Who can use this capability

Anyone who's been invited can use a WorkApp. You must have a Smartsheet Advance plan to create and edit WorkApps

When you are assigned a role in a WorkApp, you’ll receive a notification email that you can use to open the app. To see all apps you have access to, you can:

  • Log in to Smartsheet and navigate to Browse > WorkApps in the left panel. You will see the apps you are shared in the shared to you tab.
  • Login to directly.

Apps have unique URLs, so you can also bookmark the App Link in your browser favorites for easy navigation.

Once you’ve opened an app, you’ll be able to interact with the pages in different ways depending on the permissions of the role you’ve been assigned to. To switch to a different page or role, open the Pages panel by selecting the Pages icon on the left.


If the owner assigned you to multiple roles in the app, you can select your role from the Roles dropdown at the top of the page list.

Roles Dropdown

Depending on the configuration of each role, this will change which pages are visible to you, view only, and editable.
