electricity, the air flow, etc. View full review »

Initially, I was only involved in the setup of the document management portion of our site. I found it very user-friendly and easy to configure. Since then, I have been involved in the setup and maintenance of a second site from scratch. Although certain aspects have been quite easy to configure, I experienced a lot of difficulty when working with user permissions and content types. The content types were difficult to configure initially. When I need to edit or update certain properties, I could not determine where, or how, to change them. We eventually decided to remove them from our implementation. View full review »

A partner initially installed it. That was the start of our use of SharePoint. I believe there was a lack of information or a lack of knowledge on the part of the external party that initiated this project. As our internal IT department has improved, the setup of SharePoint - we migrated to a new version - has improved. View full review »

The setup of this solution is complex. There are SharePoint deployment architecture scenarios, and sometimes the C-level deciders underestimate the complexity of it. You have to know SharePoint very well. View full review »

The initial setup was straightforward for sure. I didn't see any complexity in it. The implementation took about three-and-a-half months. View full review »

The initial configuration of SharePoint was very easy. The configuration, training, and communication with the users took less than two months. View full review »

It seemed easy enough. The one issue I had was setting up a project portal where we wanted to implement a number of SDLC Templates via SharePoint. This was a couple of years ago, but the integration of a legacy Microsoft forms product was not very clean or adequate. It looks like the previous tool has been replaced with Microsoft Forms. I haven't had a chance to use this product yet. View full review »

The initial setup was fairly complex, but that may just be our environment. A fair amount of design and consolidation needed to go into it. View full review »
