Smartsheet Software

Smartsheet Software is a dynamic project management platform that has no coding requirements. It helps teams manage their projects, employees, workflows and build new applications with data security. The software can be used for single projects and scaled up to complete work management. The collaboration and resource management tool have an interface similar to spreadsheets to allow easy tracking, planning, and managing of work.  

The interface updates in real-time and helps execute work with features for document management, time tracking, project reporting, file sharing, and task assignment. There are tools that align teams in all activities and boost productivity levels too. Content management is easier because Smartsheet has options that make meaningful impacts. There are robust core competencies and built-in templates for quick reporting. The premium options offer add-ons that facilitate organizations to work at a faster pace. 

Smartsheet allows planning, managing, capturing, automating, and reporting of all work so delivery is optimized. Users have the options to share projects in the form of cards, grids, Gantt, or calendars. They can edit them and create dashboards that are reportable and can be instantly shared. Users can integrate chat tools and communication software so users are never delayed by system lags. 

Smartsheet Pricing

Smartsheet Software pricing plans are monthly and businesses are charged per user. They start as low as $7 per user if you pay annually. Smartsheet offers discounts to non-profit organizations, schools, and government agencies. They have no free version but interested parties can avail of the free trial. 

Smartsheet Software Pros And Cons:

Pros

Smartsheet can integrate with enterprise record-keeping systems and productivity apps which means that work is unified to a single platform. Employees across the organizations can collaborate and users can communicate with external stakeholders as well. The software promotes teamwork and easy correspondence 

Cons

There are not many formulas on the platform for analysis and calculations. The software saves reports in random order so it takes time to locate them in the directory. The timesheet and master schedule do not sync up automatically either so it causes some inconvenience when aligning tasks and assigning items.  

Smartsheets Highlighted Features 

Workflow Automation

Teams can implement powerful workflows and automate them with a simple gesture. It only takes a few minutes to tweak the settings and you can let the software handle repetitive processes. Smartsheet sends alerts, approves requests, and updates systems itself. The sheet locks change and perform actions based on preset times. Business users can make workflows more efficient by combining items and program conditions using a visual editor so they do not have to review each one manually. 

Synchronized Dashboards

The platform provides dashboards that let managers view comprehensive graphs, tables, and visuals that show updates in real-time. Users can monitor the work status through the centralized dashboard. Information and resources are available on a single screen allowing users to adapt to changing conditions. It is much easier to identify trends with user-friendly widgets because you can read live data, charts, and track metrics. 

Collaboration Tools

Users can create, plan, edit and review content through the Smartsheet platform. It accelerates the finalization of assets by automating alerts, reminders, and requests. Designers and content creators follow a schedule and add their content tasks to the dashboard to increase visibility. Colleagues can review content from within the Smartsheet system without requiring access. Clients can also provide feedback in detail using annotations or by starting conversations.  

Project Visualization

It is easy to visualize the status or progress of any project using Gantt, calendar, grid, or chart views. The data is presented in easy-to-read formats so all project members are always on the same page. They can also directly add attachments from Google Drive, DropBox or OneDrive with ease.

Smartsheet solved most of my problems.

December 2022

Jack T. Dawson

Associate Analyst

Pros:
It is to use smartsheet to organize our team's information and projects. We can also quickly collaborate on projects to ensure that we are all on the same page as a team. We also use it to keep track of activities we want to accomplish in the future as well as time off requests. I like how we can design forms for our team to use as a quick entry point into the smartsheets grid, as well as for our other team members.
Cons:
I haven’t used the software for a long time, and overall, I have nothing negative to say about Smartsheet. I don't comprehend things because I haven't taken the time to learn about them, like Dashboards. This is extremely user-friendly, and the Smartsheet university will walk you through in-depth training if you have any questions. The other issue I've had over the years is the inability to type special characters within cells. Apart from that, I haven't had any problems with the software that’s worth reporting.

Jr. Manager

Pros:
Smartsheet is everything you need in one place without juggling multiple platforms at once. You can also schedule emails to be delivered to people who have been assigned duties. It's similar to a supercharged Excel sheet to which you may attach papers and chats "on the row" in question. The dashboards also allow for easy project updates for the executive team. If necessary, you can add your own logos and color schemes to differentiate between different projects and even multiple businesses. I appreciate that they give a lot of free classes and that they truly attempt to help you if you need it.
Cons:
It took me a bit to figure things out, but once I did, it was much easier than it appeared at first. The offered Smartsheet classes aren't usually what you'd anticipate, but they're free. I signed up for a free webinar, only to realize that the topic was about a product that was an additional module that we had not acquired. It can be difficult to locate a webinar or class in their library. Other than that, I haven’t faced any issues with the software in terms of its use.

