How to Add a Formula Into a Dropdown List?


I need to reference the project end date column to group projects into different delivery "buckets". For example, if the end date is in the month of January it would go into the "Day 1" bucket, if it's in February the bucket would be "30 days post go-live", March "60 days post go-live" etc. I'd like to use a formula because the end dates are sometimes changed and the sheet has 1000+ rows. Is it possible to do this using the IF function?

    Hi @Aspen26

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Not sure I follow. Can you elaborate?

    Can you share some screenshots? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help.

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic week!
