How can I use data uploader?


As I'm new to Smartsheet, trying to use data uploader. I have one sheet (as Source) where the attachments are attached and I need the data (from attached spreadsheet) to another target sheet. Also, Is this possible to get data automatically from attachment to target sheet when ever new attachments are getting added to source sheet? Please advise.

Many thanks,

Archana Sahu

    Hi Bassam,

    Thank you!

    Actually I'm trying this only, however I'm unable to select target and source file, it is taking so much of time to reflect the files and once I selected, again it went off. might be some Internet connectivity Issue.

    Anyway thank you so much for your valuable time!!!

    I will try it again.

    Best Regards,

    Archana Sahu

    Hi @Archana Sahu

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Yes, it's possible, and I recently did something similar for a client to keep dropdown lists up to date.

    You'd need to add an Offload Workflow and an Upload Workflow.

    Make sense?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic day!

    Yes may be Internet connectivity Issue is the reason, please try the following:

    1- clear your browser from the cookies.

    2- check your internet firewall maybe they have some rules that decrease the connection speed.

    3- try to use data uploader in a different computer.

    4- try to use data uploader in a different internet browser.
