Smartsheet is a work execution platform and collaboration tool with a familiar spreadsheet-like interface that helps teams plan, track, and manage projects in real-time. Smartsheet features include a range of project management tools, such as document and resource management, project reporting, task management, file sharing, and timeline tracking.
Smartsheet can help teams standardize a project process, maximize productivity, and improve collaboration with automated workflow options that fit individual work preferences. Within the platform's project management tools, data can be sorted using card, grid, Gantt chart, and calendar view. With a real-time dashboard, teams can track project status, manage resources, and assign tasks to improve overall visibility and work efficiency.
Project plan information can be shared with leadership team members and key stakeholders to keep everyone on the same page. Activity log reports and customizable dashboards help ensure that team collaboration is consistent across projects of any size and kind, from software development to marketing plans.
With the Smartsheet app, teams can access project information and workflow data while on the go. The mobile app is compatible with iOS and Android devices.

My company was already using Smartsheet for basic task tracking when I started. Upon discovering how we could use dashboards, our utilization took off! We have now designed solutions for departments company-wide, improving management's visibility to workloads and processes. It's impressive how many problems Smartsheet has been able to solve.
- Ease of Use - No need to involve programmers to create custom solutions
- Versatility - customizable sheets and dashboards for different departments and needs
- Support - AMAZING user forum, help pages, support department
Row and cell link limitations - I bump up against the cell link limitations often, although I can work around them by saving my metrics into multiple sheets.

I love Smarsheet because it made my work easier. Now I can have collaboration from my entire company and get fast results.
-easy to use and costumize
-more than one user can modify simultaneously
-you can add your company's logo
-you can set group and individual reminders
- Cell history, which can tell who and when it was modified.
-different views: calendar, grid, card, and Gantt
- not all reminders can be set with time to remind
- can't add a conditional formatting based on time
- if your Smartsheet is big, formulas added can take forever to update the information, so you need to refresh it all times, even if you change settings to save automatically.

Smartsheet is a great tool to use for teams of people who need to share information daily. It is easy to use and teach. Smart sheets ability to store information in an organized way is invaluable.
What I like most about smart sheet is the ease of use, collaboration, and customizable tools. It is also great for adding up dollar amounts associated with different projects all on one collaborative sheet. The ability to color code cells depending on if a box is checked or not has been very helpful.
Smart sheet could benefit from incorporating some new features such as different views or different ways to organize files in the paperclip.

One of my team members was able to create a content calendar for a broad editorial group within the platform and it worked great and had excellent adoption from a cross-functional team. Vet it carefully for your particular needs before making an investment -- SS has a lot to offer for the right projects.
SmartSheet provides a lot of great features: easy-to-use "card view", quick Gantt charts and easy entry of tasks. I really like the simplicity of the tool as it feels very much like Excel at first blush. The two levels of access -- one for power users and one for light editors -- helps keep the tool in a very affordable price range. I absolutely love the ability to create a web intake form within minutes that can be published live for use without a login to the system. The form is highly configurable and is a great way to grab structured feedback or details from individuals.
SmartSheet is not a fantastic project management tool for software development. While the web-based intake form is decent for reporting bugs and it is a relatively simplistic tool, tracking items from beginning to end and creating validation loops should be easy but is not. Granted, we were using the tool for something it wasn't technically designed for, but much of the functionality is available within the platform for "light" development teams. Unfortunately, the implementation of specific task-driven items simply wasn't where it needed to be.

I love the product. I built many dashboards for many projects and adoption was growing within the company, but the cost was higher than other software. It should compete with Microsoft Planner (0$) and Microsoft Project Online (10$ a month)
I love that the learning curve is so low. This helps the adoption rate within the company
Could be much easier to integrate with Microsoft Teams for example
