Sight View by Log In

I have a Sight that I built for a customer to view and interact. Is there a way to set there view by Log In. I.E. customer logs in and they see the projects and data they are assigned to.

I have been told that this is not supported.  Anyone have any ideas?



  • Hello Shawn,

    There currently isn't a way to default someone to a specific Sight or other Smartsheet item at time of log in. 

    You might consider giving them the direct link to their Sight (right-click the Sight name at the top and select properties) and then have them make that their browser's home page.

    When you have a moment, submit an enhancement request to our Product team using the form under Quick links on the right.

    Thanks for the comment.  

    They have access to the sight in general.  

    What I am trying to do is when they open the sight it only shows projects/metrics by their login. This is so they can focus on their assignments and not have to sift through all other projects. 

  • I see.

    There currently isn't a way to do this with a Sight per se, but you can possibly aggregate date for them with reports using the current user criteria. You can add a link to these reports from a Sight. (Link to the reports with a Shortcut Widget instead of using the Report Widget, as that won't accurately reflect the "current user.")

    That might be a viable workaround.
