Add data to existing sheet from mobile

I am the only user of a budget tracking sheet. I'm looking for an easy way to add data (# of hours worked) to specific rows in the existing sheet. For example, I have a row for Task #1 which I'll work on various days in a month. Each day I'd like to use my phone to enter "X hrs worked for Task #1 (as well as X hrs worked for Task #2, etc)" and have that add and sum up in the row.

I've looked into forms and update requests but neither is what I really want to do. Maybe a 3rd party connection?

    Sean,

    I have created this sheet to track your hours - It can be used either by Using a Form to Enter the Date, Task Name, Hours - or used in Card View where you can filter the information by Year, Month, Day of the Month, or Week of the Month - In Card View you just Select an Uncategorized Row - Select Edit - Enter the Date, Task Name, Hours and it will move it to the Relevant Card you are Viewing the Report in.

    Please let me know if this helps,

    Rob

    Hi Sean,

    How many tasks can there be? I’d recommend using a form or multiple forms and shortcuts for them in the app or on your smartphones home screen or similar.

    We could have everything in one sheet or use two or multiple sheets, and then we’d sum everything up in one place so you can see the totals.

    Make sense?

    Would that work?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

    Best,
