update row approval or identification

We have created a workers compensation Smartsheet that contains information like phone number, address, DOB etc. I would like to use the update row feature to allow employees to confirm and/or update those values. The challenge I have run into is 1. I am not sure I would like to allow them to simply overwrite the existing value so I am wondering if there is a way I could put an approval step in place. 2. If not, is there a way to identify values that have been changed other than using the highlight changes feature?

Thank you,

    Hi @Khari Shiver

    I hope you're well and safe!

    You could:

    • have a report showing changes
    • add a so-called helper sheet where you copy the rows when anything changes
    • have an alert showing the changes

    Would any of those options work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic week!
