    Hello PUGs!

    I hope everyone is doing ok.

    I have 2 questions for you guys:

    1) When I create a report in Desktop and then Publish to the Service and create Embed Code (for web sharing), do I need to send users NEW code every time I need to add new pages or charts to the Desktop report? Of course, after changes I'd have to Publish it again and ... create new code.
    Is there a way around this, co if I send users one link to the report, it's stay the same, the link that is?

    2) Smartsheets - do you guys know if I'd need a Gateway for Data Updates? Or like Sharepoint files, I could just connect to the Cloud and no Gateway needed?

    Did you get your answer? For 1) The embed code is a permalink. Every time you have a scheduled refresh it updates. 2) Smartsheet is a cloud tool - no need for the Gateway for this type of connection. Check out Microsoft Flow (Power Automate)! There are some really cool additional features that you can do with Smartsheet and Microsoft.
