Trouble with nesting formula, could use some advice

Hello, 

I am attempting to use nested formula's to create a status update.  

I started with, =IF(NO(ISBLANK([Date Submitted to Engineering]),"Sent to Engineering")) and it worked fine.  The problem is I need to add multiple status options, with automation like this.  So I added the second status and it will not work.  Here is the new formula with the second status, I am not sure what I have done wrong.  

Can anyone help?

=IF(NO(ISBLANK([Date Submitted to Engineering]),"Sent to Engineering")),IF(NOT(ISBLANK([Site Survey Scheduled]1), "Site Survey Scheduled")

Is there an obvious mistake here?  I need to add about 10 status options to this formula, I think it is something to do with syntax, but maybe it's a wrong formula option in the beginning.  

 

Anyway, If someone can see the issue, I would greatly appreciate the help.

Thank you,

    Hi,

    At a quick glance, I can see that you're missing a T in the first NOT.

    =IF(NOT(ISBLANK([Date Submitted to Engineering]),"Sent to Engineering")),IF(NOT(ISBLANK([Site Survey Scheduled]1), "Site Survey Scheduled")

    Did it work?

    Have a fantastic weekend!

    Best,

    Thank you for looking at this. 

    It appears I made that error in translation for the discussion.  I am still getting the #unparseable response,  =IF(NOT(ISBLANK([Date Submitted to Engineering]1)),"Sent to engineering")), IF(NOT(ISBLANK([Site Survey Scheduled]1)), "site Survey Scheduled")))

    I welcome any other suggestions.  

    Thank you, Laura

    Happy to help!

    You have closing parenthesis after the first IF and that's not needed.

    Syntax. IF(logical_expression, value_if_true, [value_if_false])

    More info: https://help.smartsheet.com/function/if

    Try something like this.

    =IF(NOT(ISBLANK([Date Submitted to Engineering]@row)); "Sent to engineering"; IF(NOT(ISBLANK([Site Survey Scheduled]@row)); "Site Survey Scheduled"))

    The same version but with the below changes for your and others convenience.

    =IF(NOT(ISBLANK([Date Submitted to Engineering]@row)), "Sent to engineering", IF(NOT(ISBLANK([Site Survey Scheduled]@row)), "Site Survey Scheduled"))

    Depending on your country you’ll need to exchange the comma to a period and the semi-colon to a comma.

    Did it work?

    Best,
