How to use project status report and templates


Hi, I'm still new to ss and how to use free downloads!

I'm stuck on how to use the Weekly Project Status Report Template like its shown in the image marked "report layout". I downloaded the template to which I have to complete the data (ref. image- "template layout". The issue is that I'm missing a key step to convert the template data into a clean format to share with leadership. Do I need to create this dashboard design? Thank you in advance.

    Hey @Nancy Pet

    The image on the template download page is actually an image of the Excel version of that Template.

    If you're looking to surface information from the Smartsheet sheet to Leadership, then yes! I would recommend using a Dashboard for this. 🙂

    Here's a free webinar that goes through building Dashboards: SmartStart: Dashboards
