Insert image to cell in batch

01/23/22

Before I write some code, I am checking if this functionality exists.

I have 400 images that will be uploaded to a Smartsheet in a batch mode.

These are to be inserted into a cell in a column, not uploaded/attached to rows or the sheet.

I only see the manual process of

  • right click the cell
  • select Insert Image
  • select Upload a File
  • repeat for next cell

Use Case 1: into a new sheet

Use Case 2: into an existing sheet's column

Thanks,

Craig

    Long time no see! Hope all is well.


    I can't think of any way native to SS that would work for this. @Genevieve P. Do you have any ideas?

    Hey Paul,

    I am extremely doubtful there is a method via the GUI that I have overlooked.

    It has been a while. Thanks for the well wishes. Back at ya.

  • Hi @Paul Newcome and @J. Craig Williams

    You're correct - there's no way to bulk upload multiple, separate images into cells/rows in the UI.

    After you've inserted one image you can drag-fill that same image down the column (versus needing to re-upload per-cell), but that's it as far as I know.

    Cheers!
