Is Form User a SmartSheet term?

If yes, I'd like to suggest that you rename or at least change the way this appears in the circle/identifier. Maybe it's just me but I can't help reading FU as something negative. Thanks for listening.

    Hi @Lara Brandt

    Yes, we use the term "Form User" to identify if a change was made by a logged in Smartsheet user or via a form. That said, as far as I've seen the words are always spelled out, like so:

    I completely understand about the abbreviation. Can you clarify where you see this circle or identifier in Smartsheet? A screen capture would be appreciated, but please block out any sensitive data.

    Thank you!


  • Genevieve, than you for the response. The abbreviation appeared in Notifications. I know this commentary makes me seem like I'm back in high school but it was a fun little blast from the past.
