    Exactly. If your organization utilizes Microsoft 365 (aka "Office"), you likely already have access to OneDrive right now. You can try and sign-in here using your sign-in for your computer:

    2023 update: I'm no longer working on Smartsheet stuff. I started working at Microsoft in 2022, plus I have 1-year-old twins at home and frankly, I don't have enough time to do Smartsheet anymore. It's been real, Smartsheeters!

    @TaliRXM Consider that what you are considering is tying the cloud storage of SmartSheet to your local device. That link would not be available very often and would require SmartSheet to keep track of something about your device, like an IP address. Your infosec team would probably not be happy with that!

    Understood. So my option is to pull it from OneDrive or Dropbox?

    Thanks!

    Hi again,

    So considering infosec & protection, how come the "Image Widget" has an option to upload from own computer?

    Thanks!
