Microsoft SharePoint Is a Great App.

5.0 3 months ago

Comments: The software has a user-friendly interface and intuitive features that make it easy to navigate and perform tasks.

Pros:

The software has helped me a lot in sharing important documents and submissions easily and can be accessed easily by the end party. Overall, the software is well balanced, and it has great features.

Cons:

The software is excellent and meets most of my needs, but it could improve on some aspects, such as:  The modified folder doesn't have any choices to save my previous settings for each folder.  Another con is that if I open the notebook, there is no option to go back directly to the SharePoint interface. You need to go back to App Launcher and open from there, where it is very inconvenient if you are in a hurry to do things quickly.

Improvements can definitely make this easier to use!

3.0 3 months ago

Comments: This would be much better if it were more like Google Drive and easy to find things. With so many dropdowns and not knowing where to look, this is not the easiest program software to use.

Pros:

Sharepoint is great to upload documents in 1 place....

Cons:

I do not like that Sharepoint is so confusing to navigate. They can make it so much easier by having folders and showing the entire drive rather than trying to hunt around and find folders or items I may not have access to.

Comments: It's been effective so far. Although, the time we encountered an issue, the customer service rep was able to get it solved in due time.

Pros:

- Very easy to customize - It manages documents without error

Cons:

- It's a little bit expensive to set up. - It's also sometimes unresponsive when searching

Decent tool, however there is room for improvement

4.0 3 months ago

Comments: acceptable and decent tool, however there is still room for improvement

Pros:

what I like most is that it can work not only on a browser tab but also can be integrated into the Windows Explorer system of Windows OS

Cons:

what I don't really like is how the UI of Microsoft SharePoint on a browser tab is not great
