Today we’re thrilled to announce Resource Management is now part of the project management toolset in Smartsheet. Resource Management is one of our most popular enhancement requests and we’re excited to fill this need.
Managing time and availability is a vital piece of any project, and this feature provides that benefit. In fact, in a recent survey we conducted, 97% of the organizations surveyed said resource management is a key component of successful projects (TVID: 369-A52-1DB).
Resource Management is a simple view of your team’s activity – so you can quickly see who’s busy and who isn’t. With real-time information about your team’s availability in one spot, you can easily make decisions on assignments and update responsibilities to maximize your team’s time.

Resource Management: Easy to Use and Powerful Under the Hood
Just like everything else in Smartsheet, Resource Management is easy to use, yet incredibly powerful under the hood.
The resource view dashboard reflects team allocations by pulling together information from the project sheets your team is already using. You can see who from your team is over-allocated and make decisions about how to manage everyone’s workload, all within Smartsheet.
