Direct Email Approval Button for Smartsheet Automation Workflows


Integrate a direct approval button within the email notification itself that allows users to approve or reject requests without the need to transition to a web browser. This button would perform the same security checks and record the same audit trails as the current browser-based approval, ensuring that the process remains secure and compliant with organizational standards.


  1. Increased Efficiency: This enhancement would reduce the number of steps required to approve requests, speeding up response times and minimizing workflow interruption.
  2. Enhanced User Experience: Providing a smoother, less disruptive experience by allowing approvals to be handled directly within the email client.
  3. Improved Accessibility: Easier mobile approvals, as users can respond to requests directly from their email app without needing to navigate to a browser.

Implementing this feature could not only enhance user satisfaction but also encourage more robust use of the Smartsheet platform for workflow automation across diverse environments.
