Find out in this report how the two Project Portfolio Management solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"The newest feature of "My Work" is my favorite."
"The sales sheet where we keep track of all transactions including transaction history, customers, and all necessary records is great."
"The solution is easily scalable."
"Since I'm using it for a variety of purposes, not just project management, I can customize boards and workspaces based on the needs of that particular workflow."
"Performance has been good. Stability has been good."
"It is easy to use and our processes are much better organized and reviewed."
"The most valuable aspect of the solution is the fact that we can make the tool as we want, in the way it is the most useful for us."
"The date, timeline, and task management features are great."
"The integration portion with SAP models is valuable."
"We like Smartsheet's workflows, automation, and low-code capabilities. I don't know of any other project management tool with low-code functionality designed for project managers."
"Smartsheet does a really good job of creating Gantt charts. Export to Excel feature was also very useful."
"The ability to build a quick dashboard and give management insight into the progress of the project itself is probably one of the most beneficial pieces."
"It's very user friendly."
"The fact that you can have different access groups is definitely a pro for Smartsheet. It also has the ability to integrate with a lot of tools."
"What I found most valuable in Smartsheet is its project customization feature. It's a great solution because you can add in your own WBS. You can see it in Jira style, Kanban, and you can even do Agile and Waterfall. Another feature that's valuable in the solution is when you have those connections, you have that API, you have a sandbox, and you can make a solution, it's a tremendous product because you can pull data."
"The solution has subtasks and a rollup."
"The dashboard and the layouts are quite good."
"In my initial exposure to the interface, I did not find it to be very user-friendly."
"I would love to be able to hide rows visibility. Currently, this is only available for columns."
"The mobile application of the solution can be improved by making it more user-friendly."
"Coordination with different social media platforms would be a convenient feature."
"Service being down happens to often. They need to create a desktop version that stores the info locally so that when their servers are down, I can keep working and accessing my data. Then it could be uploaded when their servers are online."
"The biggest thing missing that would be beneficial to us is a time tracking app."
"Having more integrations for different specialties that use Monday would be great."
"We need more cross-API integration with creative apps in the Adobe Suite and other communication platforms."
"It would be valuable if SAP integrated seamlessly with some products like Jira and Bitbucket."
"You were forced to create a new tab rather than add another sheet."
"Maybe the solution could be a little bit more flexible."
"Smartsheet should continue to expand the spreadsheet-type functionality because it's limited currently. Most business users are familiar with Excel and Office, so Smartsheet should adopt a similar way of navigating the program."
"I would like if Smartsheet allowed more formulas in its sheets. I don't think working with formulas is as intuitive as it is in Excel. I use Vlookups and index matches in some of my sheets, and I had to find an outside consultant to help me build out those formulas."
"It already has a really powerful Export to Excel feature, but it can have an Excel add-on. The way to set up single sign-on wasn't too easy in the beginning, and it was hard to get hold of customer service. They should make it easier to set up SSO. Smartsheet's customer service also definitely needs to be improved."
"The long-term timelines could be improved, especially the visuals on the projection Gantt chart."
"The downside of Smartsheet is that there are some security concerns. We were able to restrict people from sharing sheets with anyone who was not in our domain, but it could be easier. We also found it hard to restrict certain user groups from adding attachments to sheets."
"Smartsheet could improve the UI and integrations. Some of Smartsheet's competitors have more than 2,000 integrations while Smartsheet only has approximately 40 integration applications."
