    Assuming your column ID is an autonumber column here. You can use a formula in your duplicate checkbox column to see if an individual row is the smallest ID for that Ticket number.

    =IF(MIN(COLLECT(ID:ID, Ticket:Ticket, Ticket@row)) = ID@row, 0, 1)

    This will check the box for ONLY duplicates.

    Separately, you can set up a Move Row automation with "When a date is reached" as trigger (and set up as a reasonable cadence for your use case), with "Duplicate Is Checked" as a condition.

    Thanks Kerry. Yes the column ID is an autonumber column.
