Is it possible to manage the frequency of updates from linked cells

Options

Is it possible to link cells from one smart sheet to another but only have them update once a week rather than in real time? If so, how would I go about doing that?

    Hi @Kirsty Matthews

    Interesting use-case.

    Can you describe your process in more detail and maybe share the sheet(s)/copies of the sheet(s) or some screenshots? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help. (share too, andree@workbold.com)

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

  • Hi Andree

    I have a smart sheet that is updated on a regular basis by my colleagues, this is linked through to a smart sheet owned and managed in a seperate part of the business that collats the input from many teams. The link automatically updates the data from my smartsheet to the collated spreadsheet in real time, however I would like it to only update the collated sheet on a weekly basis, say weekly Friday.


    ie

    1. colleagues can update original smartsheet at any time
    2. link only updates collated spreadsheet weekly

    Sorry, I can't share.send my smartsheet, although I appreciate this would help!

    Thanks

    Kirsty

    Excuse the late response.

    Did you get it working? If not, I might have an idea to make it work.
