last, first to [email protected]
Is there a way to take a column:
I have data that is emailed to me as a cut and paste of part of a table. I send an email using the names included in this data. I have no control over the original spreadsheet, (so cannot have the sender manipulate the data in excel before sending)
Old (quasi manual) Process:
Copy paste table from outlook message into Excel - I have a formula that flips the names into a new column (First Last), I then manually copy and paste the "First Last" into Outlook which uses the company directory to look up the people. I resolve any missing/wrong names and send a standard email to the people on the spreadsheet.
Copy paste table from outlook message into Smartsheet - use ? to take Last, First and turn it into [email protected]. In a totally perfect world I would set up a workflow that would send a (standard, unchanging) email message to people once they are entered into the spreadsheet.
Perfect World Process:
Copy paste data with last,first -> use a "completed" type trigger for a workflow that would take last,first and generate [email protected] and would send my standard email message (Message does not change, only recipient names change).
