Scalable deployment

Smartsheet Control Center

Make changes across your entire Smartsheet portfolio at once


Smartsheet Control Center allows you to automate project provisioning, manage global updates and reporting across your portfolio, and archive your completed work within minutes.

In Airtable, you have to manually start with a template, copy an existing template, import a file, or start from scratch.

Smartsheet met our needs for a platform that would serve the whole company, including support of BYOD and mobility for employees. We've also proven that you don't always need a large-scale project management system. A spreadsheet-based system becomes powerful because it is easy for employees to use.

Robust project management

Edit Smartsheet dashboards with drag and drop widgets


Smartsheet offers robust project management capabilities that PMs love, including dependencies, critical path, resource management and more. Smartsheet training is also PMI certified.

Airtable offers fewer project management capabilities.

It's been a tremendous help for me when I'm reporting to the executive team. I can easily show the task lists that demonstrate that the team has thought through every detail for each event. Plus anyone on the management team can drill down, and view documents at any time if they want to find out what we're doing.

Enterprise-grade integrations

Smartsheet integrations


Smartsheet offers 50+ pre-built direct integrations with leading enterprise apps, as well as a host of premium solutions, and an open API to build custom integrations.

Many of Airtable’s integrations require a 3rd party Zapier account to connect.

With Smartsheet for Jira now, all of our reports are in one place. It's really helped with a lot of the redundancy that I was facing.
