Smartsheet excels with its user-friendly interface, combining spreadsheet familiarity with real-time collaboration. It supports various project management methods, integrates seamlessly with popular tools, and offers impressive automation features that I had never seen before. I find it an excellent software.
Smartsheet's advanced features have a learning curve, obviously and the cost may be prohibitive for smaller businesses. I can't say anything else negative.

All-inclusive project management software
I'm proud of the fact that I revamped several of the department's outmoded forms to make them accessible to everyone. Print runs were smaller and more people were talking in the paper.
When it comes to incorporating dependencies into a project plan, Smartsheet really shines. Plans for projects can be quickly converted into dashboards for straightforward, automatic reporting.
Smartsheet's gantt chart feature is useless. The gantt chart in this program is the most difficult one I've used to study. The grid layout makes it difficult for me to present my data, thus I usually have to export it to a different program.

Capable Yet Still Wanting
It's an online platform for teams to use as a management/planning tool. It provides a way to connect tasks to schedule to people allowing for potential automation in some of the process.
It needs to integrate more workflow / automation with email / Microsoft Outlook. A way to tie email to tasks, etc. As a firm we have been using Smartsheet as a project planning tool, although, it seems to be cumbersome and something that doesn't flow well as the project continues. Would like the ability to customize visually appealing output / reports that can be filed as pdfs.

Smartsheet is a fantastic resource for teamwork
Using Smartsheet, our team is able to centralize our paperwork, more accurately claim and monitor our work, improve our ability to interact with one another, and gain deeper insight into any lingering tasks.
The best part about using Smartsheets is that you can keep all of your information in one place, including notes, files, and contacts. The system is intuitive because it is laid out similarly to common spreadsheets but with additional features.
It's not simple to put in place. Only one person, in close collaboration with a SmartSheet expert, is responsible for initial setup and ongoing maintenance. It wouldn't be as useful to us without the assistance of a SmartSheet wizard available only to our internal staff.

In terms of project management, Smartsheet is fantastic
Assignees and due dates have been set for all tasks in Smartsheet. No one gets confused about their roles or deadlines because everyone is on the same page.
The capability to see, filter, and modify tasks in real time within the same view, as well as assign new projects to individual team members, is a key feature of scheduling software.
There has to be refinement to the reporting aspect so that you can have a deeper understanding of resource allocation and project progress.
