Can I use Smartsheet's "voting" feature, within my organization to vote on in-house ideas?

Scenario: Looking to create a form where users can vote on submitted ideas


  1. Only allow to be voted once
  2. View popular voted items
  3. Allow users to vote on ideas

Hoping someone here can help, thanks!


Thank you @Genevieve P. for the suggestion to post my question here!!

    With a few different components, you should be able to achieve this. My initial thought process would be the following:

    • Sheet for idea's list and current vote count/ sum per idea
    • Separate intake sheet for votes with at least a dropdown list for the idea's and a dropdown list of users. The structure of this sheet will depend on whether you want to allow multiple idea's to be voted on at once or not.
    • Formula to detect and remove/ archive duplicate entries
    • Create a dashboard, report and/ or publish the ideas sheet for public viewing of popular ideas

    Others may have an idea requiring less components
