ChatGTP can write your Smartsheet formulas for you! Has anyone else been using this yet? How accurate has it been? Have the formulas worked?

    Hey @LizTo

    Very cool to see ChatGPT answering Smartsheet questions!

    In regards to accuracy, there are bits in pieces in your example that are correct (some of the context), however the formula itself would not work in Smartsheet.

    For Smartsheet, you would use cross sheet references, so an example should look like this:

    =JOIN(COLLECT({Email Column reference}, {Region Column reference}, [Region Column]@row, {Status Column reference}, [Status Column]@row), ",")

    So far, what I have seen in ChatGPT for Smartsheet formulas is that it tends to suggest more Google Sheet or Excel functions that Smartsheet does not have (or uses different function names). This is possibly because the current model for ChatGPT was cut from the internet a few years ago, I think, so it's potentially a little out of date.

    This public Community with written out solutions has grown a good amount since then, so I suspect that ChatGPT will do better in the future!
