Display content from a cell in a different sheet if it meets certain conditions

Options

I have inherited a sheet that lists all safety issues for my company. I need to track these issues and report their status to leadership.

I am using the following formulas to:

display Total # Cases Open

=COUNTIFS(Location:Location, "Jobsite", [Date Closed]:[Date Closed], "")

display Total # Cases Closed in last 7 days

=COUNTIFS(Location:Location, "Jobsite", [Date Closed]:[Date Closed], >=TODAY(-7))

display Total # Cases Opened in last 7 days

=COUNTIFS(Location:Location, "Jobsite", [Date Closed]:[Date Closed], >=TODAY(-7))

  1. I need to display this info on another sheet, so these formulas need to be converted to be used on another sheet.
  2. I want to then display the "Case Name" "Incident Type" "Description" on the other sheet for cases that have been opened in the last 7 days.

Any help would be great! I am new to smartsheets and hit a wall trying to teach myself right now

    Hi @steves

    I hope you're well and safe!

    You could use cross-sheet formulas combined with either a VLOOKUP or INDEX/MATCH structure to connect the sheets, and when you update the source sheet, it will reflect on the destination sheet.

    Another option would be to use the Cell-linking feature to collect the data in another sheet.

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic week!

    Best,
