Trello clone

I would have never selected it as I prefer Trello since it is a bit more intuitive.

Pros

Smartsheet is easy to set up, share, and use. It can be set up in a Gannt chart format, or even a calendar format. Those are two positives.

Cons

It has a look and feel like Trello but not as eloquent.

Great Project Management Tool!

2017-02-21

Other products like Trello and Basecamp have some of what we wanted.

Pros

Gantt Charts, sub-tasks, online and updated in real time, and very easy to use

Cons

Not free and I still have to convince my boss that we need to get it. So, as a group we don't currently use it.

Pros

Smartsheet is cloud based, so can access it anywhere. Love the little things like hitting the "insert" key inserts a new row. They clearly think about intuitive and easy workflow enhancements. Granted, we're not advances users of Excel, but in our architecture practice, there's nothing excel does that we couldn't do in smartsheet. We also use the Gantt chart feature for design and construction schedules. We didn't have MS Project before, but now we don't need it.

Cons

The last time I checked, their Kanban worksheet setup didn't make sense, whereas Trello had it figured out.

Smart Sheet = Smart Choice

2016-11-17

It also doubles as a Gantt chart package and most recently was updated to include card view (similar to Trello). If you are looking for an all in one package with many features and templates, Smart Sheet is a very good value.

Pros

Easy to use, many features and Templates to select from.

Cons

If you are familiar with Excel formulas, Smart Sheet has a slightly different method. Therefore it takes a little to get use to the difference but once you do it's pretty straight forward.

Trello was too complex for me.

2018-09-11

Pros

I tried Trello hoping to streamline client and team collaborations and GTD tasks for members of my organization. I felt like it had a nice feel and good following and chose to test it out before settling in a task/project management software.

Cons

Though, Trello is way more user friendly and clean than the likes of Smartsheet, I still prefer MeisterTask for management to the fidelity I need.

Useful tool to manage workflow

2018-10-06

Pros

I find the workflow is less restrictive and therefore more collaborative than other similar software packages.

Cons

It would be great if it had connectors to other packages like JIRA or Smartsheet.

Time to get organized!

2018-12-18

It has become a vital part of our Program Management.

Pros

We use other planning tools, like smartsheet, for specific implementation plans, but Trello for managing accounts as a team and keeping track of all the moving pieces.

Cons

Notifications could be better, and tracking overall progress against completion.
