put current date when checkboxes are checked


I want to configure a formula to set the current date when 2 checkboxes are checked.

I have configured 1 date column and 2 checkboxes columns.

I don't want to use the auto-modify date column for this purpose.

Please help.

    Hi Hans,

    Date/time enhancements are coming that probably would help in your use case, but I don't know when or the specifics.

    In the meanwhile, the third-party service, Zapier, is an excellent option for this scenario. Is that an option for you?

    Do you need the ability to change the row after the checkboxes are checked?

    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])

    I hope that helps!

    Have a fantastic day!
