Automated formulas

Options

Hi,

Is there a way that a formula I entered in row 1 for example be automatically copied to the following rows?

Thank you,

Maria

    Hi Maria,


    If you're expecting the cell in all rows to just be populated by your formula and no manual update is needed to it, you can right click on the cell with the formula and click on "Convert to Column Formula".

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    Thank you for the suggestion but I think there is still something that I am missing.

    I have the following formula;

    =IF([BL Completed]@row = "Green", [CC Completed Date]@row + 28)

    If the BL is completed and marked green we would add 28 days from the CC Date to give us the date we would follow up on this particular thing.


    I want all the rows to automatically have this formula without me having to manually add it every time. Is there a way to do this?


    Thanks in advance,

    Maria

    Hey @Maria Ponce

    If I'm understanding you correctly, you have a formula in another Date column like this:

    If so, you can right-click on any cell in that column with a formula to apply it to the entire column:
