Get a tool that’s flexible enough to manage all of your projects, and lets you communicate and collaborate in real-time—so you can hit your deadlines.

Asana vs Smartsheet

How do Asana and Smartsheet compare?

Smartsheet lets you manage your work in a spreadsheet-like format. In Asana, you can plan and execute your work in the layout and view that’s best for your team’s needs. Here are three ways Asana is different from Smartsheet:

Work in real time

Updates are visible as you make them so everyone’s on the same page, all the time.

Communicate alongside work

Keep conversations connected to tasks, so teammates have the information they need.

Collaborate with external partners

Work with clients, agencies, and teammates on projects in one place so everyone stays in sync.

Keep work and conversations connected

Asana is built for managing and communicating about work side-by-side. Comment on tasks to answer questions, link to relevant work for more context, and tag teammates to loop them into discussions.

Asana boards

Choose the project layout—whether a list, board, calendar, or Timeline—that’s best for your team to plan, organize, and manage your work from start to finish.

Asana comments

Keep teammates up-to-date on work by adding them as followers to tasks and tag them in comments to loop them into discussions.

Asana task assignees

Add clients, agencies, and contractors to projects and assign them tasks so everyone can collaborate on work in one central place.

Updates appear as you make them

When you update work in Smartsheet, you have to save it so teammates can see the changes. In Asana, updates to tasks and projects are made in real time so your team is always working off the latest information.

The ability to communicate tasks effectively with my team is second to none. Everything can be laid out in different phases with tasks assigned to each team member with a due date. Having everyone on the same page and having project conversations right within Asana ensures we never miss a beat.
