Web content behavior in the Smartsheet mobile app

When you open a Smartsheet dashboard from the mobile app, you'll be unable to view Youtube, Vimeo, or other embeddable content. But you'll see it on the Smartsheet dashboard as an accessible link.

For identified content providers, the web content widget appears on the mobile app as an icon or logo. Unidentified content providers appear as a link icon with the content URL below it.

To access open the content in an external browser or app

  • Tap the widget.
