Admin Center: Manage Smartsheet contact groups
Group Admins can organize contacts into groups. For example, a Group Admin can create a specific group for all employees in the marketing team. After the Group Admin creates the group, anyone on the plan can share and send information to that group.
Create a group
- In the lower left corner, select your account icon and then select Group Management.
- In the Account Summary section on the Groups tile, select Manage Groups.
- On the top right, select Create Group.
- Enter the group details in the Create Group pane.
- To add group members in bulk, in the Add Members tab, copy and paste up to 1,000 email addresses from an Excel or .csv file.
- Select Create.
The group appear on your contact list, and you'll automatically be a member. Learn more about working with Smartsheet contacts.
Manage an existing group
Any System Admin or the group's owner can make changes to an existing group.
Group admins cannot remove users from groups they don't own. To remove users, you must be the group owner or system administrator.
To make changes to an existing group, double click the group row or select the More icon on the right side of the row.
