Overall Satisfaction with SharePoint Designer

We use SharePoint Designer in the IT department. It is used primarily to edit/create page layouts, display templates, master pages and css.
  • Integrates very well with SharePoint, allowing you to change page layouts, display templates and css.
  • Very easily allows you to create/change workflows.
  • Would like the design view to come back, so I can see the changes I have made without having to preview them on my page.
  • Easily create workflows
  • Easily create custom pages
I have not used any other products. SharePoint Designer is what I use on a daily basis.
SharePoint Designer is very well suited for designing/modifying workflows. It is very easy to use for this purpose. I also find it easy to create page layouts and display templates, which if used together with search queries and content queries, can take the place of having to create web parts.

2 - Programming
2 - SharePoint Designer is most easily used by programmers, but can also be used by designers and sometimes less technical staff for tasks such as creating workflows.
  • Workflow design
  • Page Layouts
  • Display templates
  • Style sheets
It is a helpful tool that we use every day.
