Since Citrix bought it, it's been getting even better! Now it has built in video conferencing (even free in the free Podio accounts). I also love all the pre-built packages you can "install" by just clicking to install them. Makes this tool very flexible...

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.

Working on a pre-startup for 6 months, using one of their available CRM apps. Worked beautifully, much better than competition for my purposes. 70,000 data points covering 4,000 artists were entered & stored. Then poof! One day my account wasn't there....

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...
