We use Smartsheet forms to collect data for events. Sometimes information changes like dates or times.
Using a unique identifier, is it possible to create another form to report changes in certain rows?
We had this need and eventually invested in Data Shuttle. This can solve the problem, but it's like $25k per year.
The alternative is some combination of Copy and Move commands to bring records into one sheet, combining them in order to merge in the updated fields, and then moving the bad row out and keeping the new combined record. I found it to be pretty unstable and since there is no Delete workflow, you end up with a garbage sheet that just collects garbage.
Hi Connie, Smartsheet form can only add rows to a sheet but not update. You may consider triggering "Update Request" by automation if you want to capture changes on certain cells.
Another way you may want to look into is Dynamic View, which is a premium add-on (i.e. yes, additional costs) and more sophisticated.
Hi @Connie Cochran
I hope you're well and safe!
Would any of those options work/help?
I hope that helps!
Be safe, and have a fantastic week!

Hello! I copied a form I had made for a similar event I am working on now. I made minor adjustments to the form to match the needs of the event. I distributed the form for people to complete, so the form is active, but the data is not populating onto my Smartsheet. Please advise. I would prefer not to have people redo the…
