Drop down list at the cell level

Is it possible to create a drop down that is held within a cell level or are all drop downs required at the column level? We want different potentials for each cell in a column as apposed to one large data set.

    Hello Trevor, 

    The dropdown list is only located at the column level at the moment. But you can submit an enhancement request for this functionality here so it can be considered by our development team for future implementations. We appreciate your feedback! 

    Kind Regards

    Hi Trevor,

    Here is a workaround that gives you the possibility to use lists of information and choose from that list inside a sheet (doesn't work with mobile, only desktop)

    I'm utilizing cell-linking for this workaround. The main sheet is linked to the dropdown/list sheet.

    Please see the attached link/screenshot for more information.

    Example of dropdown/list

    I hope this can be helpful for you!
