Format of Automations

Apologies in advance if this has already been asked, however, I struggled to find an answer on this when searching in both the community pages and the help guides.

I'm convinced I've previously been able to apply a setting on automations, such as alerts/notifications, which allow them to be displayed either vertically or horizontally. When I've looked in the automation set-up menu, there doesn't seem to be the option displayed.

Is this functionality that used to exist and is now no longer? Or is it one of those quirks of Smartsheet, where depending on certain parameters results in this not being available? Is/was it only available on alerts/notifications or can you get them on approvals/update requests too?

The reason I'm after changing it from horizontal to vertical is due to how it appears with a large number of columns i.e. very clumped up and not very easy on the eye.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

    You could use placeholders in the subject/body of the email to pull the row data and have it aligned vertically.

    Hi,

    I'm not aware of that formatting option existing. In form design you can move the header text to the side or top. That's the only related formatting ability I can think of.

    I'm curious to see what others say.
