There are three ways that you can give others online access to your dashboard:

  • Drag the dashboard into a workspace from Browse.
  • Share it directly with the Share button at the top of the dashboard
  • Publish it with the Publish option in the File menu. 

You can also print your dashboard by choosing Print from the File menu in the upper-left corner of your screen. 

Store a dashboard in a workspace

You can share a dashboard with a collection of people by storing it in a workspace.


People with permission to edit content in the workspace automatically have permission to view the dashboard, but to edit the dashboard, they require admin permission.


People shared to a dashboard with Editor or Commenter permissions through a workspace can't edit the dashboard.

For more information about using a workspace for sharing, see Workspace Sharing and Moving Existing Items into a Workspace.

Publish a Dashboard

To publish a dashboard, select the Publish button in the upper-right corner of the dashboard.

A published dashboard automatically refreshes once every 10 minutes. This behavior can't be customized or deactivated.

Share a dashboard

  1. Open the dashboard that you want to share.
  2. Select the Share button at the top of the dashboard.

If your dashboard lives within a workspace, you can choose to share the whole workspace or just the specific Smartsheet item from the Share button dropdown.
