What other options do we have to format the sheet better, perhaps even in sections?
Merging some cells will help get rid of the lines and make things look better spacing wise.
My advice would be try not to format a sheet in the way one would in Excel. With Smartsheet there isn't the level of design tools available as in Excel. I advise my delegates to think of Smartsheet more inline with a database table storage rather than a spreadsheet. You set up columns with datatypes, the data needs to be contiguous in order for formulae and functions to work effectively. (i.e. blank lines break automatic formulae autofill and can cause issues in other functions).
Use Dashboards to present the data from the sheets in a more pictoral way if needs be.

Unfortunately, it's not possible at the moment to merge cells, but it's a great idea!
Please submit an Enhancement Request when you have a moment.
There are some tricks. Coloring and hierarchy are two.
Would that work?
Hope that helps!
Have a fantastic day!

This is really sad to know that this request of adding "merging of cells" as a function to smartsheets has been requested time and time again at least since the beginning of 2015.. 5 years and this simple function is still to hard to handle.😪
How can a feature as basic (perhaps not technically) not be implemented by now?
And why can't I upvote an existing feature request? . need to sort this out if you're going to be taken seriously.
I am new to the group and looking forward to learning more about utilizing Smartsheet! I have a colleague that wants to get notifications of new uploaded documents, but only to one row, not the entire sheet. Is this possible?
I set up a workflow that when a box is checked and it is a certain market, the workflow is to run daily by sending an email to specific group of people to alert that particular box is checked. The boxes are being checked at around 4pm but the automation email is not being sent until 1am or 3am the following day. Am I…
I'm on a trial basis. I entered all my Tasks/Descriptions/Dates, etc and they look good in Grid view. However, when I switch to Gantt, one one of them runs across a variety of due dates. I'm sure I'm missing something
