Smartsheet Forward Q1 2024: Making work smoother, more intuitive, and fun

As we kick off 2024, many of you have been reflecting on your goals for the new year, and at Smartsheet we’ve been actively working on a whole bunch of new capabilities to help you reach your goals at work and to do so with fewer steps in Smartsheet. We’re also making features more discoverable, and making sure you have training that’ll help you get the most out of them. 

Smartsheet SVP, Product Management Ben Canning shares key areas of focus and the milestones we've achieved as well as what’s up next in the latest version of Smartsheet Forward. 


Browse some highlights below or get all the details here. 


Resource Management: Just got a whole lot easier

  • Workload Heatmap provides a clear and immediate view into the availability of your team members, shifting task assignment from guesswork to a data-driven strategy.
  • Workload Schedule gives you a comprehensive full-screen view of all team tasks and timelines. It simplifies the process of task reassignment and timing adjustments, while also providing visibility into the projects others are working on.

AI enhancements: Smart just got smarter

  • As of this quarter, any licensed Enterprise user can simply describe their ideas, and AI will write the formula for you — including complete column references — directly in your sheet.
  • AI text and summaries allow you to use your sheet data to write ad copy, extract specific pieces of information from sheet data, analyze sentiment, translate text, summarize a task, and more.

New views: See your work in a whole new light

  • Performance and scale optimizations will make sure your sheet loads quickly no matter the size — and that your solution can scale. And each new view will feature a new modern interface. 
  • We’re introducing fresh ways to visualize and manage date-based work with timeline view and board view (new card view) — - a favorite among project managers, creatives, and agile teams because it enables them to collaborate and categorize tasks in real-time. Later this year, you can look forward to the EAP launch of table view (the new grid view) and more.


And much more…

    Is there a chance you could provide a smartsheet of suggestions made and the priority for implementing them?

    It would also be nice to be able to see a possible implementation date though I know this is tricky because you don't want to be held to anything and disappoint people.

    It would be great if we could possible vote on the features most needed and maybe even the "impact" that such changes will allow. New theme colors are great but don't enhance the functionality.

    Being able to share admin rights to WorkApps is more of a game changer.

    Being able to use forms for update requests would be HUGE>>>>

    Being able to share a sheet access through those copied on the email or entered into a field on the smartsheet would be amazing.


    Respectfully,

    A user that sees so much potential with minor tweaks.
