Automation - Improved "Change Cell Value" Action based on Cell Type
The "Change Cell Value" action when doing automation leaves a lot to be desired. Currently it seems to only be able to affect Text/Number, Dropdown, and Checkbox columns. There is a separate action to fill out a date for Date cells, but that is also very restrictive in that it only can enter the date of when the automation…
Custom Colors for Sheets
While it is wonderful that we now have the ability for custom colors on Dashboards, it would be truly helpful to also have this same ability in Sheets. It would be really helpful for some of our projects because our district uses certain colors to call attention to various district initiatives or our district instructional…
Clear buffer on a form after use
Avoid the form from saving your information when clicking a field.
Automations for time based requirements
Currently we can only use filter expressions and automation that are based on current day or previous day etc. Why can't we filter by past hours or other similar terms? It would add so much functionality to Smartsheet in its various functions, such as project for one when assigning task durations by hours or to filter…
Allow formulas to function in reports
Currently formulas do not update while in a report. If a value changes, you must refresh the report or window to see the updated formula. This creates a lot of confusion since we use reports to gather updates, which results in me being told "your smartsheet is broken" because the formula columns do not update.
Auto adjust Report Widget height
Currently, if the report widget height is set to display 20 rows without scrolling then when the report has only 10 rows the dashboard displays blank space for remainder of 10 rows. The white space in the dashboard, in this scenario, is often complained by our users. It will be great if Smartsheet can auto adjust the…
Desktop app - open text file attachments
One thing I really miss from the browser experience is being able to view text files attached to a row. PDFs display very nicely in the app with one click, but viewing txt files (which my team uses MUCH more commonly) or Word docs involves an entire process: 1) Click file name in Attachments panel. 2) Go to browser and see…
Desktop App - Display page name instead of URL when using copy link
When I copy a Smartsheet URL in a browser, and paste it in an email or word document, it automatically creates a link using the sheets actual name with the URL embedded. In the desktop app, when using 'copy link', it only brings the URL. It would be helpful if it had the same behavior as the browser, and created a 'link'…
Desktop App - Switch Accounts / Accounts per window
Admittedly, not a priority... but a nice to have. As a system admin, I have a couple of accounts set up for testing based on different access rights. Currently I manage this by running Edge under separate accounts which works OK. It would be nice to have either the ability within the desktop app to switch accounts (without…
Calendar App - Half-Year or Multi-Year view per column
I work with multi-year roadmaps and timelines. I would like the Calendar App view similar to current "multi-month", but be "half-year" or "multi-year". Thus, each column is a half-year or full year in length and can still follow the current range restrictions of 4-12 columns of view.
