I need to set up an update request for when a box has been checked for 2 weeks

Options

I have a two condition update I'm having issues with:


If box is unchecked x2 weeks and no date is in the date column, send an update request.


Can someone help me do this?

    Hi @Crystal Crews 

    Hope you are fine, i created a sample sheet to explain the solution.

    1- insert Auto-number/system column ( created date )

    2- create date type column ( Past Date ) with the following formula =TODAY() - 14 to identify the 2x week date from today. convert the formula to column formula

    3- create text/number type column ( Check Date ) with the following formula =Created@row - [Past Date]@row to check how many day pass since you create the record.

    4- create automation to trigger update request as the following in screen shot.
