With Security & Controls, you can control permissions for global notifications and requests, group memberships, and account discovery. You can also set controls for attachments and supported chat providers.

Permissions

You can define granular controls on who is allowed to receive notifications and join groups in your organization.

Security & Controls

Notification and requests 

With Notifications and Requests, you can control who can receive notifications/requests from sheets based on the users’ level of access to sheets and memberships in the organization.

Groups

Control membership to groups created within the organization. By default, anyone can be added to a group. You can restrict groups to people who are part of the organization. 

Account Discovery

With Account Discovery enabled, people with an email address that matches the system admin’s email domain can make a request to join the org as a licensed user. This request shows up in the License Request Management section. If a customer has configured the Custom Upgrade setting, the request is forwarded accordingly. Customers with User Auto Provisioning (UAP) enabled cannot configure Account Discovery; UAP takes precedence over Account Discovery in those cases.

Content & Chat Controls

You can configure controls on what type of items can be published and what sources of data are allowed in Smartsheet. Additionally, you can pick from one of two supported chat providers to further simplify communication among your users while using Smartsheet.

Content and Chat Controls

Attachments

Based on your organization’s security requirements, Admins can choose to enable/disable different sources for attachments. Depending on the sources enabled, members in the organization can upload files from their own computers, by attaching a Link (URL) to a site, or from third-party cloud storage services including Google Drive, OneDrive, Box, Dropbox, Evernote, or Egnyte. For more information about uploading attachments, see Uploading Attachments.

Report Publishing

You can toggle off Report Publishing to immediately unpublish all published reports. Based on your organization’s security requirements, you can also control whether published reports can be viewed by anyone or only by people in your own organization. For more information, see Report Publishing.

Sheet Publishing

You can toggle off Sheet Publishing to immediately unpublish all published sheets. Based on your organization’s security requirements, you can also control whether published sheets can be viewed by anyone or only by people in your own organization. For more information, see Sheet Publishing.

Dashboard Publishing

Calendar Publishing

You can toggle off Calendar Publishing to remove the ability to publish a sheet's calendar view to iCal format. Calendars already published will become unpublished immediately. For more information about this feature, see  Publishing a Smartsheet Calendar to iCal format.

Images in Sheet Fields

You can toggle off Images in Sheet Fields to remove the ability to add images to cells in sheets owned by licensed users on your account. Existing images that were previously added to cells won't be removed. 

This setting is available to customers on an Enterprise or Premier plan. For more information about this feature, see Adding Images to Grid View.

Web Content Widget

You can toggle off Web Content Widget to remove the ability to add web content widgets to dashboards owned by licensed users on your account.
