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

G2 Crowd User

The ease of use on the platform, multiple integrations and the fact that its free and non limiting makes this a great Task Management tool that can rival trello.

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.

Trello is a task management system that organizes projects around boards. In one glance, you can see what's being worked on, who's working on what, and where something is in a process.The card-based design makes it easy to visually understand your project,...

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...

G2 Crowd User in Consumer Electronics

I can't reorganize stacks of cards (vertical columns) in the projects; after i once marked task as completed by accident i couldn't go back, no undo option

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...

I cannot stand that you're unable to actually "close out" tickets. All you can do is archive them but never truly mark them as complete.
