Each year, Smartsheet hosts a hackathon called “Hack the Sheet.”
During this hectic, exhilarating, and productive week, our entire product and engineering teams get to work on projects they are super passionate about. We divide ourselves into teams based on interest, have some late nights, and are judged by peer and leadership panels.
My team worked to build a number of new formulas, all highly requested by Smartsheet customers, that we believed would significantly improve user productivity. We set a goal of creating six new formula functions by the end of the hackathon. We ended up building 24!
As many of these functions were on the wishlists of our most enthusiastic customers, we know they will help teams in every industry to be even more effective. For the complete list, check out the updated Smartsheet Formulas Example sheet and apply the filter named Formulas added in July 2019.
We’re also releasing performance enhancements that will improve formula speed within your sheets and coming soon...formula support in contact columns!
We’re happy to share these changes with you, and look forward to many more to come.
