Smartsheet Calendar

Options

Hello,

I am wondering if the Smarsheet calendar has the capability to move an entire employees daily work to the next day. For instance, if an employee has a rain day and needs their entire schedule moved by one day can you set it up to do it manually by just moving the first day?

Thank you,

    Hi @Sharon Davidson

    If you set up Project Settings in your sheet and enable dependencies, this would configure your sheet to have dates dependent on each other (where a date would move if a previous date changed).

    However Project Settings will link a Start and End date to a Duration of a task as well, and this setting is mainly used in conjunction with a Gantt chart, not the Calendar View. See this article for more information on Gantt charts: Gantt Chart with Dependencies. You may also want to read this article as well: Enable Dependencies and Use Predecessors.

    If you are simply using one column for your dates and the Calendar view, then there isn't a way to automatically shift all your following dates based on this one adjustment. You could use the drag-fill function in Grid view to quickly input a series of dates in a specific pattern. See: Create a Series of Numbers or Dates with Drag-Fill.

    Let me know if I've misunderstood your question or if I can clarify anything further!

    Cheers,
