    Hi @Char T

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Here's a possible workaround or workarounds

    • Add a so-called helper column that references the Sheet Summary Field and convert it to a column formula so it's included on all rows.

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic week!

    Mahalo! That worked as far as being able to create a notification alert and use the column fields with the Message Only option, but now the challenge is that I only need that to appear for the 1st instance per day - i.e. I have staff submitting their orders for tomorrow and the helper columns are summarizing that, but when I create the workflow, how do I make it so that it will only generate one alert?
