  2. Select Profile from the list on the left to adjust the following:
    • First and Last Name: Smartsheet displays your name in a sheet or workspace's sharing list, contact-list columns, and various other features.
    • Time Zone: The selected time zone ensures that timestamps, scheduled emails and other time-based actions reflect your time zone.
    • Language (Country): Smartsheet is currently available in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish (additional languages will be supported in the future). Your Language (Country) setting also dictates your default date format (e.g., mm/dd/yy or dd/mm/yy) and default thousands separator (comma or decimal).
    • Manage Email Addresses: Your account can have one primary email address, which is the email address used to log in, to track in Resource Management, and for email notifications, and multiple alternate email addresses, which can be used for sharing sheets, sending update requests, and adding to groups.

      For detailed steps about managing email addresses, see Change the Email Address Used with Your Smartsheet Account.
    • Change Password: The form will ask you to enter your current password, your new password, confirmation of your new password, and then click Save.

      The next time you login to Smartsheet, make sure to use the new password. TIP: You can also reset your password from the Smartsheet login page.
