Overall Satisfaction with MS SharePoint

MS SharePoint is being used by our entire organization to provide a centralized home for document sharing and collaboration. On a specific level, this has helped us with process documentation and version control on the many different important work products we have. One of my favorite features is the ability to concurrently edit documents with my colleagues. No more "v5.3_aa" again!
  • Document sharing
  • Collaboration functionality
  • File organization
  • Project management
  • Permissions - sometimes it's hard to engage people from other teams, or outside your organization. I find myself constantly granting and re-granting access to certain document for certain people.
  • Too easy to delete/move things. It may be beneficial if there were document owners who could "lock" things down a bit more. I've had entry level staff accidentally delete things before and it was difficult to get back.
  • Positive - can work on projects more quickly with fewer document versions floating around
  • Positive - less documents/large files being sent via email - changing the culture of our organization to work more efficiently
  • Positive - ease of access of content, especially during COVID-19 times, I haven't had any trouble accessing content on my computer or my phone.
Slack is not great for document sharing, but it does integrate with SharePoint and One Drive when we need to post links. Slack is better at the chat function though, which is definitely missed from SharePoint.

Do you think Microsoft SharePoint delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Microsoft SharePoint's feature set?


Did Microsoft SharePoint live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Microsoft SharePoint go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Microsoft SharePoint again?


You are working on a project plan with two other teams (5 staff total) and you need to all work from the same document (edit and review) and have access to other resources. MS SharePoint would have a folder for the projects where all the staff can easily access the various content pieces.

Less appropriate: You need to edit a video file or some other creative materials collaboratively (i.e. I do not think "editing" PDFs or Adobe Creative Files is easy. In these cases, I've still needed to download the files to my local machine, work on them, and then re-upload them to SharePoint).
