Smartsheet Engage 2023: Recap & Announcements

Generative AI

Smartsheet is investing in Generative AI that will help in writing complex formulas, analyzing data, and creating custom solutions through natural language prompts, similar to the user experience of ChatGPT. These advancements will make Smartsheet more accessible to the casual licensed users providing the support to take their solutions to the next level.

Dashboard Improvements

With the creation of dashboard themes, users will no longer need to spend time updating the look and feel of each individual widget within a dashboard, as Smartsheet customers will now be able to pick from custom themes applied to the entire dashboard.

Smartsheet also shared that they have received the feedback that their creation of real-time data via dashboard is beneficial to users – but some claimed they needed to have a “snapshot” from a particular point in time to keep tabs on project progress.

Moving forward, Smartsheet plans to implement functionality to help users seamlessly schedule email delivery of dashboards.


Vast improvements to the overall Smartsheet infrastructure will allow users to create solutions that can consume larger data sets, with complex equations throughout all and improved processing time to foster more scalability.
