Hi. Is there a way to adding files to a Smartsheet form directly from Google Drive without having to download it to a computer and then uploading it again to the form?

    Hi @bruno.benavides

    Smartsheet forms currently require the attachment to be uploaded from your computer versus an online storage location. You can add attachments from online locations directly to the sheet (see here), or provide a text field in the form for users to input a URL link, if that would help.

    Please let the Product team know of your feedback by filling in this form, here.

    Thanks, Genevieve. I filled the feedback form to request a change allowing users to upload files from a web location to a form. My organization is moving towards 100% cloud-based operations and uploading files from personal computers won't be allowed in the future.
