I'm wondering if there is a way to show more columns within Outlook when adding things to smartsheet via the smartsheet plugin, or if there is just a better way in general to accomplish what I'm trying to do.
For example, if I receive an email confirmation for something and want to add it to the Task it is associated with, I click the "Add to Smartsheet" icon, search for my sheet, and then the Task column (and only that column) from my sheet appears. However, the contents of the Task column are pretty generic (e.g. Order Material, Create Drawings, etc.), and there could be multiple of each since most jobs require them, so it is not immediately apparent which row to choose. I have added columns like Project Description and Job # to further identify the task and allow me to sort by Job# or Due Date, which works fine within the context of the spreadsheet, but those columns do not appear within outlook so it is almost impossible to know which "order material" row to choose without trying them all, which of course takes longer than simply opening up the spreadsheet and manually adding an attachment.
Any tips would be appreciated!
