Hi All,

I think this feature should be a part of the Smartsheet web client, however, it is not.  BUT it is a part of the mobile app.

When I go to type someone's name into a contact column field USING A FORM, it won't auto complete and show you a drop down of available contacts.

When you use the mobile version and are completing a form, it does show you a drop down of auto complete contact options.

Am I missing something?

There is a work around for this...and that happens by going into the contact column properties and selecting the names you want to provide as options.  Then when you open a web form, only the options you selected exist.  Although this works, this is EXTREMELY DIFFICULT to maintain.  I cannot go into every sheet and add (1) name for a new person we hire, each time.  If I don't then they couldn't be a part of the collaboration because they couldn't be assigned a task in an assigned to column.
