A great tool to have all information in one place and reporting one source of truth. It also alleviates a lot of time doing manual reporting when project managers don't have time for all the admin, PPO allows this to be quick and easy.

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.

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

We unfortunately don't use the resource scheduling and timekeeping functions. We have a bespoke system for that. It would have been wonderful to use these features of PPO in an integrated manner.

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...

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