Auto populate from one sheet into blank rows on another

08/30/18 Edited 12/09/19

Hi All!

I searched for this, but couldn't find an answer.  Maybe it doesn't exist!

I'm trying to set up a new dashboard for sales reps.  In one sheet I will have them fill out all of their activities.  I was TRYING to get them to fill out all information on one sheet to keep things simple for them.  Is there a way for me to set it up so that when they fill out customer contact information, that  info automatically populates into a new spreadsheet that we have just for contacts? 

Maybe this is too much for a spreadsheet.

    Hi Katie,

    Yes, it is, and there are a few different ways to accomplish it. Depending on your set-up and needs.

    1. Use Cell linking to link the information from one sheet to another.

    2. Use Cross-sheet Formulas

    3. Use a service like Zapier or similar to copy the information from one sheet to another.

    Please see the attached link/screenshot for more information.

    I hope this helps you!

    I would lean more towards #3 of Andree's suggestions as x-sheet references and cell linking won't CREATE another row whenever a new row is added to the master sheet.


    I personally haven't used Zapier, so I can't speak to it's ease of use/flexibility/capabilities, but judging by what I have seen in other posts about it, it may be the best solution for you.
