Pros

We are able to increase our work agility during our software implementation projects while using this excellent software. Great integrations with other systems.
I love how easy it is to use, how visually attractive it is to the eye. Our Plant Manager wants to make things easier for everyone to see how well we are doing overall, this would help.
I have used Smartsheet for 8 years and have been pleased with the way it has improved and developed, and when new useful features come out users are well informed.

Pros

Using the free version currently and the free version is good enough for my management. I like the user interface, its very colourful and very easy to understand and navigate even for non-IT user.
It is a super customizable platform to assign tasks and track them so that all team members have a good workload. The online support is also very helpful.
It was a very good tool to use, highly user friendly, quite effective and very visually attractive. This tool is great for startups in my opinion and the price is fair for the features it has.

Cons

There is not a lot to gripe about SmartSheets other than on occasion, the app can lag or suffer an error and finding what error it is and how to fix it can be a little frustrating.
The continuous loss of features for unlicensed with insufficient notice.
I have all positive comments for this tool but sometimes when it keeps on giving notification that thing I dislike. Otherwise I have no dislikes about smartsheet.

Cons

I did not use Asana to it's potential due to lack of branding and it not being top of mind as compared to some of its competitors. The tool is dull and makes a project look boring.
In using Asana at previous jobs there is also a decided lack of strategy and communication when rolling out updates compared to competitors which was maddening at my last position.
Any problems we have it with is more a lack of our own organization or keeping up with tasks than the software itself.
