Log automated workflow actions on the Activity Log
For compliance purposes, it would be helpful if the actions of automated workflows would log on the Activity log. For example, when automated messages are sent it would be helpful for the Activity Log to date and timestamp that action along with the name of the workflow. Lots of us using SmartSheet need robust audit trails…
Image import from Excel/Sheets
When importing a spreadsheet from Excel or from Google Sheets, it would be SO helpful to have embedded/pasted images come into the new smartsheet as attached images. Use example: Users copy/paste screenshots into a Google Sheet being used as a bug tracker, because Google Sheets makes it very easy to do, but then they're…
Allow Parent Row Update Request to Include Children Rows
The idea: When creating an Update Request for a parent row, allow the selection and inclusion of Children rows. When creating an Update Request, you can specify which columns you want to include in the request. I recently encountered a situation where I wanted a user to update a section of rows (Parent + 5-6 Children). In…

Custom Visualizations in Card View: horizontal rows & swim lanes

Version Control/Backups That Maintain Cell Links

Yes, you can view history on…
Provide users with the ability to Print a Grouped Report
Per the 1.5 years of queries being made, I believe there is suitable interest from the Community that Smartsheet provides the basic functionality of being able to print a Grouped Report. The system currently reverts the Report to a basic Sheet when Print is selected. This is not suitable or acceptable. We've stopped…
Use initials instead of username for display
It would be great to be able to replace my full user name (which is kind of long) with initials when displaying on the sheet. Using the "latest comment" column, my name takes up a a lot of screen space.
I need to reference PI for circle maths. a PI() function or a universal variable would be very useful and I'm frankly shocked it doesn't exist already. It'd function exactly like TODAY() but a number instead of a date.
