Publish Selected Columns

edited 12/09/19 in Archived 2016 Posts

I would like to see an enhancement that allows selecting columns to publish (similar to how columns can be selected for an update request).


I am using a trial of Smartsheet to evaluate it as a possible solution for task management in my company.  We currently use Excel to log work coming into a department and estimate lead times.  When tasks are completed they are sent to a "completed" worksheet.


This is how I want Smartsheet to work for me:

  • Create master sheet for all active tasks and all associated tracking data
  • Create team sheet which will include all active tasks but hide columns which are not needed.
  • Create outside-department sheet which will hide and lock some columns.
  • As tasks are edited on any sheet the edits affect all versions.
  • As tasks are completed they are moved to a "completed" sheet and are no longer found on above versions.

Cell linking isn't working well for this because links need to be manually created/deleted when rows are added or removed from the master sheet.
