I want to copy the preferred delivery date to metric sheet as per today's date

Is there a way I can show this dates in metric sheet.

I tried Index match formula but its not working in this case as there will more orders for the same product name.

Please help me to solve this

    Hi @Domnic Victor - One easy but a time consuming way out is cell linking the dates to the Metric sheet. That way, when the dates change/update in your source sheet, they also get updated in your Metrics sheet which is ultimately helpful if you are trying to chart the data in a dashboard.

    Hope this helps,

    Hi @Domnic Victor

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Could you maybe copy the row on the day's date?

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic week!

    In the order request we will be getting orders daily, for example for Begal Bread there will be more orders in the same day, I want to have consolidated orders for the products and date is very important.

    I tried preparing reports but if we group by products its showing multiple line items for the same product and give the summary.

    What I wanted is product name, total qty requested and preferred delivery date
