Off-line Client / Integration or Workflow Recommendations for Smartsheet
My very short question is: After researching that Smartsheet does not offer a desktop client or offline mode, are there any software solutions on the market that offer an integration from Smartsheet to a client based application; or perhaps a workflow you've worked out for offline users?
Smartsheet became an invaluable tool and really proved its flexibility and capability to our organization throughout 2020 & 2021. In 2020, my company, Ball Corporation, launched an entirely new business unit, the Ball Recyclable Aluminum Cup.
Using Smartsheet with a couple of very basic Microsoft integrations, we self developed, built and executed a hefty set of integrated project & resource plans, RAID logs, Kanban boards and Dashboards to stand-up a brand new manufacturing process, a new manufacturing plant, and an entirely new IT infrastructure; which included software heavyweights SAP and Dassault Apriso, in support of this new business venture. We launched on time and on-budget and it was and is the exact right tool for the time and the situation we were in, given that due to the pandemic 95% of the knowledge-based user work was completed off-site and remote.
Today, however, we're starting to return to a new version of normal, and that does mean that global travel is picking back up. It is also starting to challenge my Smartsheet users who can't always be on-line when traveling.
It absolutely pains me to honor a request to cut projects back over to Office $365M, but I do owe it to certain PMO teams & resources to keep them productive when infrastructure is still coming up to speed. If anyone has even an obscure recommendation or workflow, I'd love to hear about it.
