Request a sheet snapshot

Applies to

Smartsheet
  • Business
  • Enterprise

If you are a licensed sheet owner or admin, you can request a snapshot of your sheet. Use this when you need a recent backup copy of a sheet from a specific point in time. 

  1. Open the sheet’s Activity Log and adjust the Start Date and End Date as needed.
  2. Navigate to the specific change and select Request a Snapshot

Smartsheet will email the snapshot to the sheet owner in an Excel file. The Excel file contains sheet data and comments only. Conditional formatting, attachments, notifications, cell history, and any formulas that are not compatible with Excel (column formulas, @row, @cell, cross sheet formulas, etc.) are not supported.

You can submit one snapshot request at a time on any given sheet. Once the first request is complete, you can file an additional request.
