Integration with smartsheet

Product implementation and execution schedule can be build up with much more detail in smartsheet. A combination of aha! and smartsheet can be a much more powerful tool for our customer.

    Through the use of features, release, notes and custom fields, Aha! presents a comprehensive solution for managing product implementation and execution schedules within Aha!  Along with the ability to manage this information in the same place as roadmap planning.

    At this time based on current priorities and general feedback from the community, we are unlikely to make changes in this area in the near term. We hope you can understand.

    We have some users in our organization that are established within Smartsheets while our analysts utilize the superior functionality of Aha! for our own work. It would be nice to connect to Smartsheets to integrate those users where it doesn't make sense to move them from an application they have already invested their time and are comfortable with.

    I completely agree with the users below. We use Aha! for our product management, but Smartsheet for our project management and would find it quite helpful to ensure the two are aligned.

    Smartsheet is quickly becoming the sole source of truth for many orgs. It would be beneficial to at least be able to integrate on a reports level to tie into greater organizational reports. We now have individuals doing double the work with ensuring their Aha! is running effectively and updating smartsheet reports for higher level viewing.

    Would love to see this reconsidered by the Admin team. While Aha! offers a comprehensive solution for managing product implementation and execution, it doesn't fit well into our organization's use of Smartsheet for an enterprise view into projects across several departments. With 54 votes, and the use of Smartsheet expanding/growing, it may be time to reconsider this integration.

    We have other departments that use Smartsheets they would like to take our data and pull it in then add a field or two where they can put their own details

    I use smartsheet to collect business requirements from non-Aha users, ie. business leaders.

    And use Aha for roadmapping. Need to keep records in both apps synchronized.

    Highly agreed. Our company was hoping to jerry-rig a highly detailed Capacity planning solution within Aha!, via integration with Smartsheet. Extremely disappointed to see Aha! does not support this functionality yet, especially when the need was raised so long ago.

    Agree with Joseph Flahiff - an integration with smartsheet would definitely increase the value of Aha! and save our project managers and portfolio managers a lot of time and headaches.

    Aha is great for product strategy, release planning and feature tracking whereas, smartsheet is great at managing details across different initiatives --they should be able to talk to each other.

    the ability to interface cleanly Aha! / SmartSheet would be a significant benefit. Smartsheet for the down and dirty details and Aha! for strategic planning.

    Even with the reporting enhancements, our challenge is with the different jobs being done between Aha and Smartsheet. We NEED both - Aha for the roadmap and all of the collateral necessary (initiatives, features, releases), and Smartsheet for the more detailed project plans, budget analysis, and resource allocations. Instead we have to try to shoehorn custom fields into Aha so we can see stuff that's tracked in Smartsheet but needs to be in the same display/notebook, and we have to maintain data in 2 places since there's no integration today. You considered this feature over 3 years ago. PLEASE re-consider it again now.

    Our organization requires Aha to SmartSheet integration, is this capability up for reconsideration for Aha to implement?

    As Viktoria mentioned, we have other teams not using Aha and we all have to roll up to a Portfolio team who is using Smartsheet (which everyone here has). So it would be great to bubble up some info to Smartsheet. Has anyone tried Zapier? They claim to have an Aha-Smartsheet integration.

    Aha! isn't designed to be a Project Management tool. SmartSheet has more functionality than just being a Gantt chart that our Technical/Project Managers & Sales Teams leverage. It would be incredibly valuable to be able to at least link to Aha! records from within SmartSheet.

    Integrating with smartsheet would allow us to incorporate our product development plans with other departments who don't use (and wont use) AHA for planning.

    Aha is great for roadmapping, but it's not a project management tool (and I would argue should not be).  Implementation is very complex and Aha is not sufficient for tracking all related tasks, dependencies and due dates across all funcitons in the company.  Because Aha and Smartsheet are not easily integrated today I spend many hours every week copying release names, dates and details into smartsheet.. technically both have API's so syncing CAN be done, but i'd rather not have to build an integration.  We've already had to build a custom application that runs on top of Aha in order to help our product managers effectively use it, if we have to do much more, may consider abandoning.

    Now that Aha supports syncing of initiatives to Jira, it's theoretically possible to use the Smartsheet-Jira connector to bring Aha items in to Smartsheet and keep them in sync. We have the pieces but haven't tried this yet and I'm curious how it handles the child initiatives (which we use as SAFe Program Epics since we got started before the Master Features functionality was added to Aha).

    I agree with Laura - especially for linking different teams which have their silos and investment in tool sets and learning.

    I view this a little differently.  We see aha as our roadmap and plan of record tool, while project management is separate but should be related.  For companies who already have a large investment in other project management tools, why not offer an integration ?

    What's lacking in Aha is a way to edit the roadmap data using a spreadsheet like view.
