Report Builder Automations


Hello Smartsheet Community,

I'm building a report and I'm wondering if I click into an entire folder collection for my source sheet, will the report auto-include new grids that get added to those folders or will I have to manually add them as they get created?

    @Drea Mora According to how reporting is supposed to work, the answer to your question is yes. I have had success with the idea you are pursuing. Just be sure you select at the folder level (as you have done in your screenshot), not just every sheet within a folder.

    (But I still check every once in a while to be sure!)

    Hi @Drea Mora

    I hope you're well and safe!

    To add to Dale's excellent advice/answer.

    The only way to update the Report with new sheets is by using a Workspace or the Premium App, Control Center.

    If you select a Folder, it will not automatically update the Report if you add sheets to that Folder.

    Make sense?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!
