Add Formatting to Column Headers

    I'm sure Smartsheet already has a list of column header upgrades, but here's my opinion on a "minimum viable product" when/if released:

    • alignment (center, left, right, justified)
    • rotation (0,30,60,90)
    • font size
    • font style (bold, italic, both)
    • font color (easiest palette to implement)
    • header fill color (multiple and single header - don't want to change every column one by one)

    Would be nice to have:

    • font effects (underline, strikethrough, superscript, subscript)
    • wrap/unwrap text in column header
    • ability to format column headers in reports (if report only pulls from one sheet, ability to retain sheet column header formatting)
    • published sheets: turn on/off column header formatting (on by default)
    • dashboards: turn on/off column header formatting (on by default)

    Any news/updates on this since July?

  • Also interested in seeing column header formatting become a reality.

  • To start, I'd be happy just being able to center-align the column headers. Ridiculous that it's not yet available.

  • This would really help eliminate the need to have the entire row highlight to showcase specific columns to certain departments other than adding their dpt name in the title.
