What is Smartsheet?

Smartsheet is an online project management and collaboration tool from Smartsheet.inc in Bellevue, Washington. The software has a characteristic spreadsheet like interface but contains the full panoply of features expected of project management and collaboration software, such as automated alerts, instantaneous updating and sharing across team members, resource management facilitating budgeting and task allocation, nested tasks organized in a hierarchy, a Gantt chart view, the ready production of exportable reports (e.g. Excel), and integration with email. Across spreadsheets cells can be linked allowing the creation of master spreadsheets that provide ready summaries or automated reports. Smartsheet's capabilities can be expanded with a multitude of apps (e.g. Dropbox, Google Apps) or integrated into combinatory solutions (e.g. with Salesforce) to tailor fit business needs. It supports full mobile access.

Three tiers cover Smartsheet's pricing options. The Basic level provides core features for small groups of individuals, while the Team level is recommended for groups of up to 50 people and supports more user features, allows multiple sheet creators, and has reporting functions. The Enterprise level is a custom fit tier for groups of greater than 50 individuals or companies, and may include dedicated support personnel if desired.

Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

Overall it's a decent app. We found quite a bit of an issue trying to use their gaant template when it comes to functionality and what this tool can and can't do. Some aspects of this tool are limited (even to the more advanced accounts). Their support agents were not able to help us when it came to templates.

There were new vendors who needed to submit their documents by the sales department for legal and Risk department for reviewing and checking the validity of the documents, The way of escalation and attaching the documents and the vendor's data was well suited to be done through the smart sheet. As the sales use smart sheet tickets for submitting the vendor's details and attaching the documents. Through the Smartsheet automation process, a notification mail was sent to the legal and risk department for reviewing and the tickets were assigned already to the admins for validating . After the admin's review and tick mark on the check box of reviewing in the smart sheet which was customized than when its clicked send automated emails to the supervisors for approval, Then after the supervisor's approval, an automated mail was sent to the sales team for completing approval of the vendor. All of these scenarios and hierarchy did because of Smartsheet.

When working virtually it’s really helpful to be able to edit a workbook at the same time with other users. It’s also really helpful to be able to set up multiple sheets for individuals to manage and check in on those sheets with a Imports without having to send a document back-and-forth

Is well suited for organizations looking to improve processes, build workflows, handle input information via forms and show data through dashboards. Is less appropiate for organizations looking for a Project Management Tool using Agile; it has board features but maybe not the best practices in term of sprints, issue types, versioning integration, deployment insights, etc.

For teams and users who are very familiar with Excel and its mode of operation, Smartsheet will feel like a walkover. If you have a number of users who use Excel or Google Sheets for their personal project management then you will find this tool to be very useful and somewhat familiar.

Teams that may be used to other project management suites or styles would find Smartsheet a bit challenging to adapt to, as formulas and formatting can be challenging to adapt to.

The Smartsheet platform is extremely similar to Microsoft Excel, so if you are familiar with Excel, you will pick Smartsheet up quickly. Even if you aren't Smartsheet has a relatively simple user interface, meaning just about anyone can learn it. One thing to note is that the interface is that some may consider the interface so simple that they feel the need to look for more robust platforms. If you have a small to medium project that needs to be manages in a central hub, Smartsheet would be a great fit. If you have a very large project, I might consider looking into more advanced platforms.

If you're using Smartsheet as a replacement to Microsoft Project and then Smartsheet is a no brainer. It works great as a tool for Project Managers to effectively manage their team and keep projects on track. If you're in need of reporting and overall dashboards to keep track of more than one project you'll have to upgrade to the much more expense Business License. Wish they were more supportive of their legacy 'Teams' license.

I generally use Smartsheet where I need to work with less data. Generally, for documenting projects or maintaining process trackers. This tool serves really good if you have to remind other teams to input the data at a particular time of the month/week/fortnight or any other frequency. One can create a requisition form so no one has to rely upon Outlook where one can never audit old items. It is more transparent, and the entire world knows what the team is working on.

