Modified Date and Conditional Formatting/Alerts
I have hit a problem that Smartsheet can't seem to deal with.
My goal is to create a sheet that runs conditional formatting based on the differential between 'Modified date' and a TODAY equation.
Firstly I tried to create a TODAY based formula in the conditional formatting tool. However, this acted as a figure once calculated and not as a formula hence it would not automatically update on a daily basis.
Secondly I tried adding a column with a tick box that would change once the differential of TODAY and 'modified date' was past a certain threshold. The plan was to have this drive conditional formatting and alerts. However, once this box automatically ticked it would reset the 'modified date' in a useless circle.
So my question is: Does Smartsheet have the capability to drive conditional formatting and alerts based on a varying calculated TODAY date and a 'modified date'. E.G. After 6 months of inactivity a row will turn red and send an email to the owner of that row.
