Smartsheet is an online project and task management app with advanced collaboration features. It enables teams to increase productivity using cloud, collaboration, and mobile technologies. It is used to assign tasks, track progress of a project, manage calendars, and share documents. The spreadsheet-like layout makes it easier to feed data, thereby improving productivity, collaboration, and efficiency.


Authorization means granting Flow Express the permission to make authorized calls to Smartsheet on your behalf. This process of authorizing involves connecting to your account in Smartsheet that you want the flow to use. 

Let’s look at how to add your account. 

In the ‘Authorization’ step, click ‘Authorize’ or ‘Add an account’ located at the bottom of the page. This will open a new dialog that will prompt you to log in to your Smartsheet account, and grant access to Flow Express.Once you do this, a new authorization will be added, and you will be directed to the next step of your flow. You can, at any time, go back to the ‘Authorization’ step, and rename the authorization that you have added.

Note: Once an authorization is created, it will always be available in any Smartsheet action. You simply need to select the authorization. You need not create a new one every time.