I used it for some projects, too, because it has Gantt template. Also, managing the team's leaves is a piece of cake with the help of Smartsheet.

I would say, wherever you have to collaborate, and the data is less, you can use it.

Smartsheet is feature-rich and serves a variety of industries from small businesses to enterprises and it's made to handle project management, sales tracking and crowdsourcing. The spreadsheet appearance is robust and highly customizable with the ability to handle various programs, collaborative projects and business operations changing the way teams collaborate on projects.

If you are just starting out with project management and need something beyond spreadsheets, Smartsheet is a great option as it is very intuitive. Users will quickly see that this is a project management software platform and not something that has been modified to be a project management tool. It's especially good with teams.

Specifically for our companies use case it has been incredibly helpful to manage projects and tasks as a project queue. With the ability to have a form where the requester can fill out all of their specific needs, upload documents if needed, and then submit it. Then our team is able to assign themselves or others to a task, we can monitor the progress, reply to the requester if need more clarification, and then mark the project as complete.

Smartsheet handles most projects very well. If you get into a number of subprojects it can get a little tougher to configure everything, but it still handles the display well. Smartsheet does have a learning curve that is built upon many Excel skills, but the user interface for changing the milestones and project sections could be a little more intuitive.

Very well suited in the Healthcare environment. Many times healthcare has 'lock downs' on computers and networks due to HIPAA concerns. Therefore, other solutions such as Google Sheets and even Excel isn't an approved solution. I have never run into an issue with our customers using and viewing Smartsheet.

Smartsheet is perfect tool for companies with large number of projects and requires to standardize its unique processes, have control on accountability, and leverage data in order to plan for the future. It is a rich feature project manager tool that could be of use in organizing and overseeing projects.

It is an outstanding resource for managing and supervising tasks and projects, especially when they are team-based. It is easy to use and has incredible capabilities that encourage collaboration between colleagues and organized work on projects; it is well worth it.

Smartsheet is great for any project or task management that you need to perform that can be best structured with a spreadsheet style template. It also allows you to create a diverse array of visualizations based on members progress in various tasks. It does not have as much functionality with group chat or communication and interface with email or other messaging platforms.

If you're looking for a super-powerful spreadsheet, this is for you. There is not a steep learning curve if you are familiar with spreadsheets. However, if you want something that has a better activity log, it is more user-friendly and agile, you're better off trying a more in-depth project management tool.

Smartsheet is great for: Project schedule management such as creating Gantts with a breakdown of tasks, understanding processes with many steps complexities and interdependencies and creating simple reports

Smartsheet may not be the best suited if you: want similar control and advanced capabilities such as Excel offers, want ultimate control over editing reports and output of information, all users to be licensed, and full ability to create sheets from nothing.

In the construction industry: Great for straightforward, more simple projects. Great for smaller projects. Great way of allowing multiple users to edit schedules and easy to share. Very similar to Microsoft project but does not have all the features to produce more complex projects. Not good for large, complex projects that you need more complex logic for. Cant edit dates/calendar/bar chart like I would like to.

At our agency, we really like using Smartsheet for larger website design and development projects. We can build line items for each task associated with the project and build dependencies with due dates that automatically adjust as certain parts of the project fall behind (this seems inevitable with this type of work!). We share the Smartsheet project with our clients in order to give them full transparency for where things are at and what is impacting the bottom line (launch date).

SmartSheet excels at:
  1. Project and task management.
  2. Managing repetitive workflows, especially those where approvals are required.
  3. Reporting on the status of tasks and projects.
It is not as well suited for:
  1. Information streams that require parent-child relationships.
  2. Situations where complex security requirements exist (for example where users need access to some of the information but should be restricted from seeing all of it).

Smartsheet is highly customizable and visual with an interface that resembles an online spreadsheet and with key functions such as planning and tracking of projects, automating and reporting on work. The project management features of Smartsheet are extremely powerful helping teams perform a wide range of tasks and eliminate repetitive processes
