The New UI

I strongly dislike the new UI with regards to placement. Almost every screen has a landscape orientation and by making the toolbar go across the screen rather than down you have take valuable screen real estate from me. Your UI should push to maximize the height of viewable data. At A min give us the option to put it back on the side of the screen.


  • Hi Bill,

    Although it does take some adjustment, the changes that we've made to Smartsheet were made after extensive research and planning.

    We made this change for a couple of reasons:

    • Increase visibility of powerful features (forms, alerts & actions) by moving their access points to a menu bar at the top
    • Create an experience that is more familiar to new users and collaborators

    I can understand frustrations with having to rethink aspects of your workflow due to this—I've had to rethink how I work in a few instances.

    I would like to have all features at the top. Move Comments, Attachments, Update Requests, etc to the top too. The could be placed beside File, Alerts & Actions, Forms.
