The New Smartsheet Design

Update: Our new streamlined layout is now in the app!

You rely on Smartsheet to execute with speed, and we want to make sure that you can quickly find and use the features that will have the most impact on your work. That’s why we’re updating our interface to make Smartsheet more intuitive — so you can easily access the tools you need to get even more done, faster.

Over the last several months, our product and user experience (UX) teams have been gathering customer insights and redesigning our interface. Throughout our extensive design and testing process, we’ve been incorporating customer ideas and feedback to craft a better Smartsheet experience for you.

Our updated navigation and layout will make it easier for you to find and use the most powerful features available in Smartsheet, and speed up the learning process for new users so onboarding team members is even easier.  

We’ll be rolling out updates over the next few months so that you can start taking advantage of them as soon as possible. In April, we’re launching a streamlined layout that makes it easier for you to find and use all that Smartsheet has to offer. Here’s a look at what’s in store:

Toolbar

Based on customer feedback, we found that most people expect to find formatting tools at the top of a sheet, so we’re moving the left-hand toolbar to reflect this.

Menu Bar

We’re adding a menu bar to give important sheet-level actions a more prominent spot on the sheet. The sheet actions button in our current toolbar (for creating new sheets, saving, importing/exporting, deleting, etc.) will now be a file menu.

The menu bar will also make it easier to create and edit forms, which enable you to collect error-free, consistent, and organized data. You’ll also be able to more quickly set up alerts and automated actions to get reminders before tasks are due, prompt users to provide updates, and automate repetitive work.

Sidebar

Collaborative information such as comments, attachments, Activity Log, and update requests will be accessible in a new sidebar.

Move from Idea to Impact — Fast

We’re constantly improving Smartsheet to maximize its impact on your day-to-day work and your organization. We’ll continue to keep you informed as we release updates to the interface and more. In the meantime, let us know what you think about the new Smartsheet layout!
