Hi, I'm looking to link rows and/or cells from one sheet to another based on certain criteria (e.g. if cell in col X = a certain value, link that row to another sheet).
Is this possible?
In my experience, cell linking is a completely manual process and cannot be intermingled with formulas or conditional statements. For a complete primer on cell linking, check out this article on cell linking.
It sounds like what you need is X-Sheet References to do this, not cell linking.That functionality was not available when the OP was originally written.
@rflowers I am wanting to do exactly what your question is, i.e., if meeting minute is marked 'follow/up' then link to next meeting agenda.
Did you work through a solution to this question?
@J. Craig Williams 'x-sheet references' Not sure I understand that. Can you expand on that thought?
I do something similar with my meeting notes: the way I have this set up is that there's a source sheet containing all meeting tasks/minutes. Then I use a Row Report to Group together line items by date (instead of hyperlinking).
There's a checkbox column to indicate if the specific row requires a follow-up. If that checkbox is checked, it stays in the Report for next week (using Filters in the Report to control this). However if that's un-checked and the "Complete" box is checked, the Report filters it out so there's a clean view for the following week's meeting.
@Genevieve P. thank you so much for your feedback.
I have actually been playing with row report based on column from the meeting minutes. I have included the link to row report at the top of the meeting agenda, i.e., the first meeting agenda item for each meeting is to view row report and speak to items that are lingering.
Sounded like a good idea - really glad to have validation from someone who uses this.
"x-sheet references" == cross sheet references.
They provide greater flexibility when trying to link more data than a few cells between sheets. The tutorial used to be pretty decent to get started if this is new concept.
I'm wondering if there is a way to lock rows 1-12 out of the sorting and filtering of a sheet. I might have take out that part of the from otherwise I dont like how the built in dashboard moves when a sort or filter is applied?
Hello, I apologize if this has already been answered, I did search before asking. I recently downloaded a template and it had the google slides displayed in presentation mode. I cannot figure out how to do this as when I embed, it's just the entire google page where you can edit and see the menu bar. How do I embed the…
