Hello community :)

Is it not possible for % Complete to default/autofill to 0% when inserting a new row?

When I insert a new row (between 2 other rows) and enter text in the Primary Column, everything from the previous row gets auto-filled on the newly inserted row as expected  (ex: At Risk flag, Project, other columns where I'm using a Fixed reference cells with $ sign)... EXCEPT % Complete! It leaves it as blank and therefore another Column for Project Status (which is based on % Complete) shows #NOMATCH.

How can I get % Complete to default to 0% when inserting a new row...?

Thank you!



  • Hello Emma,

    There currently isn't a way to autofill % complete or have it default to 0%, these values must manually be changed.

    When you have a moment, please submit an enhancement request using the form under Quick links on the right of the community site to let our Product team know that you'd like to have this feature added to Smartsheet.

  • Hello, is this still the case, or has this been addressed?
