  • Hi, we setup a App to do this using the API.   How many sheets and rows approx are you looking at??

  • This is not a deleting solution, but it may help you.  If you use a Report to look at the Sheet, you can setup the filters to stop displaying data greater than one day.

    A sheet filter would work the same way without the hassle of building a report.

  • We are using one sheet and aprox 20 new rows everyday. shortly we will have 100 rows daily. looking for a solution to delte rows greater than 24 hours.

    What's the app called?

     

  • Thank you , but i am looking for a solution for the smartsheet not for the report.

  • What app you guys a re using for the deletion fo rows ?

    Is there a functionality similar to the Move Rows or Copy Rows automation to delete rows? Similar to @Tal Segal's initial request, I'm looking at deleting row records that are x months old and would like to handle that in an automated fashion. Today's process uses the Move Row automation to move completed records to an archive sheet every night, but now the archive sheet is a few thousand records deep, so we'd like the option to automatically discard records once they've meet our defined retention period.

    Any thoughts?

  • Hi @Jake Gustafson

    There currently isn't a Delete Row workflow, you would need to Move the row from the sheet as you're already doing, then manually delete rows from that archive sheet to create space.

    An alternative would be to use the Smartsheet API to delete rows.

    Cheers,

    Genevieve
