Some Files are just read-only in mobile apps, some are editable - how to change that


I am finding that, with a pattern I have not understood, that some of my Smartsheets are editable in the mobile app, and some are not (read-only). No logic behind that that I can see.

I thought maybe reports of files are read-only in mobile but no, I have reports I can make changes to (ie. change the underlying sheet) and others that are no editable. This, at least, ties to the original sheets, if the source sheet is read-only the report is too (I think).

I am the owner of the workspace and the owner of the sheets & reports. I am a licensed user.


  • why are some sheets editable on the mobile app, and some are not?
  • and how can i change that,
