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. You can have 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.
