  1. Install the plugin. 
  2. Enable the installed plugin from the Adobe app.

Tips for Smartsheet integrations for Adobe Creative Cloud

  • Comments and annotations for your proof won’t appear in the Smartsheet pane of your Adobe application. 
  • If you have access to a large number of sheets or have complex folder structures in Smartsheet, the sheet selector may be slow. 
  • You can't remove an image from a proof or delete a proof from the Smartsheet pane in your Adobe application. However, you can delete versions of a proof.
  • You must upload pages and artboards to a proof one at a time.
