Active Collab provided the opportunity to set up templates and we could copy those templates into our active projects. As a project manager, also found the Activity tab to be super helpful. You could see how things are processing within the project and what...

SmartSheet's simplicity and intuitive design make it very easy to become productive very quickly. It combines the best aspects of Microsoft Excel like the ability to create complex formulas with the sharing, collaborative parts of Google spreadsheets.
