Editing uploaded files


I am project managing construction jobs and have been given the task of auditing contractors whilst they are on site. I have uploaded the audit forms onto smartsheet as an attachment and I was hoping to edit them while I was on site without downloading them and re-uploading them. The files I am uploading are word documents. Is this possible?

    Instead of uploading the actual Word document, you need to house it in one of the attachment options given, such as Google Docs, Dropbox, Box, etc.

    That will allow you to then edit the document and changes be saved back in to the attachment.

    SS is working with Microsoft to hopefully add OneDrive to the list of attachment options, as well.

    Question on this issue.

    Currently attachment is allowing either to attach a URL or upload a file or different file versions.

    But for editing, the user cannot edit online and it only allows to download the file and upload it again.

    Do you know if there is a plan in Smartsheet roadmap to enable a functionality for editing existing attachments online without downloading it?
