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.

Caveman ready interface. It's like an apple product; crack it open and go.

Slowest app to load, sometimes takes several reloads for app to become available. Slower than any other app I use. Downtime for maintenance. Have to log back in after maintenance. Adertisement banners appearing across top of page more and more. Can't merge...

Slow to load. Frozen development because they start from scratch for each new version. Lack of native integrations because developers have to develop new integration for each new version. I wish it had some kind of webform data entry onboarding feature...
