When a project is archived via control center, where do the workspace attachments go when the workspace is deleted. Are the attachments also deleted?
Hey @Samuel Mueller
This is a great question!
If your projects create a new workspace each time a project is provisioned, and if your archive action moves your projects to another workspace like this image:
Then the Smartsheet contents within the workspace (sheets, reports, dashboards) are moved to that other workspace and appear in a new folder.
However the attachments that were put on the Workspace level are deleted along with the Workspace it is converted to a folder. There's no equivalent place for the attachments to appear with the folder.
I would advise ensuring that those attachments are put on either Sheet or Row level locations instead of overall Workspace attachments.
Anything within a workspace that gets deleted also gets deleted. Same as in an operating system. If you delete a folder or drive, everything gets deleted. If you were archiving in the sense of moving to an archive area (possibly a workspace), then the attachments would follow.
All the best,
@Ray Lindstrom thank you for your response. Let me clarify, through control center when a project is archived, the contents within the project workspace can automatically be moved to a different folder to keep your data organized. When this happens, if there is nothing left in the workspace (sheets, reports, dashboards), control center will delete the workspace. I'm asking if it moves the attachments that someone may have added, or if it doesn't actually delete the workspace, or what actually happens.
I'm only referring to the attachments you can attach at the workspace level in this question:
The system may not delete the workspace if there are attachments here, I just wasn't sure and wondered if anyone knew what happens.
@Genevieve P. that was my suspicion. Thank you so much for the clarification! Just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing anything.
I have provided a dynamic view for my users to see content on-screen. However, I've been asked to provide a print option as well. Normally, I would export a report to PDF for 'clean' printing [that is, preserves layout and colours with pretty explanatory note in header]. However, I don't want my users to have access to the…
I was able to create tasks, define predecessors, and see the critical path associated with my project. Is there a way to see the duration of the critical path? In MS Project, I am able to see that my critical path is 113 days, for example. I can't find where I can the details of my critical path, past the tasks that fall…
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
