Is there a way to add a contact group to the dropdown list in a contact list column?
Not unless your contact group has its own email address as is the case in many google products. Smartsheets itself currently only allows one email per contact column. Groups is not currently an option from within smartsheets.
But it should be. Please submit an Enhancement Request:
I agree - it should be! I can import a contact group and name it but I can't load that same group into the contact column - are you kidding? Seems like an easy win...
I've submitted an enhancement request as well. This will be a critical part during our evaluation to continue to use Smartsheet as it has made the management of our sheets untenable with a team of 100+.
was this ever resolved? I am looking to have a drop down contact list in a form as well.
Hi @Thomas Hoag,
It’s possible to have a contact list, but not groups.
Please submit an Enhancement Request when you have a moment
I hope that helps!
Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!

Added my enhancement request for this option. Would resolve a lot of issues when selecting contacts on forms and sheets, including maintenance of the lists.
New to Smartsheets and struggling with this same challenge. Is there a solution to this now that did not appear to exist a couple years ago when this conversation took place?
I'm working on a compensation request form that follows these steps: An HR Business Partner completes the Compensation Request Smartsheet Form that then triggers an alert to our Compensation Manager. Our Compensation Manager will insert the requested information. The HR Business Partner will be alerted when the…
I have many many sheets where column names are the same but data types are different (ex: some "Assigned to" columns are text/numbers and some are contact list, some "Project Name" columns are text/numbers, and some are dropdown list.) The choices in value type are driven by the many teams specific needs. This creates…
Is it possible to format a singular cell in a sheet to total the above numbers add in each cell of the column.
