Smartsheet is heavily equipped with strong, robust features that cover many aspects of project management. The tool easily handles all basic tasks like task management, contact management, alerts, notifications, reminders, etc. with exceptional ease. For brand-specific content purposes, I will refer to “projects” as “sheets” from now on. Here are the details of some of the most exciting features:
The control center is a portfolio and project management tool that allows consistent visibility across all projects, tasks, and business processes at scale. With this feature, you can set up new sheets and processes automatically with standard components, implement approval workflows, make on-the-fly changes across the entire portfolio, improve program management, and standardize project provisioning.
Workflow automation allows you to automate repetitive tasks and processes by sending alerts, requesting approvals and updates, assigning tasks to team members, recording the current date when a milestone is reached, combining multiple scenarios to meet your needs, and locking rows based on sheet changes.
The Bridge is an advanced, no-code interface feature that allows you to connect data across multiple systems, eliminating all manual steps and reducing human errors. For example, you can configure the system to automatically add leads and their related information into your CRM platform or find your most recent comment across all sheets.
Content collaboration allows users to plan, manage, and review all content production inside Smartsheet to finalize more tasks more efficiently, and eliminate duplicate reviews and content version confusion. This feature allows collaborators outside your team (colleagues, vendors, clients, etc.) to proofread the content without sheet access. They can also provide feedback via comments, pins, and approvals.
