Dashboard reading data from same sell

10/31/19 Edited 12/09/19

I want to be able to display the data from the same cell in a sheet within the dashboard

The sheet is updated using forms which put new data on the top row, but the value of the cell I had selected in the top row (now the second row) remains in the dashboard, not the new value in the top row cell

How do I set the dashboard so it only reflects the values in fixed cell

    Hi John,

    You'd have to use a formula in a specific cell or maybe in the Sheet Summary section for the value to be updated automatically.

    Would that work?

    I hope that helps!

    Have a fantastic day!

    Best,

    Thank you, could you please give me an indication of what this formula might look like

    Thanks

    Sorry for the late answer. I missed your post.

    The following will always show the latest value by looking at the Created date.

    .

    Try something like this.

    =INDEX(Value:Value; MATCH(MAX(Created:Created); Created:Created; 0))

    .

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

    =INDEX(Value:Value, MATCH(MAX(Created:Created), Created:Created, 0))

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

    .

    Did it work?

    Have a fantastic weekend!
