I need to create a dashboard that shows a continual stream of upcoming new products. I can create a report easily enough that will show this info but I need to include an image of each new item along with the data.  Is there any way to do this?

Alternatively - is there a more "visually appealing" Dashboard design or solution besides a Report that would serve the purpose of what I'm trying to acheive? Suggestions or Screen Shots appreciated!

    Hi Stephanie,

    Yes, you could use the web content widget to show the sheet on a Dashboard with the pictures in a column on the sheet. 

    Would that work?

    Have a fantastic weekend!

  • Hi Stephanie,

    As far as I understood, you want to link your pictures added into the cells to show them in the dashboard. So basically someone will add pictures into many rows and update them accordingly to your process. Then, you'd like to have those pics automatically shown within your dashboard? Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Such linking is not possible within Smartsheet unfortunately.

    As Andree said, you can add and update pictures within dashboard's widget only.

    But...

    You can still keep newest picture of your item linked in your dashboard as a link, so it will not be visible as a picture, but this link will be active and everytime you change the picture in the main sheet, this link will be automatically updated.

    All you need to do to achieve this is to add metric widget and point it to the cell within your main sheet that contains the picture.

    it is not the best solution but works fine.

    Best regards

    Marcin
