Event Reporting

Running your business processes — from team projects to strategic initiatives — on Smartsheet means that it’s critical to have detailed, enterprise-wide visibility into user activity. With Smartsheet Event Reporting, you can monitor user behavior, and view activity and actions taken within the Smartsheet platform. Event Reporting helps to ensure organizational compliance by letting you see the granular details of who is doing what in Smartsheet and when. You can quickly identify abnormal behavior and affirm that one of your company's most valuable assets — your data — is being used within the established guardrails.

It’s no secret that people across a single organization use Smartsheet in very different ways. Because every user isn’t the same, we give you the ability to grant user-based permission levels to make sure the right people have the appropriate level of access to the data and capabilities within Smartsheet. For detailed information on how to manage user permissions in Smartsheet, please visit our help article on this topic and download visual guides to get up to speed on how sharing works in Smartsheet.
