Learn how to embed Smartsheet inside a Bit document as an iframe in 5 easy steps!

Technology has significantly shaped how we all work. There’s no doubt that technology has enabled new processes, strategies, and procedures that have made us more productive and efficient.

Work overload decreases productivity by 68% in employees who feel they don’t have enough hours in the day to complete their tasks.

However, the cloud and apps based workflow of today has helped increase productivity by getting rid of commute times, time spent searching for information, as well as time spent on other administrative tasks that technology can do very quickly.

Even though technology has enabled us to perform better at our work and does stuff quickly, the presence of so many apps and tools always leaves us feeling overwhelmed with notifications and alerts. This is where tools like Smartsheet comes in handy!

Smartsheet and Bit docs: The perfect workflow!

If you love using Smartsheet to create sheets and manage workflows, you are going to love this new Bit integration! But if you are new here, let me just give you an introduction about Bit!

Bit.ai is a new-age document collaboration and communication tool that helps teams to collaborate, share, track and manage all company knowledge in one place.

Bit allows teams to create workplace documents like- project proposals, sales decks, training documents, how-to guides, company policies, process documentation, media kits, fact sheets, competitive research, case studies, e-books, etc. and provides a safe and robust place to store these documents.

If you want to send these documents to external partners, clients, customers or prospects, you can even track them to get intelligent engagement insights.

The secret sauce to Bit is its ability to create documents like no other document editor out there. Bit helps you create documents of the future that are dynamic and much more than plain-boring text.

Apart from allowing multiple users to collaborate on documents, Bit also allows users to share any sort of rich media like YouTube videos, SoundCloud Playlists, embed Google Sheets, Docs, and Slides, One Drive Excel Spreadsheets, Smartsheets, GIFs, Tweets, Cloud files, Pinterest boards, etc.

Basically, anything on the internet with a link can be shared and Bit will automatically turn it into visual content.

Bit’s documents are smart enough to read any weblink and automatically transform that link into visual content. Just enter any weblink on a blank line and hit enter. Bam! The content will show up beautifully.
