"Smartsheet delivers ... easy implementation, quick adoption, excellent customer service"
Smartsheet is a robust product hidden in what appears to be an Excel lite interface. That almost instant familiarity for staff in our organization seemed to liberate them to experimentation and exploration seldom seen when introducing new products. It's important that all staff who will be using Smartsheet go through available video trainings and a "success manager" led onboarding session (s). Due to how easy it is to get started, you may misinterpret that Smartsheet is lacking capability; however, that is not the case. In fact, some of your staff may quickly try to convert everything to Smartsheet Expect a disruption in process as people begin to realize the power of the product. Depending on how you'd like to use Smartsheet - there is a need for planning and devising certain standards in the organization. We saw an explosion of sheets created across our team - as different staff raced ahead creating various sheets there were no standards in how they named columns (fields) - some would use "Comments" some "Notes" or some used "Assigned To" and others "Contact". When we began creating Reports (views), the lack of standard naming became an issue. This is a product where the users will easily outpace your attempts to create content (templates), standards etc. You likely will not necessarily want to shut down this initiative and excitement, but you should expect a pattern of uncontrolled growth resulting in issues followed by policy or process improvement then normalization and back to uncontrolled growth. Rinse and repeat. Rely on your Customer Success Manager.
"Best project management tool"
While working on my project management degree i came across several project management tools that help accelerate workflow to easily create processes and concentrate in all the diferent areas that management need to take care of. Toools like Gannt Pro helped us create Gantt charts easily, but it missed integration with other programs. Office 365 has come again with MS project and MS project online, integrating the best of office 365 with the tools needed for project management. Project management is integrated not only with Office but with everyother project manaegemt tool in the internet. This makes it the go to app to create any type of project. The tool can be a little overwhelming but it has it own tutorial that explains the basics of it. You can create flowcharts, timecharts and amazing ghant charts. All the platform is completelly intuitive, and if for example you need to make an assigment as part of another one, you just drag it and it will be conected by itself. The best part is that you can customize everything to your country and workplace preferences including work calendars, schedules people involved etc. At the end every process can vbe saved or printed out and used as a guide to continue with your project. I do believe that office is bringing all this tools to not only simplify our workflow but to help us achieve better results

Microsoft Planner is ideal for organizing teams that share tasks to complete a common goal or project. It offers a set of features ranging from organizing and assigning tasks to different users to checking for updates on progress.

"Interaction with Office"
My experience is satisfying because the project is an excellent tool for developing timelines for personal and corporate use. What brings a great experience in my opinion, is the fact of having a strong interaction with the office package allows you to copy information from Excel directly to the project.
