Workaround for limiting access to douments

edited 12/09/19 in Archived 2017 Posts


We will likely have some smartsheet project plans that we'll share with clients, however there will be documents that we won't want them to see/access. The standard permission model is you have access to all documents if you access to the sheet. With that parameter, we do have a "not the most ideal" work around to go with using Dropbox, but hoping maybe others have identified similar/better work arounds that you might share?

    Smartsheet's permissions give anyone shared access to all attachments and attachment links. If you need to prevent people from being able to download attachments, creating restricted folders in dropbox is a great option.

    Google Drive is also a great option, as you're still required to share attachments from the Google Drive side for people to get access to them.
