Desktop Application Ideas, Opportunities and Observations
Hi all - have been using the Desktop Application since just before public release (the first round of EAP comments) and have had ideas and opportunities slowly stack up while using it. Before I share the ideas, an overarching statement - I am a huge proponent of desktop applications over browser versions of a tool. I much…
Desktop app - clicking on link to open a new tab
Love the new desktop app, but when clicking on a link, it would be amazing if it would open a new tab by default. Or at the very least allow a CTRL+click or right click option to open a link in a new tab within the app. I use that all the time in a browser.
Dark Mode for Desktop App
I'm so pleased to see the release of the Desktop App. Such a key feature, so well done. It would be great to have dark mode included in the app.
Deploy Smartsheet Desktop App Updates via Enterprise Software Deployment
We recently made available to our organization the Smartsheet Desktop App. In our organization we do not have Local Admin privileges on most users' workstations. It came to our attention that the Smartsheet Desktop App will not auto update itself without prompting the user for a local admin account. We use SCCM as a…
SSO login for Microsoft to work on web widgets.
This one I find Important. If you are using Brandfolder, Sharepoint, Miro etc on a dashboard and you are not currently logged in, you get an error since you can not use SSO URL to log in through the web Widget. The workaround is to log in on another tab in the browser and then it works fine on the dashboard. BUT, if you do…
Linux Desktop App
Will there be a Linux release of the Desktop App? Since we are a webhosting and development company and all developers work on Linux machines, this would be very helpful. Thanks in advance, Jan
Desktop app - open text file attachments
One thing I really miss from the browser experience is being able to view text files attached to a row. PDFs display very nicely in the app with one click, but viewing txt files (which my team uses MUCH more commonly) or Word docs involves an entire process: 1) Click file name in Attachments panel. 2) Go to browser and see…
Desktop App - Display page name instead of URL when using copy link
When I copy a Smartsheet URL in a browser, and paste it in an email or word document, it automatically creates a link using the sheets actual name with the URL embedded. In the desktop app, when using 'copy link', it only brings the URL. It would be helpful if it had the same behavior as the browser, and created a 'link'…
Desktop App - Switch Accounts / Accounts per window
Admittedly, not a priority... but a nice to have. As a system admin, I have a couple of accounts set up for testing based on different access rights. Currently I manage this by running Edge under separate accounts which works OK. It would be nice to have either the ability within the desktop app to switch accounts (without…
