How to adjust the column width in email notifications

Brent Nathan
edited 12/09/19 in Archived 2017 Posts

I have a sheet that sends out regular email notifications. There are about 40 columns in the sheet. What I am finding is that the columns are only a few characters wide in my email notification.  Is there a setting I can adjust to increase the width of columns in my notification emails, or at least expand some of the key columns? Screenshot provided of how each column is appearing in the notification email.

    Hi Brent,


    Smartsheet typically generates an HTML table that is compliant with the limitations of email.


    There isn't a way to customize the column width on this, mainly from having to conform the email width limitations.

    Is there a way to adjust which columns get added to the email? We have so many columns that get shown they become unusable in email view because each column is one character wide. Is it possible to just email the column that was changed only?

    Hi, this customization should be supported. E-mail notifications are very usefull and having the feature to specify the size of the columns would be a winner feature
