I think there should be a feature where columns can be filtered just like how the rows can be filtered.
We are also thinking about how to super-charge column management! It's not currently part of our plan but we will make updates to this status if we believe we can make this idea a reality.
At times there are too many columns in a sheet and that gets overwhelming to certain audiences. It will be helpful if sheet owner/admin can create views or filters that can display selected columns only and these views can be selected by the sheet users (just like the filters). I understand that reports could be a solution but not in cases where the sheet has hierarchical data.
YES! With large sheets it is difficult for different users to wade through the info. And, when you use a report to filter columns, it doesn't pass over to Card View.
I agree. I think it would be great in the same filter dialog: When this filter is applied, hide these columns. This would allow creating views for a specific purpose that would allow users to very quickly perform certain updates.
I would love this as well.
Definitely have my vote.
I'm waiting for this feature for years!
Would simplify the use of large tables a lot, when you can't use reports for sub-tables instead.
@Smartsheet, please implement, shouldn't be very complicated.
Need this feature!
Smartsheet needs to create a way to filter columns instead of just rows. We are using forms to collect data but then there is no easy way to get the data into a readable format. Seems like an easy feature to add.
Isn't this what a report is for?
We often have different columns that need to be viewed for different users. It would be great to be able to select what columns are hidden using a formula instead of unhiding all columns and re-hiding the columns you don't want to see.
You got my vote, I submitted a similar update suggestion for this as well, basically asking for the ability to "hide" columns within each newly filter created. You can "hide" columns after the fact, but have to adjust them every time, not convenient when quickly switching between filters...it would be a great feature to simply flip between filters and only see what is absolutely necessary...especially on large data sheets.
The option to filter within a sheet is great and even better when you have a minimal amount of columns. I work for a company that uses a lot of sheets for data, and reports to work out of, and display/reference information. Due to some of the features being in the sheet and not the report, like the collaborative filter, there are some sheets that employees have to work out of, instead of reports. This adds to the possibility of errors occurring when working within the sheet. The sheets then have to be shared and contain data used all over the entire account, so an error in one of these sheets can ruin mass amounts of data.
If there was a possibility for collaborative filters for rows AND columns, the sheet can be used by individuals within different departments and focus only on what they need to see. 🙂
this would be a great new feature
I would love to see this as well!
This would be a great feature!

Although it's typical to need to run a few tests for a workflow or automation, it would be great if we had the option of previewing what the automated emails/notifications/alerts would look like for individual users with different types of permissions. A view "View As" type of feature.
When a project and tasks are set up with dependencies and durations, the project manager should be able to drive all task dates based on the project end date, not just the start date. Often mid project the delivery date needs to be changed. With Smartsheet, a project manager needs to adjust the duration of all tasks…
It would be great to be able to select a workspace as the template source folder while setting up a blueprint in Control Center. Currently you have to select a folder in a specific workspace. This change would eliminate the initial folder created at the workspace level, and would allow the end user to have all the template…
