If I have a list of employees I would like to manage it in one place so if I change it once the change is updated anywhere the drop is used. I would also the like the drop to shrink based on options chosen in other columns. For example if I have a list of employees I would like to show only the employees in the state I selected and maybe shrink it further if I select a manager so it only shows the employees that report to that manager....
I would too love to see dynamic dropdown lists for forms.
This is an essential requirement for many purposes, such as assigning homework to students in a class.
Both Excel and Google Sheets come with this feature built-in.
I won't consider using Smartsheet unless it includes this functionality.
Filtered drop-down lists according to category selection are much needed in forms.
When I select the category, I need a filtered sub-category accordingly.
💪 Great idea! And if the values could be obtained through a formula, coming from another sheet, it would be almost perfect. 😉
This would increase the usage of Dynamic view for a number of our users. Please put it in soon
This would be a HUGE feature! You could even reuse current functionality to get you at least 1/2 way there - by exposing your Cell Linking functionality to the Values field in the Drop-Down selection of Column Properties, this would be a major step in the right direction.
I would love to create a drop down list that references a 'Master Table' of employees. Several of our KPI tracking sheets require selection of Employee Name and for every new hire class, I must open 8-12 different sheets to update the dropdown list with new names. For any sheets that use Form entry, I also update the logic so I know when a form user has entered an employee name that is NOT on the list to ensure all are represented.
My dream is to be able to create a master list of employees and have all my various sheets with the "Employee Name" dropdown reference back to that master sheet. With 2-4 new hire classes each month, it would be a huge time saver! Thanks!
BTW - we are on the Enterprise plan, no add-ons or extra features at this time.
Completely agree!! This is a much needed feature!!
We absolutely need this capability!
It would be great if I could select from a drop down in Column 1 - and that choice will then determine which drop down appears in the Next Column. Cascading or waterfalling dropdowns is a feature that I wish was a lot sooner on the roadmap that some of the other items that are being released. This would be insanely useful to our users.
+1,000,000 to have Waterfall/Hierarchical/Conditional/Cascading dropdown lists.
This is a wonderful idea but it would put in the dent of use case for DataShuttle.
It would be nice if I could update dropdown data via the API though, currently I'm only able to remove an entire row and remake the entire row with new dropdown data. I'm assuming this is by design, as like said previously -- would put a dent in the use case for datashuttle.

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…