Pros:
It has been a rough start but the integrations it has with other third party apps we use has helped me get attached to it. User training is not that complicated either.
Cons:
It has very basic features that would almost all be available on Excel for free.

Pros:
I have had such a great experience with Smartsheet. It is very smooth and easy to create and assign individual or team tasks.
Cons:
Very rarely experienced hiccups.

Cloud-based, flexible, robust, and reliable

Michelle

Education Management

Pros:
Smartsheet is very easy to operate and just requires a simple log-in to get started. I am in charge of training new staff, and I can affirm that the software is so simple that anyone may use it with just the most basic introduction possible. I personally never felt the need to receive formal training. SmartSheet's online community of helpful tips and training materials is a solid source for you to solve most issues on your own. And if not, you can reach out to the support services anytime. It really adds to the reliability of the software.
Cons:
That being said, Smartsheet is a bit different than anything you might have worked with before. Therefore, it has a very small but very real learning curve as well. But it is only due to the fact that there are slight differences in almost everything SmartSheet does. and that's about it. Some things are missing here that we found in other software. And a lot of tweaking is usually involved to make it do what you want, but it's totally worth it. It keeps the exciting spirit alive!

The best of Excel and PowerPoint combined into one

Pros:
Smartsheet is perfect for those who are not looking for something very detailed but need just a bit more functionality to manage their workflow than simple task management tools such as Trello. It is very intuitive to use Smartsheets, partly due to the fact that it resembles Excel a lot. It is simple and allows transferring data from one team to another automatically via reports, messaging, and data presentation. Smartsheet shines the most when the number of users increases, so you can see how well it manages all the data. Most individuals will surely appreciate this.
Cons:
The software is still a work in progress, and I think most of the features were rushed in order to deliver a product. Smartsheet is very new in comparison to other project management software, so it was expected. However, I can confirm that they are constantly adding new features and improving the old ones. In some ways, this is fantastic since they take customer feedback seriously and make adjustments rapidly. I think they lack the kind of leadership that truly makes a company great. There's a lot that needs to be worked around.

Reliable, robust, and intuitive in every way possible

Pros:
I admit that most of the work that I do can be accomplished using MS Excel, but it lacks some core features that Smartsheets has, which makes me come back to it again and again. I can share spreadsheets and collaborate with my teams at the click of a button. I like how all of the Smartsheets I have access to can be organized into folders for easy retrieval, and I love how I can pin sheets or go to the most recently accessed to quickly find the one I'm looking for. They keep adding new features for us to try and give feedback on, which is fantastic. We can also automate a lot of tasks to cut down on our working time and spend it elsewhere.
Cons:
The software sends an email every time I set up rules for a sheet to everyone, which is great since the change is immediately notified. I just don't like the fact that the email that people receive appears to have been sent from "me." I'd prefer that the email come from Smartsheet rather than my email address because, in many cases, I set up the rules for others and it appears that I'm emailing them about it, which is inconvenient to say the least.

Not just a timesaver, but a lifesaver!

Construction

Pros:
Smartsheets has a lot going for it, but my favorite tool is a combination of automated reminders, overdue milestone reports, allocating personnel to projects, and running comprehensive reports to check on the current work of my team. The reliability of this software is made rock solid when combined with cross-sheet cell linking, indexing and matching where necessary, and large-scale reporting where conditional formatting may be required. It has all the tools you'd need for effective project management and even increases your efficiency in the long run.
Cons:
There is no way to rename a file if you want to do so afterwards. Only once will you get the option to name it when you create a new file, which is very weird and limiting. I have to very carefully name every file since a certain project may go on for months and we can get stuck with a wrongly named file.

Simple way to monitor progress and simultaneously work on a project

Pros:
Keeping track of individual tasks is not an issue anymore. Easy to use and more professional version of regular spreadsheet apps.
Cons:
Automatic emails based on task updates should be available as an option to send.

Smart software for your needs

Retail

Pros:
I have been able to automate my workflow and be able to set reminders on when key clients need to approve vendor forms. All my data is organized in a grid thanks to Smartsheet.
Cons:
Forms are very handy and readable when I send it to the vendors. However, I could not find a way to re-send that same form somewhere else once it was submitted.

Keeps us updated with our projects

Pros:
It has enabled me to keep track of my project's progress and update my clients as well as my management regarding my performance.
Cons:
We have only just started with it so can't really say that if the features we really wanted are absent or we are yet to uncover them.
