Multiple projects and hour registration

Hi there,


we are new to Smartsheet (testing) and would llike to registrate our EU projects. 

  • - Registration of multiple projects
  • - Fill in the available budget
  • - hour registration from employees on these projects (different from budget)
  • - different hourly rate per project per person
  • - Tasks and deliverables within these projects


How would we start with this?


Thanks!! Jan-Marc

  • Hi Travis,


    Thanks for the advise, but its not an answer to my question I'm afraid...:-). Could you, or someone else help out? Or is this discussion group not ment for these kind of questions?

    Jan-Marc, without knowing your business, your processes, or specifics about what you are looking for, it will be hard to give you an exact answer. It may be helpful to be more specific about what you are having trouble with. I will try and give you resources based on what you have provided.


    -Registration of multiple projects

    1. How are you registering projects? Do you need help adding projects to Smartsheet? If you are using MS Project, Excel, or Google Sheets, you can import the file to Smartsheet to create new sheets. 



    -Fill in available budget

    How are you currently tracking budgets? It is possible that however you were tracking this before can be done in Smartsheet in a similar manner. 

    Here are a couple links to our Solution Center which gives you examples of how you can track budgets:




    You can also search for “Budget” in the template gallery to view all of our budget templates. 


    -hour registration from employees on these projects

    We do not support duration in hours yet (it is coming in the next couple months) but you can manually track this in a Text/Number column


    -different hourly rate per project per person

    This can be tracked using formulas in a Text/Number column. Check out the template Time Tracker with Rate Table to see an example of this


    -Tasks and deliverable within these projects


    Sheets will support tasks and deliverables (depending on what you are looking for). What exactly are you struggling with with this item? You may want to look at the Basic Project with Gantt & Dependencies sheet which is a great basic project sheet. This might give you ideas of how to start your sheets.
