Is there a way to have the Auto-Number (Modified-Date) column update by adding a comment in a row? I'm aware that the date can automatically change if another portion of the row is updated, but that's not what I'm looking for.

    This is not possible as it stands,


    A workround is that you can be sent an Alert when it comments have changed/added.

    Yu could then have a Check box column that you use as a toggle button and just change it everytime a comment is added or changed.


    Not ideal.

  • Hi Smartsheet Team - have there ever been requests/plans to change this? We run reports based on 'recent activity' and the comments are critical. Thank you!
