MFA and Logging In

System Employee Admin
This discussion was created from comments split from: Transfer Ownership of sheets.


  • Hi

    MFA has been introduced to my Smartsheet login however my Smartsheet account was created with an e-mail address that is not my Microsoft e-mail address need for authentication

    My account has been moved over to my Microsoft e-mail address however my sheets and workspace admin is still assigned to my old Smartsheet account so I cannot create automations etc

    I've tried logging onto my old Smartsheet account to change admin rights however the MFA won't allow me

    I've also copied my sheets but they retain the old admin e-mail address

    we have several users in our business that are having the same difficulties their account were created with an incorrect e-mail address

    Hey @UnisonDA

    Has this been resolved?

    If you're still seeing differences between emails and accounts, I would suggest contacting Smartsheet Support directly with the email addresses in question so that they can troubleshoot this with you in a private channel.
