Printing tips and troubleshooting
Best practices that will make printing from Smartsheet easier.
How you print from Smartsheet will depend on what you want to print.
Print from card view
You can print the contents of a single card or row. Right-click the left edge of the row or card and click Print. The card will print in a vertical, form layout.
Avoid printing all columns (grid view)
Before you print your sheet from Grid View, you can hide columns and then save the sheet. When you print, the PDF won't include the hidden columns.
Include blank rows in your printout
When you select Entire Sheet, blank rows will not be included in the printout.
To print empty grid lines, do the following:
- Enter a value into the Primary Column of each blank row that you want to print. (This will be a temporary value—you'll delete it before you print the sheet.)
- Save the sheet.
- Delete the values and then re-save the sheet.
- When you print the sheet, the empty rows will be included in the printout.
Gantt chart included in the printout
To exclude the Gantt chart from the printout, switch to Grid View before you print.
