Hi Smartsheet Community, 

My team currently utilizes a report with multiple sheets to track the due dates of projects. We currently use the Calendar app to display this info - but I'm looking to build an additional dashboard for my team that will utilize this report to display the upcoming due dates in a two-week window. Ideally, I would like to utilize an automated workflow to update this dashboard daily. Any tips on how to put something like this together? 

Thanks in advance for any advice you may have.

    Hi,

    Here are a few options.

    • Sheet Summary to collect the dates on the individual sheets and Sheet Summary Report to show the dates together in a dashboard.
    • Sheet summary to collect all the dates on the individual sheets and then use metric widgets on a dashboard
    • Link the dates to metric widgets to show them on a dashboard.

    Would any of those options work?

    Can you describe your process in more detail and maybe share the sheet(s) or some screenshots? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help. (share too, [email protected])

    Hope that helps!

    Have a fantastic weekend!

    Best,
