Manual Update - Sheet Identification


Is it possible to include the sheet name when manually requesting an update to rows? Currently when I send a manual update request, the recipient sees the row data to update but does not know what sheet (or project) the request is related to.

    Hmmm... That's actually kind of odd for Smartsheet. I am kind of surprised that no one has brought this up before, but you're right. A manually sent Update request does not include the sheet name. You would have to manually add it to the Subject or Body of the message.

    I suggest that you Submit a Product Enhancement Request as that would be a pretty handy feature. The only thing I found is a very small hyperlink at the bottom of the email that says "Go to the sheet" (see screenshot), but even that seems like more trouble than it's worth as going to the sheet to find out what it's all about defeats the purpose of sending an update request. At that point you may as well just send them an email with a link to the sheet.
