The sheet has numbers with a currency format. When a update request form is generated the currency format does not transfer.
From one Chris to another, it has always worked (and continues to work) for me.
In the image below, I've set a number of cells to specific currency formats, then sent an update request, updated the amounts (from 0) and then refreshed the sheet to show the changes.
The currency symbols are shown in the update form only as a guide. Deleting them does not affect the underlying cell format.
As you can see, I've left the Yen (¥) symbol in the CAPEX Budget field, but all the others I've overwritten e.g. OPEX Budget is now 5000000 instead of £5000000, yet the underlying cells are still formatted with the original currency formats.
I am also having this same problem as Chris Andersen, and the Currency format assigned in my sheet is NOT appearing in my entry form. I have assigned the $ number format to the entire column, not the cell because each row will need to be in currency format. Any help?
Unfortunately, as far as I know, it's not possible at the moment, but it's an excellent idea!
The initial value shows with the currency, but not the updated one.

I hope that helps!

So, EVERY SINGLE TIME a form is used to fill in a column, I have to REFORMAT that column to show currency?
Because right now, my column is formatted for US Currency. I have a form that users fill out to fill in that column. However, the currency format isn't shown on the form. And then when the form is submitted, it updates the cell with the correct number, but the currency format has no been stripped for that one cell. So now I have to reformat the cell back to currency.
Is this the intended behavior?
I hope you're well and safe!
Here's a possible workaround or workarounds
Would that work/help?

That is working....except that the problem with workarounds is that it then puts the actual problem on the back burner and no one fixes it. As far as I can tell, this has been a problem with Smartsheet for more than 4 years. This should be a really easy fix on the back end.
Why isn't it fixed?
Yes, it would be an excellent addition to Smartsheet features.
The best way is to let Smartsheet know and let others vote for it.

Are you guys owned by dassault systemes by any chance? This is the same way they do things....
I will try to do that. Thank you
No, Smartsheet isn't owned by Dassault, 😉
To clarify, I'm not a Smartsheet employee.
Happy to help!
Hi all. I am new to Smartsheet and I am building my first form. Is there a way to set up a form to show additional fields that will only appear after it is submitted? These new fields will be filled out by someone other than the person who submitted the form. They will be viewing this in the card view. Thanks for any help!
I hope I can explain this well enough it makes sense!
