  • This would be SUPER helpful! Having to add data in a dropdown list that could be automatically retrieved by data in another sheet seems so antiquated.  The contacts is a great example of housing data in one area and being able to select that data with drop down menu in any sheet.  I know there is a lot more involved but the technology is already there and in place.

  • Up-voting this feature as well.

    Looking at pursuing some complex integration for single source data across multiple departments and features like these would immensely help SS adoption.

     

  • Ditto. This is a major request for me.  Please implement ASAP.

  • I would also find this very useful.  Looks like it's been on the radar at least for a while now.

  • Just adding my vote to this thread.

    My application is fairly simple and could be handled with sub-tasks, but it would be much easier if a relational database like feature was available.

    For my case, I have a release for shipment from a customer. It may take 2 or 3 shipments to complete and I need to associate each shipment to that original release to know when it is complete and can be closed out.

  • So, Smartsheet just added VLookup. FYI, the engine SS needs for Data Validation functionality was created for that enhancement... You guys already have it built!

    With the newest release being primarily cross sheet functionality are we any closer to populating drop down columns with data in a column from another sheet?

  • Smartsheet Team,

    Please tell me you are close on this one. It would be a game changer!

  • Smartsheet Team,

     

    I want to add my vote to this as well. 

  • This would be a great feature, please add ASAP!

    Please add this functionality. We use SS for a lot of different applications, and having the ability to centrally locate information for drop downs and grab from there would be a significant improvement and, as others have mentioned, would help us with data control. +1

  • Oh, how I need this! Please make this a core function.
