When I send out a form from Smartsheet, I would love it if the person I send it to CANNOT respond to the email. It would be great if they HAVE TO respond to the SmartSheet sheet that it was sent from. Not to me personally.
I presume you mean Update Request automations, which have a form in the email, is that correct? If so, there currently isn't a way to turn off the ability to reply to these emails. The Reply To address will either be the Sheet Owner or the user that triggered the workflow (depending on how it's set up). See: Overview of Automated Notifications Sent via Smartsheet
However, if the automated email was generated by using an @mention in a Smartsheet conversation, then the text in the email reply will automatically add a new comment to that row. See: Respond to an @mention directly from email

Hi Genevieve, thanks for responding.
No, I don't mean the Update Requests. I mean when I "share" a form to someone who is not in our group or included in our account. The "email" goes out when I do that, asking them to click the link below to respond. However, if they just reply to the email instead, then their reply comes to MY email address, not to the sheet.
I want the replies to always go to the sheet. Otherwise, the other people shared on the sheet do not see them. I have to copy and paste their reply onto the sheet!
Thank you for the clarification! Yes you're correct, if you send a form to a user via email and they respond to the email instead of clicking on the link, the reply will go to the person who sent the form. There isn't the functionality to have the body of an email auto-fill fields in a form, the user will need to click the link.
You could potentially adjust the custom messaging in the Send window to make it clear not to respond to the email, and maybe change the form name so users have to click on it to see the questions, if that helps!
We already do that, but a lot of people click Reply anyhow. It would be better if the person we send the forms to does NOT KNOW our personal email addresses. We should be able to keep them private. Seems to me that is part of the benefit of having them reply to the sheet, not to us.
Hello all! I have an automation workflow set up to record a date when a particular column changes to a specified value. Essentially I need to record a date when the "Current Stage" column changes to "Reevaluate/Schedule Final". See the workflow trigger screenshot below. I created this workflow and tested it on 11/16. It…
I use Outlook with my company. When a tagged email comes in from Smartsheets, I click on the "reply in Smartsheet" and it won't take me to any conversation box. It just opens the page, but not on the line that I need. Why is this happening? I updated this morning. Also, I get an Error message sometimes.
Hi - We number tasks in our Smartsheet grid using the format XXX.X. When we sort in descending order, the numbers are not in order. For example 200.0 appears below 001.0. Since it is in descending order 200.0 should appear before 001.0. We also want to start using four digits before the decimal point and want to know if…
