Share a Smartsheet Attachment Through Email

Applies to

Smartsheet

Capabilities

Who can use this capability?

Owners, Admins, and Editors on a sheet can add, version, or delete attachments.

Anyone with access to the sheet can view and download attachments.

You can send an attachment in an email to anyone with a valid email address.

Some online storage services require people to have additional permission settings before they can access or edit the file.

The capabilities discussed here apply to all plan types.

Anyone with access to a sheet or workspace can send its associated file attachments to others through email. You can send an attachment, regardless of where a file is attached in the sheet (it can be attached to a row, to the sheet, or in a comment).

When you send an attachment, recipients will receive a link they can click to download a copy of the attachment or attachments.

The link in the email will expire after 30 days or after it's been clicked 100 times. This is a security precaution to prevent unlimited access to your files. If needed, you can re-send the attachment through email to generate a new link.

System Admins for Enterprise and Premier accounts can disable any file attachment options. (See Manage Global Account Settings.)
