If I have metrics in the sheet summary of a project, how do I display those in a dashboard?
The simplest method would be to use a Sheet Summary Report and add it to the Dashboard.
Would that work?
Hope that helps!
Have a fantastic week!

Feel free to contact me for help with Smartsheet, integrations, general workflow advice, or anything else.
Thanks. I added a Sheet Summary Report and made sure that metric is displaying there. But when I go to "Add Data" in the dashboard metric widget, I can't select the sheet summary report to get the number.
You would want to use a Report widget to select the Sheet Summary Report.
Happy to help!
I saw that Paul answered already!

Let me know if I can help with anything else!
I guess that work (using a report) but you don't really get the nice formatting options that comes with the metric control.

Thanks for your suggestions,
Is it only one project or multiple projects?
At the moment you can't link the Sheet Summary outside of the sheet to another sheet or the dashboard.
Depending on your structure, I'd probably recommend creating a so-called Master Metric Sheet where you can collect all the metrics and then add them to the dashboard as needed.
Can you describe your process in more detail and maybe share the sheet(s) or some screenshots? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help. (share too, [email protected])
Have a fantastic day!
You could create a grid one each sheet (that can be hidden once built) that basically links all of the data from the Summary to fields that can be accessed via cross sheet references and by the Metrics widget.
struggling with the same issue.
it would be great if Metrics Widget would be able to access Sheet Summary fields. Did anyone submit already a request for this to Smartsheet?
There are undoubtedly others that have submitted an enhancement request to be able to use metrics, but every request counts.
Smartsheet has officially said that Metric Widget support is coming in the near future.
Please submit an Enhancement Request when you have a moment.
just noticed that it seems that it is not possible to link summary rows into other sheets. if this is the case, it seems to be another nice feature to be added...
Yes, at the moment it doesn't work to link from Sheet Summary to another sheet. My suggestion would be the same as Pauls. Collect the information elsewhere in the sheet and use that to link to the other sheets as needed.
Hope that helps!
It looks like it is already live!!! See screenshot I've just taken
Yes, it was released a couple of hours ago with a few other features. I don't want to spoil the Engage Keynote though. In approximately six hours, all will be revealed.
Is Engage streaming live? If so, where can I find a link? All I can find is videos from 2018 and the itinerary for this year's. I don't think it's even 5am over there as of the time of this post, but I'd love to be able to follow some of it at least in the background while I work...
It is! Here's the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NtYLA0_BEPE
Looking to connect a dynamic view of HR dataset to a Power BI dashboard pulling information from multiple other sources. Appreciate any guidance, thanks
Hello! I copied a form I had made for a similar event I am working on now. I made minor adjustments to the form to match the needs of the event. I distributed the form for people to complete, so the form is active, but the data is not populating onto my Smartsheet. Please advise. I would prefer not to have people redo the…
Hello, when I modify a start date on a task I lose the predecessor links. Is there a method to modify task start dates without losing the links? THANKS.
