Comments/Discussions from Forms

I would like to be able to map to the comments/conversations string from form entry.

I have seen a couple of questions about this over the last year, and the answer has been,

"Unfortunately, it's not possible at the moment, but it's an excellent idea!".

Just wondering if this was ever achieved?

As a work around, I just a comments column to the form/sheet, but I love having it all archived in the row comments. Any other work arounds that anyone has discovered?

    Hi @Vanessa U.

    I hope you're well and safe!

    That seems like it's me that has answered a couple of those posts. 😉

    Not sure I follow!

    Can you elaborate on how you'd like it to work?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

  • Hi Andree,

    Yes, I do think you have answered this a few times. I created a form to add new rows to an existing Smartsheet. The users asked if there was a way to add comments to the row through the form. My understanding is that you can only add comments to an existing line. I created a free-form comments column and added that to the form for the initial row addition, but obviously this won't feed into the row comments. Hope that makes sense?
