Overall Satisfaction with MS SharePoint

We utilize SharePoint across the organization for collaboration, file storage, and custom apps. Teams use SharePoint sites as their landing page to advertise their services and points of contact. Many teams utilize forms and SharePoint workflow to intake work and/or initiate & track business processes. Teams, departments, groups, and projects also utilize file storage and sharing capabilities for collaborative efforts and information sharing.
  • SharePoint is a great file storage tool for collaborating and sharing documents.
  • SharePoint allows business users to create collaborative efforts without having to have vast technical knowledge.
  • SharePoint allows for the easy creation of dynamic portals that can pull information from numerous sources and present in numerous formats.
  • The native SharePoint permissions model could be made to be simpler.
  • Development techniques to extend base SharePoint functionality could be simpler and more examples would be nice too.
  • More rendering options and controls are always welcome.
  • SP made it easy for almost any user to share information with others quickly and easily.
  • SP is a work intake and simple business process workflow engine for many tasks and processes across our org.
  • SP is a better place to store our business documents rather than simply using shared drive storage.
There are many tools in the collaborative space and SharePoint is a solid choice among them. The deep integration to Microsoft tools and O365 makes it a good choice for any company that is already invested in the Microsoft suites; better than the others in that respect.
SharePoint is great for creating simple dynamic web portals for team, project, and even cross-organizational collaborations. It allows average business users to create useful forms, lists, libraries, and portals for collaborations. I recommend an SP site for every project, effort, and team - they are lightweight and easy to create and maintain (and delete if desired).
