I have set date format on my Smartsheet to display as 30-Aug-2024.
However when I use column in metric widget on dashboard it displays as 2024/08/30 (my default date setting).
I would like the dashboard dates to also display as 30-Aug-2024.
How do I do this?
You would need to set up a text/number column with a formula that outputs a text string that replicates the format you are looking for.
=DAY(Finish@row) + "-" + nested_IF_to_output_month_text + "-" + YEAR(Finish@row)
The nested IF for the month text would look something along the lines of:
IF(MONTH(Finish@row) = 1, "Jan", IF(MONTH(Finish@row) = 2, "Feb", IF(MONTH(Finish@row) = 3, "Mar", ...........................................
Thanks ... this is rather long-winded when Smartsheet should rather provide a display format on dashboard widgets.
I opted to select columns I need into a summary report, and then use report widget on dashboard. The format carries through from smartsheet to report to dashboard
Actually... I just tested it, and it did in fact pull the format for the date that I had stored in the sheet. You may need to reach out to Support.
I have many many sheets where column names are the same but data types are different (ex: some "Assigned to" columns are text/numbers and some are contact list, some "Project Name" columns are text/numbers, and some are dropdown list.) The choices in value type are driven by the many teams specific needs. This creates…
Is it possible to format a singular cell in a sheet to total the above numbers add in each cell of the column.
When managing a PMO. is it considered a best practice to establish an individual workspace for each project? If this is advisable, is there a method for setting up an automated recurring backup for all projects without having to do them individually?
