Smartsheet

Last Update: January 12, 2018

Just happened to fall into and pull up this new collaborative tool upon logging In today.

There are many aids and helps available to form our business here. Many of them are classed as Software As a Service - SAAS. One such is Smartsheet

This application is used to pull together and collaborate actions for working projects. Used for .work management it is developed and marketed by Smartsheet.com, Inc. It is used to assign project actions, track and manage initiatives and calendaring. As you get into the tool you will see the many format flavors used in the initiative.

In addition it can be used for progress tracking. Also for document sharing and managing additional work.

You have a spreadsheet autofill approach.to work and project layout planning. It makes use of basic calendars and other formats. Remember the Gantt chart that was mentioned the other day?!

I will research and pursue elements like this initiative to help us populate the data we need in our training and mentoring initiatives. Here is the application that I just signed up to.

Comments, feedback, and alternative initiatives are most welcome. We should not be rudderless in our initiatives here!

Heralding a new day in our great new project approaches. Mike.

Well, I am going to walk through the Super Affiliate, trying not to get "caught up" in anything. I told Kyle what I can commit to. I'm hoping it can educate me more through the process so I can work my site better, I know it's to market WA. Clever idea on Kyles behalf. We'll see!

Hi Mike, I have used Smartsheet quite a lot over the last 2 years approximately, for design procurement and construction scheduling. It is very good and easy to use, intuitive, and easy to copy and paste, and edit. It can deal with logic links between activities quite well. It runs into a limit around the 250 activity number, where the logic linking becomes unreliable. Nevertheless I found it a great alternative to excel (better for gantt charts, and logic linking), and good compared to other ¨lightweight¨planning software. From what I remember there are limitations with cost loading the bars as well, although resources can be loaded. it is good value, and worth investing in for high level programs/schedules. Best Alan
