 How you print from Smartsheet will depend on what you want to print.

To print this Do this
Sheet
Gantt Chart
Report
Click Print on the toolbar at the top of the Smartsheet window.

NOTE: To print, you'll first create a PDF file. The file can then be printed or viewed with your preferred PDF viewer.
Dashboard Click the Print button in the dashboard and adjust the print settings in your browser.
From Card View, the contents of a single row or card. Right-click the left edge of the row or card and click Print.

NOTE: The card will print in a vertical, form layout.

Avoid printing all columns (Grid View)

Before you print your sheet from Grid View, you can hide columns and then save the sheet. When you print, the PDF won't include the hidden columns.

Include blank rows in your printout

When you select Entire Sheet, blank rows will not be included in the printout.
To print empty grid lines, do the following:

  1. Enter a value into the Primary Column of each blank row that you want to print. (This will be a temporary value—you'll delete it before you print the sheet.)
  2. Save the sheet.
  3. Delete the values and then re-save the sheet.
  4. When you print the sheet, the empty rows will be included in the printout.

Gantt Chart included in the printout

To exclude the Gantt chart from the printout, switch to Grid View before you print.
