Thank you for your comment.
I use the integration with Smartsheet for capturing data from Gantt chart s(project schedules), then produce progress reports in CDF format.
This 5 min video
shows the complete system at work. Once the video leaves the Smartsheet environment you will see a webMathematica application at work, and finally the CDF report generated with it.
My recommendation to community would be to experiment with Smartsheet as a platform for data aquisition where team members are involved - or customers - who have to generate input. As the sheets are essentially shared, think of situations where many team members at different locations have to input data.
Data can be anything: time series, experimental results, observations, in my case % complete values on tasks.
One can even organise a tagged data system and use the entries to feed a design application, an engineering app, whatever.
Students performing lab work, monitoring student performance, the limit is set by our imagination.
Capture the input of many team members who are working in coordination an synchronicity on the Smartsheet platform, then analyse and compute.
