Adding contact group to drop down menu

08/01/18 Edited 12/09/19

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.

    I hope that helps!

    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.
