How to store data in a cell on same spreadsheet to trend changes over time?

 Looking for a way I can collect readings on the same asset once a week on the same spreadsheet. Is there a way that once I save the sheet, it will save the data I inputted so I can trend it historically? Meaning I fill out the same sheet once a week, but somehow it stores the values I put in each cell so I can track if those values have changed over time?

    Hi Brittnee,

    Unfortunately, it's not possible at the moment to store/access the data in a cell and use it for trend changes, but it's an excellent idea!

    As a possible workaround, you could either use the copy row automation or a 3rd party integration/service like Zapier to copy the values to another sheet or store them in another column in the same sheet.

    Would any of those options work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

    Best,
