Overall Satisfaction with MS SharePoint

Use is department-wide. It acts as a shared drive so that we all have access to important documents. This allows us to have instant access to documents we may need at a moment's notice. Therefore, we will not have to rely on others to get relevant documents when we need them. Plus, this ensures that the documents we need will be up-to-date.
  • Sharing documents
  • Editing documents simultaneously
  • Calendar of Events
  • Editing documents simultaneously - some excel file types are not supported and this causes some problems
  • a little slow
  • lack of organization
  • Streamlined file access across department
  • Information is distributed faster
MS SharePoint is stronger than Google Drive in most ways (organization, for example) but Google Drive has much better excel capabilities. So we do use Google Drive for many of our excel tables over SharePoint for this reason. For example, Google Drive excel spreadsheets allows multiple people to edit spreadsheets with drop down menus right in the application but SharePoint does not.
Large corporations/departments who need a shared drive but would also like some basic editing of documents simultaneously would benefit to this tool. You can organize using folders much like a folder on your desktop and the data provided next to each file will ensure you are always aware of who made edits last.
