IT Central Station is now PeerSpot: Here's why

SharePoint Designer Room for Improvement

ChristianBegaux - PeerSpot reviewer

One of the problems with SharePoint is that it claims to have so many features that people think they can do everything, and that is not correct. If you want to do everything, you're going to spend a lot of money to achieve your goals. Essentially, the marketing from Microsoft is very positive but from a consultancy point of view, it gets us in trouble because people have unrealistic expectations of the solution.

SharePoint is too complex to install and maintain.

The admin interface is poor, making it too complex to manage projects.

The integration with other products is poor. There are too many instances where we needed to call a third-party software company because functionality tried by the user in the other solution was not covered by SharePoint.

In the future, SharePoint needs to cover more of our needs for us to continue using it. For example, the workflow is not correctly integrated.

SharePoint Designer could be improved by being more user-friendly. I think that they have a new release, but the focus is on Power Automate, not Designer. Designer's interface is somewhat classical, but it should be more user-friendly. 

Designer should contain more features. Right now, we are doing the development of web parts on Visual Studio and doing the branding on Designer. If it were possible to merge them both into one tool, it would be easier.

I would like to see SharePoint improve the integration with different systems. I also would like to see more customization.

SharePoint Designer could improve most in analytics and reporting.

In a future release, SharePoint Designer can improve by implementing a headless solution, where we can create pages without headers.

The pricing is a little bit high and can be reduced. If we could pay for a single license that covers the whole organization then it would be better than paying fees based on the size of our user base.
