We have been informed that the free user/collaborator feature is going away at the end of 2023 and that all users will need a paid license. Why, and does this decision affect all accounts globally (e.g. China, Japan)?
I hope you're well and safe!
Where did you hear this?
I hope that helps!
Be safe, and have a fantastic week!

I have not seen this announced yet, but following this. Interested in knowing the details.
Can you clarify exactly what you are referring to?
It's true that on a Pro Plan your collaborators need to have a license, but on Business and Enterprise plans you can have free collaborators. Here's more information: Dashboard widgets and sharing in the Pro plan
Hi Genevieve, on Thursday our IT department sent an announcement out stating "Starting January 1, 2024, Smartsheet is changing its license model. Most importantly, the ability to have “free collaborators” (those able to edit or view items in Smartsheet without a license) is going to disappear. This means that everyone who needs to do any type of viewing or editing of a Smartsheet will require a paid license." Is this inaccurate? Thanks in advance for any insight.
Smartsheet does not have any plans in the near future to change the Business or Enterprise plan collaboration model (allowing free collaborators to edit sheet content). This Sharing Permission Level chart identifies what actions are restricted to licensed users, but the ones without a * can be actioned by free collaborators.
I would suggest contacting your IT team to discuss the details of your contract, or work with your account team to clarify what collaboration feature may be changing if your contract is changing in January 2024. (For example, if your company is changing from a Business plan to a Pro plan).
Thank you Genevieve. Our company has an Enterprise license which is under negotiations. Still can't fathom that everyone who uses Smartsheet in our organization would need a license to do anything (including editing or simply viewing sheets) in Smartsheet. I feel something is being misunderstood/miscommunicated on our side.
My guess is that they are talking about the Smartsheet Advance package and connected users.
Be safe, and have a fantastic weekend!
Hi, Does anyone know if there is a way to send an alert if the value in a cell changes by more than a certain percentage? So, if I have 100 in a cell (text/number) and the value changes by over 5%, I'd like to be able to send an alert. Thanks, Vince
I'm sure this is super simple but myself and a colleague could not figure it out. I have some very simple data I need graphed for a project: Not Started, In Progress, Complete and then % Complete using the total. The pie chart for the Not Started etc. comes out correct: But when I ask it to graph just % complete, it does…
Hello, I am working on a training log for our company. I am trying to get the status color to turn green if training is completed, yellow if it is due in the future, and red if it is incomplete. I keep getting an incorrect argument. I had it working correctly when I was just doing red and green, but I really need that go…
