    How do I hide a row, is there a specific from or sheet template that allows for hiding rows?     I do see that hiding colums is possible, looking for the same functionality but for an individual row.

    Is there a way to set up notifications within a report?  We use reports to keep project managers up to date on new projects and a notification based upon the addition of new information would be helpful.
