I am trying to copy rows to another sheet but the predecessor relationships don't carry into the new smartsheet when I do. How can I copy rows and retain the predecessors?
Hi @Christa Johnson
Hope you are fine, unfortunately, when you copy or move rows between sheets the dependency is not copied, you can play around by exporting the original sheet to Ms Project as XML and import it to the new sheet, or you can copy the values in the Predecessors column and paste it in the new sheet.

Ridiculous. Would be much easier and more user-friendly to include the predecessors and allow users to delete inapplicable ones. The current workflow is absurdly unnecessary. Simple fix. Do it. Geez.

I was really disappointed to find out that predecessors are lost when copying from one sheet to another. It's totally ruining my plans for a project I'm working on. I have a portfolio sheet that needs to have additional projects added to it over time.

The more I use Smartsheet, the more I start looking for alternatives for future projects. This is just one of the examples of things that are annoying and not taken care of over the course of time.
Hello all! I have an automation workflow set up to record a date when a particular column changes to a specified value. Essentially I need to record a date when the "Current Stage" column changes to "Reevaluate/Schedule Final". See the workflow trigger screenshot below. I created this workflow and tested it on 11/16.

I use Outlook with my company. When a tagged email comes in from Smartsheets, I click on the "reply in Smartsheet" and it won't take me to any conversation box. It just opens the page, but not on the line that I need. Why is this happening? I updated this morning. Also, I get an Error message sometimes.
Hi - We number tasks in our Smartsheet grid using the format XXX.X. When we sort in descending order, the numbers are not in order. For example 200.0 appears below 001.0. Since it is in descending order 200.0 should appear before 001.0. We also want to start using four digits before the decimal point and want to know if…
