We are happy to announce that we have just launched Smartsheet for Confluence, an integration that embeds the full customization and automation powerhouse of Smartsheet into Confluence Cloud:
Smartsheet is possibly the first multi-purpose tool of its genre, with a look and feel that may feel a bit dated but a set of functionalities that envy nothing to Airtable, monday.com, notion.io, and the like. Smartsheet looks like a spreadsheet, but it’s actually more of a project management and team collaboration app. It has workflow and automation functionalities. It supports virtually any business logic you want to build on top of it. And while there can be a steep learning curve, that’s diminished by the huge amount of templates on which you can base your work.
This digital marketing plan sample that comes preloaded with a Smartsheet trial gives a very quick idea of how much you can combine into a single view. Budgeting, project plan and project tracking with gantt charts, calendar, reminders, checklists… It’s really flexible! And you still get the excel-like power features. My favorites are conditional formatting and filtering.
Adding approvals, notifications, or dynamic cross-sheet references is super easy with the in-built workflow automations!
What this means is that you can create a spreadsheet to track and monitor virtually any business process, as proven by the endless templates for all types of teams. Did you ask for an IT PMO accelerator?
And if a spreadsheet doesn’t do it justice, you can jump on a different view. Did I hear kanban board?
Are you interested in integrating your projects and processes into your Confluence cloud? Then Smartsheet for Confluence can be a great option. Gantt charts and Confluence are not traditional allies.
Switching views can also be done directly from Confluence, allowing to jump from loaded gantt charts…
to more minimalistic card views, which are always great for agile teams.
Users can choose between three types of views:
Let’s admit it. The reporting options in Confluence are quite limited. But on Smartsheet, anything can be connected into a dashboard as a widget, and as a result Confluence will always show you the most current information.
In the end, it’s about using Confluence to align teams that would otherwise remain siloed because they are using a different array of tools.
To embed Smartsheet with Confluence, you simply need to:
Integration with other sources of data? Interactive reports and data filtering, directly from Confluence? These are just random ideas, but we’d like to know what you think.
If you would like to do more with Smartsheet directly from Confluence, let us know your thoughts! We’re actively collecting customer feedback to develop this integration further and make Confluence much more than a knowledge management platform.
