Charts on the Smartsheet Mobile App

Applies to

Smartsheet

After you’ve added charts to dashboards from the computer desktop browser version of Smartsheet, you can view them from the Smartsheet App (available for iOS and Android). Your charts may have slight formatting differences when viewing them on the mobile app as opposed to when you view them on a desktop browser.

Why are my data labels for a Line chart not showing up in mobile app?

Due to the smaller screen size of mobile devices, data labels are not displayed on Line charts; however, you can tap on a data point to see labels and individual values.

Why are my labels truncated when on mobile devices but not when viewing from a laptop/desktop?

In order to maximize the visibility of the main chart area on smaller screen sizes of mobile devices, labels are truncated according to different rules than when viewing charts on the desktop.

Why are hours in my date format not displaying?

If hours are included at the end of a date label (for example, 5/27/17 5:00pm), the time component will not be visible on the axis label due to truncation. However, the full time label will be visible by tapping on the data point.

Why are negative data labels not displaying on my chart?

Currently, charts configured with all negative values won’t be displayed on the mobile app. You’ll need to view this on a computer desktop browser.

Why are my data point values formatted differently in between Mobile and Desktop?

There are certain elements that we must display differently on the Smartsheet mobile app due to the way the app interprets your data. Here are some examples of this:

Currency—If one cell in a series of your source data table has a different format (for example, a mix of US Dollar and Euro formats), the mobile app will not display any currency formatting (it will show 308,488.00, 277,783.00, and so on).

format-series

If all cells in a row have the same format (Euro), the mobile app will show the currency format for that row.

format-row

Decimals

f you have varying formats set for the level of decimal places shown in your source data table, the mobile app will show the full decimal value in the data label and tooltip (visible when you tap on a data point). Desktop will display in the format as displayed in the sheet. For example:

Actual data on the sheet

1.234

5.20

3.4111

6.12

Formatted data on the sheet

1.23

5.20

3.4111

6.1

Mobile Data Label and Tooltips

1.2340

5.2000

3.4111

6.1200

Desktop Data Label and Tooltips

1.23

5.20

3.4111

Percentages

If one cell in a series has a different percentage format, mobile will default to decimal format. For example:

Formatted data on the sheet

2.00%

0.2

3%

5.0%

Mobile Data Label and Tooltips

0.02

0.20

0.03

0.05

Desktop Data Label and Tooltips

0.2

Thousands separators

If one cell in a series has a different format, mobile will not display the format. For example:

1,362,811.00

207,000.00
