How to create a non-updating widget with key background/info

edited 12/09/19 in Smartsheet Basics

What kind of widget do I need to create to present basic descriptive text (background information) about a project? I’d like to pull the basic data from a sheet that is seldom updated.

The widget would be in a report about a real estate transaction. Background data I’d like to add in widget from the non-updating sheet includes info such as: county, state, tax parcel ID, acreage.

    You would use a metric widget on the dashboard to pull info from a sheet regardless of how often it is updated. That provides less room for error when replicating data.


    If the data is NOT on a sheet, you would use the Rich Text widget which allows you to type in whatever you want.
