      Use it as a really good file server.
      Don't need to be on a VPN to access it
      Very easy to share folder between organizations
      Can have it store local updated copies of documents without having to copy them into a local folder (was really great when I did field work until recently)
      Has better uptime than normal file servers in my experience.

      Wtf is this wagieware?

      Basically OneDrive™ for ENTERPRISE™
      There's also some website thing for intranet sites, that frankly I don't know how it's related and isn't just a totally separate product.

      I hadn't thought of it at all.

      Well it's thinking about you :3

        Oh shit, could I use Sharepoint to host a local file server for my machines? Do I specifically need a Pro edition of Winhoes for this?

        I'm always shutting down Sharepoint, even tried deleting it, to stop it from running in the background. I figured it is some useless corpo/business thing I've no use for.

    Microsoft should have turned this into a full on document management system with document IDs years ago

    It's ok but has limitations but everyone increasingly just uses it as Microsoft's version of Dropbox.
    Don't try to use passworded docx or xlsx files in it though

    Confusing af. It's like they took WordPress and then though: how can we make it more convoluted.

    Yeah it's nice for the common office grunt who only edits shared Excel files. It already shits itself when too many people use a single Word doc and starts fricking up the formatting.

      Where I work, we have a main database system that is completely unfit for purpose; it's very slow, and is used by non-technically-literate/skilled staff. So even if those staff weren't constantly under the pump due to the crushing demand on the business, and if the workflows they're expected to carry out via the DB frontend weren't far too long and convoluted, so much info still has to be recorded in freetext comment fields due to the appallingly bad design, you'd need a university-level of education to do their job properly. As such the system itself is falling apart at the seams, and our 'data grain' could best be described in terms of the Bristol stool chart; which is unfortunate, as auditing is one of the functions they skimped on when developing this pile of shit.

      Anyway, I'm part of the team given the impossible task of trying to somehow prevent the very concept of entropy, and because our unit manager just loves Sharepoint my role has devolved into one of trying to turn Excel into a relational database in a vain attempt to supplant the missing features of the main DB. And it's a nightmare, because even if you make spreadsheets that have data-validation drop-down box options and dynamic highlighting to colour in the cells with missing info, people still leave them blank or fill them in wrong- or will cut/paste to break all your formulas and cell references. Fricking kill me.

        I'll never understand why so many people try to turn Excel into a DB when Access exists for pretty much exactly those scenarios.

          Excel lets you view and manipulate your data without abstraction, so people naturally think it's a good tool for data-entry. Even if it's really not, but since Access also doesn't work in Sharepoint, and creating a dimensional model is really hard, at the risk of leaving your Office365 comfort-zone and having to hire a DB Architect and some people who know SQL- nah, it's easier to just force the issue and use Excel regardless of how moronic it is.

            I use Excel as a personal DB as well.
            It just works, but I don't do anything remotely fancy or complicated with my spreadsheets like what

        Can't you connect a bunch of databases to Excel? Maybe through that dataverse stuff? Also perhaps a power automate form would be the better solution.. or at least lock cells.
