Overall Satisfaction with Smartsheet

Smartsheet has been used by our startup for the purposes of mapping out product development schedules in a Gantt chart.
  • It is cloud based so it is always up to date.
  • It is browser based so it is the same interface regardless of operating system.
  • It is easy to share and collaborate again due to the fact it is on the cloud.
  • A way to zoom out the left columns in a Gannt chart not just the calendar on the right.
  • More visualization options to convert a Gantt in a simple timeline view, it looks like you are already doing this now.
  • In an ideal world this would be a set of power features for Google Spreadsheets.
  • It has improved communications throughout the organization, but it is hard to measure any benefits as of yet.
Smartsheet has it's advantages for being cloud and browser based. I like this approach far better than applications. The interface is unified cross platform and both the software and documents generated within it are updated in real time.
The reason we aren't using Smartsheet as our primary tool is that our partners in China still use Microsoft Project. It seems the adoption of cloud based services to replace applications has been slow in China.
It's tricky when you're doing business with larger companies, because their tools will trump your preferences. We work with a manufacturer much larger than us and they are using MS Project. For this reason we aren't using Smartsheet as much.

Using Smartsheet

We have zero people in house to support Smart Sheet. We need a project manager when we raise more funding.
