IT Central Station is now PeerSpot: Here's why

SharePoint Designer Primary Use Case

ChristianBegaux - PeerSpot reviewer
Consultant DMS/ECM at Boint / Doc

We are a consultancy and I am a project manager. We implement solutions for our customers and I have led several projects that involve SharePoint, as well as other similar technologies. My area of expertise is ECM, document management, information management, and related tasks.

The best business case for SharePoint is team collaboration. It can support a small team of people working on a project that involves an agenda, Wiki documents, and other related material. However, it's primarily used for temporary projects.

These days, I no longer work on SharePoint projects.

We were reviewing this tool for one of our clients — we work with both medium and large enterprises. Currently, they are using Documentum but they are interested in migrating to SharePoint, so they asked us to compare the two. I am part of an IT company where we do a lot of solutions and service-based IT. We do things for many customers from the IT side.

SharePoint Designer is for the developer or the administrator, it's not for the end product (the business user).

We use SharePoint to improve sequencing and workflow design in general, and it can be used to build a workflow process from end-to-end.

We also use the classic version of SharePoint to do work on the master page, pinning, and other things. We can use SharePoint Designer for that. We also copy our data from our SharePoint site by using SharePoint Designer to cut and paste.

One of our use cases of SharePoint is designing and branding our content management system. When somebody buys an intranet portal, like a content management system, for employees or a document management system for their company, they can buy SharePoint and use it to change the branding. Microsoft gives you default features—out-of-the-box—so if you want any changes regarding your identity, HTML, CSS, colors, or brand guidelines, then SharePoint Designer can help you to complete that task. SharePoint Designer can also be used to clear workflows. This is a tool which helps us brand the SharePoint portal and our flow sites. 

In the beginning, SharePoint was deployed on-premises, but now it is deployed on the cloud, so we are always using the latest version.

SharePoint Online is a collaborative tool. For example, if you need your coworkers to collaborate on a particular task or project SharePoint Online can be used to store your information in terms of the SharePoint list. Additionally, you can add your document or physical files there. If you need to build any kind of custom workflows or custom requirements for your business, you have the ability to do it in this solution.

Within our organization, there are roughly 3,000 people, but very few of them interact with SharePoint Designer. We plan on using this solution in the future.
