Formula or Work Flow to auto populate date in new row every Monday


I have a column for "Current Week" status updates. I'm trying to figure out a workflow or formula that will auto populate Monday's date in a new row in that column - but not until that date is today. ie: every Monday the date auto populates in the subsequent cell of that column (that date addition triggers other cells to calculate different things in the spreadsheet and I want to retain each weeks info). I tried doing a reoccurring workflow that recorded the date when that date was reached but that auto populated todays date in the whole column.

Any suggestions? Thank you!

    Hi @rachelk

    I hope you're well and safe!

    You should be able to add a condition so the Record a date workflow only triggers for the specific cell.

    Can you share some screenshots? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing)

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic week!
