I have my Date Completed column set to auto populate TODAYS date when the complete box is Checked. However, I need to LOCK this date once it auto populates. Currently it is changing each day to the new date.

    Hi Tammy,

    We would use the copy row workflow to lock to store the date in the other sheet, and then we’d use cross-sheet formulas and a combination of INDEX/MATCH to collect the date back to the main sheet.

    Make sense?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

    Best,
