My notification emails are now coming across with a colored background. Is there a way to turn this off in SmartSheet so that I don't have to do it when I forward my emails?
There currently isn't a way, from the Smartsheet end, to customize the background color of the notification emails that are sent out from Smartsheet.
Smartsheet typically applies a default white background color, or at least that's what I've been able to determine from inspecting notifications in two different mail clients (Apple mail and gmail in a browser).
Try double-checking to see whether these messages appear the same way in a different email client. (Outlook mobile, gmail in a browser, Outlook in the browser, etc.) If you're seeing something different depending on the client then your native version of Outlook is the culprit.
Thanks for the comment, but all of my other emails in Outlook 2016 on my Window's 10 PC come across with the default color as expected, it's only the SS notification emails that come with this color.
In the Colors Settings & Logo, the current Background Color is #FFFFFF, but the color in the emails is #F5F6F8. The color is most noticeable where lines and other White (#FFFFFF) things are in the email. It didn’t used to be this way. As far as I can tell, there’s no way for me to adjust this.
Based on my research, the change happened in early April.
I have this same problem. When viewing the Smartsheet notification email in Outlook, I get a strange background color. But, when I open that same message in Outlook web, it appears fine. I think it is because Smartsheet has put a "box" around the main message and Outlook itself is not rendering the box correctly. Smartsheet should just make the WHOLE thing white.
When I "send" a row to someone, the email looks fine. But, when an alert is sent out via an Automation, it gets this strange appearance.
Please upvote the last comment. This person is 100% right.
The emails look unprofessional in outlook which affect user adoption of the automations.

I've been trying to do a simple check of whether or not the entry from the form has a returned value that is either yes or no and it checks 3 cell locations to see if any returned yes. The 3 columns are Dropdown lists for Yes/No and the Status is a Text/Number, is that the issues? If not how do i fix that?
I'm wondering if there is a way to lock rows 1-12 out of the sorting and filtering of a sheet. I might have take out that part of the from otherwise I dont like how the built in dashboard moves when a sort or filter is applied?
Hello, I apologize if this has already been answered, I did search before asking. I recently downloaded a template and it had the google slides displayed in presentation mode.
