Overall Satisfaction with SharePoint Designer

We are using SharePoint Designer to customize SharePoint sites, and developing and deployment of custom solutions on SharePoint. It's the best tool for designing site pages and developing workflows. We are resolving business requirements of creating different levels of approval workflows and providing custom solutions.
  • Customization of SharePoint.
  • Deployment of workflow solutions.
  • Tool itself needs improvement as it sometime crashes.
  • SPFX page modification.
  • Business satisfaction in customizing things.
  • Cost-free when you have on-premise environment.
These products are very good alternatives to SharePoint Designer but SharePoint Designer stacks up when you are using it for on-premise SharePoint environment.
Support is good from Microsoft. They are quite responsive when we raise a ticket but SP Designer support will be ended by Microsoft in the near future as they have got new techs like PowerApps and Flow to achieve the same functionality SP Designer does and even more than that.

SharePoint Designer is well suited to develop custom workflow solution and deploy on SharePoint sites. It is also used to customize site master pages and template modification along with custom search.

It is not suited for designing site pages and for developing highly customized solutions, as it will crash.
