Smartsheet merge in Google Docs: list sorting and/or filtering

Smartsheet Merge in Google Docs is a very useful add-on that I use very often. I can adjust a lot of things (creating/sharing/uploading GDocs and PDFs, as well as sending them to specific clients via email - just awesome). My only pain is to find the specific rows in a huge list of clients in the “Select Smartsheet Data” section. Unfortunately there is no option to sort or filter columns like in Smartsheet (or in MS Word merge function).

Does anyone have a solution for that? (...or do you guys at Smartsheet work on that functionality?)

    Hi Atus,


    You're right in that there isn't currently a built in way to search or filter through the Rows. I can tell you that adding this type of functionality is on the roadmap, however I don't have an ETA at this time.


    As a possible work-around, you may be able to search the page (ctrl + f - or cmd + f on Mac) for a specific term to find the Row(s) you're looking for. I've seen this solution floating around and it seems to work well for most people.

    Thanks, Joseph, 


    I will do so in the future - and I'm looking forward to the development - good to hear the news!
