Is there a way to refer to another "row" within comments/conversations? Refer to unique rows via URL
As a Smartsheet user, I want to be able to refer to a row when typing a comment so I can better give context and easily give URL's to navigate quickly to the other row.
- I leave a comment on Row 1. Row 1 is named "Product Plan".
- Within the comment on Row 1, I'd like to quickly refer to row 72 (Task Name="Onboarding Process") and utilize a URL that would directly send anyone who clicks on it to to row 72.
- Ideally, I'd like to be able to just type in the title of the row (Task Name); i.e. "#Onboarding Process" and the comment section would have a drop-down to allow me to choose the row I want to link to (similar to when a user types "@" and a list of users appears).
Example comment: "All onboarding information can be found under #Onboarding Process."
Referring to other items is utilized heavily in competing products like Jira and Trello. Referring to another row could be as simple as utilizing a command like "#row72" or "/row 72". Or click the hyperlink button and link it that way.
This would enable users to easily jump from cell to cell and be able to navigate related cells much more quickly. It could even be utilized sheet-to-sheet. Is this an option, or is there a way to do this? If not, are there plans to add this feature?
