There is no desktop app for Any.do. This is the only con I can see now.

Smartsheet

Smartsheets is very well suited for building and managing project plans, no matter how simple or complex they are. Budgets are easily managed and maintained, as are scheduling dates and assigning users 'action items' and permissions, with cell-level security features available out of the box. Smartsheets is well suited for collaboration. Multiple users, if given admin or editor privileges have the ability to make changes at once, avoiding issues that often can materialize regarding versioning errors typical, as a result of multiple authors or editors.For project managers, smartsheets has multiple 'views' available, which can come in handy depending on your specific purpose. For those interested in seeing all of the details, the standard view is a table/spreadsheet type of view. For a more agile approach, or a simplified user view, their 'task-list' type view can help to easily view in a card-type of format and classify those tasks that have been 'completed' versus 'in-progress' , 'in qa' or other relevant category / classification. Other views include the Gannt chart view, which is helpful for seeing things in a calendar-like view, helpful in showcasing things like dependencies.

  • We have found that Excel and Google Docs "super users" get frustrated with some of the nuances of Smartsheet compared to their regular programs. Making sure that Smartsheet is not "just another tool" that our staff has to use, discussing the differences between Smartsheet and those programs, and explaining why we chose to use Smartsheet for a particular program, makes a huge difference in staff perception.
  • A lot of front end planning and organization is needed for some of the larger projects in Smartsheet. It is best to start small and play in the software so you can learn how everything works, before developing a robust program Gantt and reporting system.
  • Our organization has looked at expanding the use of Smartsheet to report consistently across our seven divisions. However, the dashboard functionality is not quite where we need it.

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.

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.

Involve as many people as possible in the process, so they are not surprised by it. Get an executive sponsor to send out an email expressing their support of Smartsheet to minimize resistance.

Alternatives Considered

Any.do is simple and easy to use. I'm huge fan of Wunderlist, but now a fan of Any.do too.

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.
