How do I clear content of a cell? Sheet from: Template Project Tracking and Rollup

Hi, I am new at Smartsheet.

I am using the sheet in the template: Project Tracking and Rollup. When I add a column and with a checkbox or a date for an example, the checkbox is in every cell in that column, but some of my rows are main rows and therefore I want the cell to be empty.

How do I remove the checkbox from a single cell in the column with checkbox'?

I can see that it is possible because the sheet comes with a risk column with flags and the flags are not in the cells on the coloured rows.

Can you give a row a function/property that makes the cells in the row empty no matter what columns you add?

    Hi @MBH

    I hope you're well and safe!

    You can't remove an individual checkbox, but you can "hide" it by adding punctuation and coloring it like the cell color.

    Make sense?

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic week!
