Use the Smartsheet panel for 10,000ft to assign people to tasks

To create a new assignment from Smartsheet with the 10,000ft panel, open the panel and ensure the following information is present in each row corresponding to a task you would like to assign:

  • Start and End dates
  • Allocation %
  • Valid managed user or 10,000ft placeholder in the Assigned To column. 

Once all needed information is added to your sheet, you’ll see the new unconfirmed assignments appear in the panel. Select Add to 10,000ft on a single assignment to confirm changes for a single user, or select Add All or Update All to confirm all your assignments.

When you assign a row, the primary field of the row (the task name) will sync to the 10,000ft schedule, along with assignees, allocation, and dates in a compact visualization showing the total allocation workload for each person.

After you’ve confirmed your assignments, select the project name in the panel to go to your project brief in 10,000ft.

When viewing user allocation in the panel, allocation is summed across multiple tasks. You will not see an entry for each row individually.
