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

Scott B.
Consultant in Computer Software

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.

Things haven't evolved over the last couple years and now there are other options out there for managing projects and tracking time.

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...
