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

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

  • Conditional Formatting is an easy and highly effective way to assist readability, and more importantly, upkeep of a project plan.
  • While not obviously a team management tool, don't overlook these functions in Smartsheet, which can obviate the need for other such tools.
  • The web interface is slick and modern in all the best ways a modern app should be. It can be customized far beyond just a MPP-alike.

Cons

  • It could be more accurate
  • Better views would be nice. cleaner
  • Wish the refreshing was quicker

  • So many good features are hidden, such as the team management tools. This makes them hard to use.
  • The "sheets" quota, and the transmission of sheets between members, and the ability to maintain sheets - the whole system is convoluted. While I understand it after having used it so long, and also understanding the revenue model, it's a shortcoming of "product management."
  • It does not save automatically in the same way Google docs does. When people integrate with Google Docs, but the integrated tool doesn't follow one of the key affordances of Google Docs... well, a lot of people lose work, which is esp discouraging in that critical "education" phase.

Smartsheet is a spreadsheet. Everyone is familiar with spreadsheets.
That being said, comparing Smartsheet to a spreadsheet is like comparing a Golf Cart to a Tesla.
Yea, they both have 4 wheels and run on electric power, but... (:

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

It's excellent. It really helps optimize a search.

Sheets by Google lacks the super-useful premade templates and locks people into using their Gmail addresses.
