It is a great way to stay organized with everybody.

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.

Trello is a task management system that organizes projects around boards. In one glance, you can see what's being worked on, who's working on what, and where something is in a process.The card-based design makes it easy to visually understand your project,...

Customization is not good enough. Complicated to start and at first it is difficult to find some features.

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...

I cannot stand that you're unable to actually "close out" tickets. All you can do is archive them but never truly mark them as complete.
