Reports are great for sharing specific information from teams to leadership or external partners. However, it is a huge limitation for published reports not to have the ability to hide conversations. Conversations are a great feature for internal teams to be able to communicate on specific line items within a sheet, when publishing a sheet or adding a report as a widget to dashboards users can hide the conversations.
But this ability isn't available when publishing a report for some reason. This is a significant limitation of the publish feature on the report level. It has caused me to be unable to share certain reports externally via a link since external partners or leadership at my organization don't need visibility into the internal team's conversations on the specific line items.
This feature should be turned on so that users can publish reports without comments included so that they can share view-only reports via links to users not in their smartsheet instance.
