Customer support has helped me and my team to organise several projects at once. Everybody loves to work with the tool and I am more than happy that I have found it. If I have an issue, the AC team gets back to me immediately. Thank you!

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.

The new update did not have anything that we needed and essentially changed the entire way the system functioned. After the 2015 update, our team had to switch service because Active Collab no longer worked the way we needed it to.

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...

Slow to load. Frozen development because they start from scratch for each new version. Lack of native integrations because developers have to develop new integration for each new version. I wish it had some kind of webform data entry onboarding feature...
