Auto number parent and child rows

edited 06/25/17 in Archived 2017 Posts

I am trying to auto number the parent rows 1, 2, 3, etc and the child rows 1-1, 1-2, 2-1, 2-2, 2-3, 3-1 etc. Is there a way to do this as rows are added?

    Hi Joanne,

    It looks like you're wanting to create an effect similar to WBS (work breakdown structure) such that rows will automatically be numbered in an outline format based on their hierarchy. We currently don't have this functionality in Smartsheet but our Product team is in the early stages of designing this functionality. 

    To increase visibility on demand for this type of feature, please fill out the Product Enhancement Request form, which goes directly to our Product team, under Quick links on the right of the community site.

    Hi Shaine, I just filled out the form. Thanks for letting me know about it.
