Showing critical path items through reports
Hi, does anyone know if there is a way to generate a report to display only those activities/milestones on the critical path, rather than doing this manually through a check box filter. Thanks
Formula to update status on a parent row based on any child row
Hi, Wondering if it is possible to create a formula to change the status of a parent row when a child status is updated. We have a number of Parent Status's and Child Status's ie If All Children are Unallocated then Parent is Unallocated If All Children are Allocated then Parent is Allocated But if any Child is In Progress…
Enhanced Color Options?
It would be really great to have more color options for formatting our Smartsheets. Having a color picker that presents a broader range of colors or allows us to enter Hex codes or RGB codes would be a really helpful enhancement as some of the default colors are too bright or distracting. Having the ability to modify the…
How do you change or delete a recurring email on a Report?
I set up a report to be emailed automatically each week and the PDF puts the overflow onto separate pages, so I would like to change (to Excel) or delete that recurring email. I can't find where to do that.
Critical Path Indicator
Are there any options in Smartsheet that would allow me to understand in the Grid View if a task is on Critical Path? Is there a Column type? Formula? etc...? or some type of flag beside just the color of the Gantt bar in the Gantt view? We are trying to filter our projects for Critical Path tasks and our only workaround…
Automatically move item to different Smartsheet once completed?

Take a standard Project in Smartsheet, which has rows for each task (along with STart and Finish times) and has additional…
Pictures as Attachments
We use a web form on our phones to enter "issues" seen in the field. These include pictures taken by the phone. When we view these pictures later they are rotated 90d and there does not seem to be a way of fixing this short of exporting the image. Let me know if I have missed a function and if not please include a rotate…
Gantt Chart Child activity start date locked to parent start date..
Having a strange issue where I cannot change the start date of a child activity. It locks to the parent activity start date. Also if I try to add a new activity below the same parent, or if I create it somewhere else and move it to below the parent - it still locks it to to the parent start date. None of the activities…
Multiple selections from drop-down list, enhance database function
I saw this in a thread from 2015 but wanted to re-start it. Would love the option of being able to select multiple items from a drop-down list. This is handy for improving the database functionality. Many times I have sheets with dozens of projects/rows, and I need to list multiple values for a single attribute, then query…
