Overall Satisfaction with MS SharePoint

We use SharePoint internally to manage all of our team documents, reference information, communications, etc. We recently merged with additional offices across the country and have begun to set each of those offices up with their SharePoint instances. It allows us to manage communication and information sharing across the organization nationally.
  • Can access anywhere you have an internet connection on a computer, tablet, or phone.
  • Quickly find information you need.
  • Communicate and share resources/information across many teams.
  • Storage and sharing of large documents.
  • Sometimes file management is not as organized or robust as I'd like it to be.
  • Too easy for people to accidentally move files when operating with files synced to their desktop.
  • Search functionality in the new interface sometimes does not work as well as the traditional look.
  • Has given us cloud-based management of project files versus our previous network drive system.
  • Collaboration across interdepartmental teams in different geographic locations.
  • Search capabilities are limited sometimes by user skill and savvy.
MS SharePoint is a better option for our team as we use Office 365 across our organization. It allows us some integration, and was a more familiar interface for many of the users on our team. It met our security needs and standards for our parent company as well.
Sharing large amounts of information quickly across interdepartmental teams works very well, although, in that same instance, file management can quickly get to be challenging. We have not yet found a quick and easy way to share emails within SharePoint folders that might be relevant to a project when it is not an option to keep those emails in Outlook. Much of what we use SharePoint for is project-based work, primarily for the storage of project documents--it's sometimes a little clunky and unwieldy to search through files.
