Set Highlight Changes "as of" date/time

The highlight changes feature is fantastic...however, it would be very nice if you could set an "as of" date/time.  For example I created a SmartSheet today and sent it to my team for feedback...I can't use the highlight changes now because everything I did initially shows up as a change.  If I could set a date/time as of my last edit, then antyhing contributed since I did my initial work would be highlighted.  As I'm only using this for a couple of days at most...the highlight changes won't be of a lot of value.  I can, of course do conditional formatting to achieve this, however I would like to see an enhancement to support this.

    There is the ability to highlight changes since a "Custom Date" that you enter.  But it sounds like you need both date and a specific time as entering a custom date defaults to midnight.


    You could also try highlighting changes since "I last viewed this sheet".  May not be ideal, but might help.

    Hello Chuck, 


    As Terri mentioned you can set the Highlight Changes setting to highlight anything from a custom date, but there isn't a way to enter a specific time. I'll be sure to add your vote to enter a specific time in the Highlight Changes settings to our enhancement request list. 


    As Terri mentioned, an alternitive that may work would be to select since I Last Viewed this Sheet.
