is it possible to send an automatic update request every 2 weeks without changing anything in the sheet to a contact in a column?
Yes, probably but I'll need some more details. Can you describe in more detail what you want to do?
I hope this helps you!

Feel free to contact me for help with Smartsheet, integrations, general workflow advice, or anything else.
i have a todo list (screenshot). The task is delegated to someone -> contact in "delegiert an". Now smartsheet should send an update request ever 2 weeks to the contacts in "delegiert an". These guys have to update the "erledigt zu", add a comment, upload a file or request with no changes.
Ok. That's what I thought.
Update request every two weeks
not exactly. With this way i must make an update request in each row and i have to set the contact manually. I want smartsheet to do this without interaction and send the update request to the contact in the "delegiert an" column. This contact may change or there will be more than one contact.
Ok. As a workaround, you could set up an Alert & Action > Update Request that sends on a date in a specific cell, and for each row, on the sheet, you link that data from the top date (first date) that you update every two weeks.
Would that work?
correct ... but i have to update the date every two weeks manually or is there an other way ... My intention is to make no manual entry.
It could probably be automated thru Zapier or a similar service. You could also have an Update Request for the first date go to you, and you could update it that way. Almost what you want
If you don't require an update but just FYI to someone, you can can use (while inside the sheet: File-send as attachment:
Happy to help!
Have a fantastic week!

I have many many sheets where column names are the same but data types are different (ex: some "Assigned to" columns are text/numbers and some are contact list, some "Project Name" columns are text/numbers, and some are dropdown list.) The choices in value type are driven by the many teams specific needs. This creates…
Is it possible to format a singular cell in a sheet to total the above numbers add in each cell of the column.
