Update a row with a form

Hello everyone,

Do you know if in Smartsheet when I fill a form, it is possible to update an existing row (with an ID key for example), instead of creating a new row ?

Do you know also if there is a way to check if a row has been already created (with an ID key) to prevent for example a form user from creating a row with an ID that already exists ?

Thank you for your help,

Have a nice day,

    Hi @RossL

    Thank you very much for your answer, it seems to be a very good solution that you created right here.

    So if I understood well :

    • You have two forms, one form original submission, and one for making updates ?
    • When the user needs to make an update, he has to put the automated ID reference that was populated in the first form is that correct ?

    I should try this solution for my use case anyway,

    Thank you again !

    There is currently no way to update an existing row with a Form in Smartsheet.

    Have a great day,


  • Hi, is there already a smarter solution for this problem existing? I cannot really follow on how to use a second smartsheet in order to use a normal form for updates.. If i have to create 3 columns per original column I will end up with way too many..
