Pros

It's been great having so many templates to choose from and customize. Awesome that it can be integrated with MS Teams.
I love the ease to customize your sheet for whatever you need and however you like it. Love being able to switch around columns and sort rows so quickly too.
The project being web-based helps to share information with other members of the team. The ability to export to various formats, as well as get team updates is a huge benefit.

Pros

I have often recommended this software to people working in the social impact sector, even it's free version is SUPERB.
Asana and Instagantt integration is great and works well. I like best the baseline tracking / snapshots that can be custom branded and private links can be sent to customers.
Seems to be the only product of its kind which has this ease of use and not too much complexity for single person use. It is good for research project planning and keeping on top of daily goals.

Cons

I then took the Smartsheet training to be certified and that opened my eyes to the power of the tool (and also to the fact that the sheets I hated were users in our company using it very, very WRONG).
The only complaint that I have is that if the spreadsheet is very large, the page can be slightly laggy.
Some features seem to be missing or limited features available.

Cons

Sometimes so slow that it's hard to load at all. This is apparently to do with Instagantt reading subtasks in subtasks (in subtasks), but it's such a problem that we nearly had to stop using it.
The inability to view only by weeks and days. Inability to write changes back to Asana.
Feel difficult to synchronize with Asana. Often fail with it to re-input the task information.

Great product- Keep it up!

Reviewed 2 years ago

I like the graphics and ease of use more than SmartSheet. Instagantt is more intuitive. I would like more features, but overall, it's nice software and I will continue to use it.

Pros

The format is clean and the way tasks can be quickly added is very convenient

Cons

The sections and tasks definition took some time to get used to. I am still working to understand how to easily link tasks without connecting via the mouse. A simple predecessor/ successor box would be faster. It would be great if you could allow users to add custom columns. This may be present, but I haven't yet located the feature. I would also appreciate a simple Task List feature. I am currently using a SmartSheet Task List and Instagantt gantt chart, since I cannot locate a task list feature in Instagantt.
