Conga ActionGrid

Overall, I enjoy using Conga ActionGrid. It helps us store our large candidate pool, while continuously adding more candidates every day. With a quick search we are able to find these candidates and then match them to a job that they might be a good fit for. After we create a packet for them to present to hiring managers

Smartsheet

While Smartsheet can't quite do everything Excel can, it can completely replace Microsoft Project and some other collaboration tools. I really like the sharing ability within the tool, and the fact that your sheets come with multiple options for sharing to users who do not even have Smartsheet accounts. It makes collaboration very easy. It also has good options to store and track documentation and comments related to each item/task.

Pros

  • Allows recruiters to service candidates within a radius of a desired city/location
  • Allows recruiters to see multiple fields/information on multiple candidates at once
  • Allows for easier ranking/sorting by salary, years of experience, etc

  • Dashboards. If you know how to use them, they can combine the info and data from multiple sheets into one comprehensive view. This is crucial if you are managing a team that manages multiple projects in Smartsheet. It's like having all of the up to date, real time info at my fingertips.
  • Love that they went mobile. I can check info onsite when I'm traveling without having to login to my computer or have my computer with me.

Cons

  • The speed of ActionGrid can be very slow when reviewing a large pool of results
Peggy Tambouridis profile photo
  • There really isn't much up-front guidance offered on using Smartsheet. As with any company, they will provide training and obviously have a help menu, but it would be nice for there to be some "forced" tips and tricks or tutorials provided to give new users the ability to "power-use" the software more quickly.
  • Project files become very large, and it is often very difficult to work on different sections without getting lost within the project. This is not necessarily specific just to Smartsheet, but functionality that would enable modularization or more easy navigation to work on multiple parts of a sheet at once would be helpful.
  • Communication tools within Smartsheet are not very functional or not very intuitive. Because of its collaborative nature, it would be helpful for there to be more capabilities for communication within the application about changes being made or between users who are editing the same sheet.

It definitely meets our needs as far as organizing and archiving our tasks and files. As we train more staff to view it, I see opportunities for more improvement, which I am sure this program can handle. I look forward to seeing continued improvement from Smartsheet on their capabilities and functionality.

I would give it this rating because it is very intuitive; however, some of the formulas take a bit more explanation to set up and they do not always work as expected.

The product works great. The support team is responsive, but hardly ever needed. Training and consulting is free.

It's absolutely paramount to take a few minutes to actually play with the software. It's nearly impossible to do anything wrong or make a mistake which cannot be fixed easily. Under the help menu is Live Training option. After you familiarize yourself with the commands, watch the live training for some in depth understanding of how to make the software fit your needs perfectly.

Alternatives Considered

I've only used Salesforce before and am now using Conga ActionGrid. Although Salesforce is great, it is only used to log candidate information and then log actions that have been performed. With Conga ActionGrid, we are able to log more specific details about candidates, activities and follow up items. Conga ActionGrid provides more tools that would benefit many departments

Not everyone has a Gmail account or Microsoft Access, with Smatsheet you do not have to worry about that! They are cloud based and all you need to do is share your spreadsheet with another user if you wish. We currently are testing Smartsheet because it has many elements we seek to utilize and the live collaboration is great! I may not have used many other tools thus far, but Smartsheet is definitely a top leader for project management tools.
