Overall Satisfaction with Smartsheet

We use Smartsheet to create schedules for various construction projects. We create both detailed construction activity schedules as well as more high-level milestone schedules. We also create hot-lists, to-do lists, AR logs, clash management logs, and a variety of other logs/lists/projects that we can easily access online and link together.
  • Ease of use
  • Link different schedules back to a master schedule
  • Easy to share with others for access
  • Collaboration
  • Add more of the features that Primavera/Microsoft Project has - more logic/complex logic for complex projects
  • Resource loading
  • Customize the dates that a schedule classifies as working days. There are only 2 options currently - weekends or select dates, but you cant do both
  • Customize the look of the bar chart - add wording, colors, etc
  • Ease of sharing ability with others
  • Collaboration
  • Can link projects together easily
  • Proper schedule tracking keeps projects on track
  • Notify owners of schedule changes
  • Allowed us to track who is responsible for what
Smartsheet is much easier to collaborate on than Microsoft or Primavera in terms of scheduling software, but lacks the customizability of its competitors. You can also much easier link projects together when master scheduling which is a huge advantage compared to Microsoft project or primavera. Those two programs would be the biggest competitors and do not have that feature or at least its not as easy to use.

Do you think Smartsheet delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Smartsheet's feature set?


Did Smartsheet live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Smartsheet go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Smartsheet again?


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.
