Is there a formula for when my Paid column is checked it triggers the Check Date column to display the date?

    Hi @Lisa_Doris

    Unfortunately, it's not possible at the moment to lock the date, but it's an excellent idea!

    Please submit an Enhancement Request when you have a moment

    As a workaround, You could use the 3rd party service, Zapier or a solution I developed where you can store the date/value, which enables you to see which one was changed first.

    You'd use the copy-row automation and a VLOOKUP or combination of INDEX/MATCH to make it work.

    We'd trigger the copy-row to another sheet and get the created date and then use the VLOOKUP/INDEX/MATCH to get it back to the main sheet in another so-called helper column. As long as you have a unique id/values that we can use it will work.

    Also, this opens up more options with auto-numbering and more.

    Make sense?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!
