We performed a comparison between SharePoint and Slack based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Enterprise Content Management solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"I do like the collaboration around documents. The versioning history has proven useful in some instances as well."
"The most valuable features of SharePoint Online are content management, document management, and approval processes. Additionally, there are a number of features that provide integration with multiple Office services and external services."
"The online editing capabilities, file sharing, auditing, information security, ease of solution management, and the easy user adaptation to the platform are the most valuable features."
"We can now share to team members by MS Teams and assign planners to follow and update statuses in a single platform."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to easily build intranet sites for communicating within teams, storing documentation, product information, pricing policies, updates on product infrastructure, and other related news."
"What I like about SharePoint is that they keep up with a lot of updates, and they bring out new features. I also like that the system is integrated with the Microsoft 365 suite of apps."
"No code and low code, scalable, and stable collaboration platform. Straightforward to set up. Its support system is good and offers fast issue resolution."
"SharePoint has an option where you can open files on the browser, whereby more than five people can make amendments to one Excel online file."
"Slack helps me to read bulk messages."
"The product has the ability to scale."
"The product is user-friendly."
"When we work with a platform like Slack, we can have one source without merging different document versions."
"The huddle feature is valuable to me."
"Slack offers several valuable features. Firstly, they have a message deletion feature, which is now available in other software as well, but Slack was the one who introduced it in enterprise solutions."
"One thing I like about Slack is the ability to change the color of Slack. It depends on my mood. When I'm having a bright day, I just change the background color of my Slack, which is nice."
"I like Slack's notifications. It is more user-friendly and pleasing than Teams."
"SharePoint’s scalability could be improved."
"The initial setup is complex and has room for improvement."
"Document management and the ability to easily integrate single sign-on (SSO) are areas for improvement in SharePoint."
"Integration needs to be more straightforward, particularly with Azure. SharePoint also needs a more comprehensive introductory course for users."
"The way to change the version of the files in SharePoint should be improved. The method of synchronizing files from local to the cloud can also use improvement."
"We'd like to be able to upload from MS Excel to deploy tasks and use drop-down lists to collect further information."
"We do sell Hyland OnBase, which is probably a competitor to SharePoint and does a lot more. In our own organization, we haven't had a need for it, but certainly, for our customers, we are finding that to be a better fit. In terms of the technical reasons for that, I'm not involved much on that side, so I can't give specifics, but there is certainly room for them to improve or add on certain features that clearly are not available in SharePoint, but they are available in Hyland OnBase."
"SharePoint Online could improve the user interface and when modifying any of the user interfaces can be challenging. Additionally, there are challenges with the detail in the analytics user interface and the overall customization could improve."
"I think Slack could add additional features without making the solution slower or more difficult to use."
"There could be a read function so that when you send a message, instead of the other person having to add a reaction, you know that the message went through."
"Slack's interface is not simple for me. It's not a user-friendly interface"
"The reason is we are moving towards a new CRM, so we have a suitable solution to integrate with the new CRM."
"The tool has stability issues that need to be improved. We are not native English speakers and Slack needs to integrate grammar checks."
"When scaled on a large scale, the solution's cost becomes a matter of concern for organizations."
"Slack feels clustered and hence it should improve its design and UI."
"I want a feature in the solution that will help me share documents only with the set of people that I prefer rather than all of them. I would also like the solution to have a feature similar to Microsoft SharePoint where you can group all your documents."
SharePoint is a Microsoft-based platform for building web applications. It covers a widerange of capabilities and while it is appropriate for experienced webdevelopers, even non-technical minded users can easily navigate through thesystem and execute functions such as collaborating data, managing documents andfiles, creating websites, managing social networking solutions, and automatingworkflow.
