Contains every Smartsheet item that you own or are shared to. Here, you can organize your Smartsheet items into folders and workspaces, and access your work apps. 


See your most recently accessed Smartsheet items. This list can contain up to 20 items.

Recently opened items

You can do the following actions in your Recently Opened panel:

  • Pin: hover over an item and select the Pin icon  to keep it at the top of the panel. You can pin up to 20 items here. The order in which pinned items appear is based on when you’ve pinned them—newly pinned items appear closer to the top.

Because the Recently Opened contains only 20 items, pinning 20 items in Recently Opened prevents other items from appearing in the panel

  • Unpin: Hover over a pinned item and select the Unpin icon next to items that are already pinned to unpin them.
  • Remove: right-click the item in the list and select Remove from Recents.

Unpinning or removing an item from Recently Opened doesn't delete it or remove your access to it. You can always access items you own or are shared to from Browse.


Add frequently accessed items to Favorites to find them quickly. Open a Smartsheet item and select the Add to Favorites icon on the right of its name.

If you’d like to remove an item from your Favorites panel, open the item and select the icon again.

Removing an item from Favorites doesn't delete it or remove your access to it. You can always access items you own or are shared to from Browse.


Select the Template Gallery icon for templates to create new sheets, reports, dashboards, and more. You can create blank items to build from scratch, import third-party files into Smartsheet as new sheets, or start from a template.
