Appreciate this has been raised a lot of times by a lot of people - can you provide an updated ETA on this functionality and perhaps share some of the challenges in its delay?
Thanks so much,
Thanks for checking in on this. We are planning on releasing cross-sheet formulas in February. If you have a CSM (Customer Success Manager), please check with them and see if they can enroll you in our Early Adopter Program (EAP) so that you can try the functionality out a bit sooner.
Hope this helps,
You can now reference data from other sheets in formulas!
Create a master lookup table sheet and use VLOOKUP to find data on another sheet.

I tried the new VLOOKUP feature and it's pretty cool. My question however, why do the cells you are "looking up" have to be next to each other? If I want to use VLOOKUP I'll have to reorder the lookup table.
They don't -- just the left most column does. You COULD select the whole source sheet if your reference column was on the left.
If that does not work for you, try using INDEX() and MATCH(). Much more flexible. I don't use them as often as I should because some customers have a hard time to grok them.
Here is the message I get when I tried to look up a value. The value I'm matching on is the leftmost value (ID). I want to return the value in SOC1. If I move SOC1 next to ID and select both columns, it works just fine.
Hold the shift key down when you are selecting the 'second' column. Count the number of columns (the left most is 1). Put that number in your 3rd argument of the VLOOKUP
Yea, I tried that and it worked. I was just hoping I didn't have to select all of the columns in between the leftmost column and my 'second' column.
Take a look at INDEX and MATCH mentioned earlier.
Only index and return column needed.
When managing a PMO. is it considered a best practice to establish an individual workspace for each project? If this is advisable, is there a method for setting up an automated recurring backup for all projects without having to do them individually?
Hello all! I have an automation workflow set up to record a date when a particular column changes to a specified value. Essentially I need to record a date when the "Current Stage" column changes to "Reevaluate/Schedule Final". See the workflow trigger screenshot below. I created this workflow and tested it on 11/16. It…
I use Outlook with my company. When a tagged email comes in from Smartsheets, I click on the "reply in Smartsheet" and it won't take me to any conversation box. It just opens the page, but not on the line that I need. Why is this happening? I updated this morning. Also, I get an Error message sometimes.
