Outline level field
I'm an (expert) Excel user, using Smartsheet now in our organisation for basic tracking functionalities.
It's a daily 'struggle' to understand the limitations of Smartsheet and try to keep the sheet basic and simple, but I'm quite enthousiastic about Smartsheet.
On the other hand, I really miss some (in my point of view) basic functionalities. Besides the lack of any excel-lookup-like functions (cfr vlookup(), match(), offset(), ...) , I really miss an "outline level" field/function.
The outline idea is really great and works like a charm, but if you use multiple outline levels, the overview is really gone. It would be absolutely nice if we could change the color of a row (by using the conditional format), depending on the level of indent/outline. But as far I understand, there is no way to get the level of indention.
(I'm also playing with the live connector and without this field, I can't to anything with the connector).
Really strange that there is no function for this.
