Overall Satisfaction with MS SharePoint

We use it as a document repository across the organization for every department. It is also used for its calender's for stuff like a vacation calendar for employees, or who is on call for each department. It also keeps a version history for every document so we can keep track of edits. This all helps us keep ISO compliant.
  • Keeps documents up to date for everyone
  • Lets us be ISO compliant
  • Calendar management is easy
  • Editing documents is a pain
  • Only works correctly in the Internet explorer browser
  • Very slow and annoying credential checking
  • It makes us ISO compliant which lets us bid and execute government contracts to get more business
  • It takes much longer to do document control then it should thus wasting people's time
This is basically just a me too product that does not work very well. I would recommend almost any other alternative based on my experiences. All it offers is an authenticated file directory. The version history and collaboration are so arduous to use it is not worth the time. I think Google Drive or OneDrive (another Microsoft product) are much better suited.
This is basically the equivalent to having Google Drive, Dropbox, or one drive, just at a bigger scale that does not work as well. Basically collaboration is non-existent and very hard to use. You must manually check out the document, edit, save, and check back in. Plus it only works for certain file types well. Using visio diagrams is a pain. There are much better alternatives.
