Let a Sleeping Dog Lie

edited 12/09/19 in Using Smartsheet

Why, why, why, why, why did you change the tabs feature so that we have to bookmark them in our browser / click the left pane to navigate to a sheet?! This new function is a complete and asinine change that makes me and my business have to do extra steps just to view a simple sheet.

Was there feedback from data / surveys that prompted this change? How did this come about without any community involvement?

Smartsheets had everything working great previously. Now, I feel cheated and taken advantage of. I expected this type of behavior from an ex girlfriend, not you, Smartsheets.

I'm not mad, I'm just disappointed.  




  • Agreed. Before, having the tabs at the top, we could glance up and pick a sheet. Now this idiotic "navigation pane", creates more work, takes more time to open, search the list, pick a sheet.

    Not happy at all.

  • Yeah, it's like no UX designer ever took a look at this. So many unnecessary clicks. I am fuming mad.

  • I am not a fan of this new system either. I have been trying to figure out what the improvement is, but have not figured it out yet. Definitely not as smooth as before.

    Much pain, minimal gain.  We work harder and have to implement workarounds in order to keep some functionality, while the browser tabs shrink and become illegible as I have 20 open.

    Who benefited from this design?  not sure

    Who is in pain because of it?  we are
