Adding data to a cell, rather than overwriting

Yaama all - has anyone found a way to add data to a cell, rather than update.  I know you can go in and edit, but instructing our executive team to do this is not going to work.  I tried a hidden column that added the 'new update' to the 'existing update' but this only works for the one update.  

Any assistance would be much appreciated!

    Hi Virginia,

    Not sure I follow!

    Do you want them to add new information and keep the historical data? Cell history will show all the old data, but I'm guessing that you want to show or calculate the historical data. Correct?

    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, andree@getdone.se)

    I hope that helps!

    Have a fantastic week!

    Best,
