How to insert a disclaimer in the header

Our Smartsheets are already branded and using our logo in the top right corner.  Our Legal Dept wants a visible disclaimer to be shown on each sheet that users cannot share any information on the sheet outside the company.

 

I tried to put the disclaimer in the logo area, but you can't read it.  

 

What is the best way to show a three sentence disclaimer on each sheet?  If it is the top line of each sheet, it messes up the sorting function.  Add a disclaimer or find a new collaboration tool - please help.

 

Ideas?

  • Not being able to freeze the top row is a pain when people will do sorts. The only workaround I could figure out was to use hierarchy, and basically indent everything under the top row. That way, sorting won't move the top row. 

  • Create a custom template with warning added to the first row, then ask your users to create sheets from the template. 

  • There isn't a cell merge function to make the verbiage go across the screen.  Am I missing something really obvious to everyone else?

    If the three columns to the left are 'fixed length', that is the users are unlikely to change in size, I have done something like

     

     

    I'm not proud of it.

    Yes, having cell merge capability would be really useful at times.
