    I received a response to my ticket but unfortunately, it addresses the issue experienced in a browser, whereas my issue is related to the DESKTOP APP

    I have requested a response to my original query.

    However in case this information is useful to others, I have posted the SUPPORT response below:


    Please note that if you find Smartsheet is not loading, not responding, or failing to display certain items, the cause may be related to your browser, browser version, or browser extensions or add-ons. The steps below will help you troubleshoot and diagnose issues that may cause the error message that you encountered:


    • Open an instance of a browser in incognito or in private browsing mode. Try using Smartsheet from that instance of the browser. (For Chrome, incognito mode disables extensions automatically. It also eliminates any cache cookie behavior.
    • If Smartsheet works from an incognito browser instance, follow the steps below: 
    • Log out of Smartsheet.
    • Access the extensions for the browser that you use with Smartsheet. To do this, follow the steps for your browser version in the table below.
    • Disable all extensions.
    • Restart Smartsheet and see if the issue is resolved.

    If disabling extensions solves the issue, re-enable the extensions one at a time to see which one specifically was causing the issue.

    If you are connected on a VPN, kindly connect without the VPN or Proxy (if possible) Kindly test it on another network to mitigate the issue 

    • Disable all plugins and try another browser
    • Conduct both upload and download speed tests at testmy.net

    Good performance is at least 80% of the what you pay for (may vary on enterprise networks with bandwidth management. Some ISPs do not advertise/guarantee upload speeds

    If performance issues are observed, please work with your IT and ISP to resolve thenetwork issues. If the speed test performs well, network congestion may be causing poor performance in Smartsheet. Please  have your IT add network priority for the following:

    • Host: app.smartsheet.com
    • Ports and Protocols: HTTP (port 80); HTTPS (port 443)
    • Other ports may be used as well. If possible, prioritize traffic to/from Smartsheet through any port.

     Please refer to the Help Article below for more information.

    If after performing the troubleshooting provided above did notresolve the issue, kindly provide us with these additional information tofurther investigate: 

    • Screen recording of the steps taken to reproduce the issue 
    • Result of the troubleshooting steps you’ve taken 
    • Affected sheet name/ID 


  • I also have the issue in the desktop app, so still awaiting a solution
