An unlicensed user has the ability to submit a comment when approving a submission but Smartsheet wants me to grant them "Editor - can share permission" in order for them to receive my reply. What's up with that???
It sounds like you're talking about the @mention feature in the conversations/comments window, is that correct?
If so, only users shared to the sheet will be able to view any comments, in the same way that only users shared to the sheet could see any of the grid data of the sheet (whether they are licensed or unlicensed doesn't matter).
You can share users with View Only permissions if you just want them to receive your tagged comment, but then they wouldn't be able to respond or add any more comments since that requires the ability to edit/add content to the sheet, which viewers can't do.
Our Help Center article on @mentioning (see here) outlines this perhaps a little better than I can:
People with Owner, Admin, or Editor permissions to the sheet can create or reply to a comment. You must be shared to a sheet to receive notification that you are included in an @mention comment on that sheet.
As an alternative, you could send an Update Request if you wanted a user who's not shared to the sheet to make edits to specific rows (see here for more on Update Requests).
Hope this helps!
I have a Smartsheet tracker that has been tied to one report. I recently created a second report that pulls similar information from the same Smartsheet tracker and that is working fine. However, the other report no longer shows any data in it for me or others. I have verified that we have admin access on the original…
I need a formula that will count the day that a row is "Open" but stop counting the days once its "Closed" both instances need to display the count. Here is a formula I was trying to use. Thanks =IF([Date Closed]@row > 0, ([Date Closed]@row - [Date Opened]@row), TODAY() - [Date Opened]@row)
I've been trying to do a simple check of whether or not the entry from the form has a returned value that is either yes or no and it checks 3 cell locations to see if any returned yes. The 3 columns are Dropdown lists for Yes/No and the Status is a Text/Number, is that the issues? If not how do i fix that?
