Workaround for Voting
From other community questions I see that there is no voting functionality in Smartsheet but I am looking for a workaround. The use case is to have a system for internal enhancement requests to our ERP. Internal employees would have a link to a dashboard where they could look at requests that have already been submitted (through a form) and vote them up if they are looking for the same feature. Most of these employees will be using the free license.
Some ideas that might work if someone can tell me how to implement them:
- Assigning themselves to the row: This could count as a vote. Is there a way they can assign only themselves? A way to do this from a dashboard?
- Adding a comment: Similar to above, if they could add a comment that could be counted as a vote
- Any other creative way.
Related question: is there a way that I can link the request form in such a way that they can only access it once they have already looked through the existing requests? I want them to have to look before they submit to avoid duplication.
