I currently use a Smartsheet Form-Fill that instantly creates commentary on a Tableau dashboard of mine. However, when a Tableau user is putting in commentary via the preset fields using a URL show/hide feature and then hits submit - the Created By reflects [email protected] on the Smartsheet

Does anyone know of a clever way to pass along the Tableau username back to Smartsheet at the time of submission?

I want this for auditing purposes and don't want to rely on a name drop-down or free-form field to do this.

    Hi @Mark Bit

    If the user has to be logged in to Smartsheet, you'll get the user's email address and could maybe match that against their Tableau username.

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!
