Who can use this capability

Sheets and reports can only be transferred to a licensed Smartsheet user. 


If you’re shared to an item, you can request ownership of that item. If the item is in a workspace, you must also be shared to the workspace. 

See Sharing Items for more information.

Only licensed users can request ownership of a sheet, report, or dashboard

Smartsheet will notify the owner of your request. You’ll receive notification once the request is approved or declined. Shared collaborators remain shared and retain their sharing permission levels.

To request ownership of Smartsheet items, you and the owner must be in the same organization.
