At Smartsheet, we’re always looking for ways to help you manage work more efficiently.  Whether that’s adding more project management functionality, like Resource Management, or refining the app with some smaller enhancements that have a time-saving impact when it comes to core features like printing, we're always trying to help you boost efficiency.  

The latest update to Smartsheet includes some of these more subtle refinements that have a big impact on your day in the long run – and are some of our most highly requested updates.  

Here’s a quick look at what's new.

Save Your Print Settings

Sharing your project sheet with the rest of your team is a great way to keep everyone on the same page and an excellent resource during status meetings – displaying your Gantt chart on a large monitor or even a tablet is an awesome visual reference point for progress and upcoming due dates.

That being said... sometimes you’ve just gotta print.

The first step to printing in Smartsheet is to save your work as a PDF.  Now, when you define the settings on your PDF, you’re also setting your default print settings.  You can use these same settings each time you print, or use them as a quick starting point for simple modifications.

For a little help printing your Gantt chart, our Support Team has a few handy pointers in this blog post.

Updates to Highlight Changes

Turning on Highlight Changes in any of your sheets is a great visual tool to quickly find new information that’s been recently added to your sheet.  

Recently, we added a new option to Highlight Changes – now you can quickly identify changes that have been made to your sheet since the last time you opened it by selecting the drop-down value of ‘I last viewed this sheet.’

Here’s a quick overview of a few different ways to track changes that have been made to your sheet.

Just a few small changes to make managing your work in Smartsheet a little bit easier (with lots more coming soon).  What do you think?  We’d love to know!

Comments

A couple of other notable additions: 1. If prior to printing, you select a row or rows, then only the selected rows will be printed. This works for disjoint selection too, so you can select only row 4 and row 9 and have just those two rows printed. 2. When printing out Gantt charts, the list of which fields are displayed on the left side of the print out is now displayed. You used to have to waste time switching context and selecting fields, but no more.
