Sights

I am new to Smartsheet so I apologies in advance.  I have used sights (dashboard) for a single sheet, however I can't seem to create one for multiple sheets, is this possible?  If so, I understand that sights simply pulls the information from a sheet and does not allow any calculations, however It would be great if the multiple dashboard/sight could calculate data from muliple sheets, such as sum up KPI's, is this possible?

    Hi Samantha-- Though all data in individual Sights widgets need to come from the same sheet, you can create Sights with multiple widgets, each representing a different sheet. For example, if you had three ongoing projects, you could create three Metric widgets to represent a key metric from each sheet. It isn't possible to perform calculations in Sights, but you could easily use Cell Linking to link key values to a single "Source Sheet" and direct your widgets to this sheet!

    Hi Samantha,

    I used sights in BETA, but dont have it at present....So I can not test this....

     

    You may be able to bring your multiple sheets into a single report and then use the report to feed your sight.

     

    Just an Idea....

    Sorry if it Bombs

    Christian, you're totally right! Samantha, there's a widget called the "Report Widget" that allows you to embed a report directly within your Sight, which might be an option as well when working with multiple sheets.
