Any idea if/when Smartsheet will roll out the ability to freeze the top row in sheets?
Hi @Amy Strickland
Currently you can freeze select columns or use the Sheet Summary part of a sheet to keep information accessible from any location. Please let our Product Team know about your feedback (through this form, here) so that they can hear your ideas and consider the development of freezing a row in the future!
It looks like people have been asking for this basic row freezing functionality since at least early 2016. Productivity gained with some good Smartsheet functionality continues to be offset by productivity lost with missing functionality that is basic with other spreadsheets. Hopefully, Smartsheet will figure this out before others do.
Still waiting for this functionality.
It doesn't seem at all productive to scroll all the way up, to see what was the title of the column you are looking at, especially when you have hundreds of rows/tasks
It makes zero sense one can freeze columns but not rows. It's literally useless IMO. I'd prefer using Google or MS and creeate a sharepoint site for customer collaboration
Agreed, freezing rows is a function that would be greatly appreciated!
It would be super helpful if SS did something about this.
Will the ability to freeze a row be added?
when is it likely to get row freeze option added please ? this is basic staff
If I was feeling generous I would suggest that the reason we cannot freeze rows yet is that you're supposed to use the Column Names as the row headers you would be freezing.
Unfortunately, I am not feeling generous. This reason does not cut it for the simple reason that one would conceivably want to freeze more than one row at a time. This is obvious and pretty much exactly what I am [and the others above seem to be] looking for here. The fact that this has not been implemented [especially when it does exist for columns] is an egregious oversight without excuse. The fact it has been this way for seemingly 5 YEARS is galling beyond measure and should be considered a mark of shame.
The lack of transparency on the status and progress of requested features is a recurring issue on this site that NEEDS to be addressed sooner rather than later. Get it together Smartsheets.
When can we freeze rwws?!
@Genevieve P. and Smartsheet Developers;
Can you please provide an update on when this functionality will be built out? We need to be able to freeze rows in addition to columns. Excel is your competition. Why would we not just use Microsoft cloud based, live sheets for tracking then?
Thanks and will follow up.
Hi @Dylan Reitenbach
I currently don't have an update on the freeze row request, for when or if this will be built out. Please make sure our Product team hears your concerns and feedback directly by contacting them through this form!
As most have commented, is there a timelines of when SS will add the ROW freeze function , if there isn't a timeline is it even in your backlog ? Thanks.
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?
I'm wondering if there is a way to lock rows 1-12 out of the sorting and filtering of a sheet. I might have take out that part of the from otherwise I dont like how the built in dashboard moves when a sort or filter is applied?
Help shape the future of Smartsheet.
