What happened to the sheet summary report function?


As of today I have noticed I can no longer create a report from a sheet summary. Now, when I click the "+" icon on my sheet's page to create the report, Smartsheet takes me to the create a solution page. From here, there is no option to create a report. However, from my folder I can select the create button/dropdown to choose report, it just no longer asks if I want a row, or sheet summary. Can you explain what changed, and if you can help? TIA!

    Hi @Amy Tyner

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Are you part of the EAP?

    This is what I see when I click the + Create in a Workspace.

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic week!

    Hello Andree,

    Thank you for your reply. Therein lies the issues, as it seems one now has to be in the Workspace (and not on a sheet) to create a report now. As an example I have now noticed that anytime I want to create a report based on a sheet I am working on, Smartsheet is always taking me to the odd "create a solution" page where, there is no report option. What is different today versus just weeks ago is that in order for me to create a report, I have to leave my sheet, go to my workspace, click the "Create" button/dropdown, select "Report" and then save it in the desired location. These are extra and unnecessary steps that didn't exist just weeks ago.
