How to autofill the status


I need to setup a formula to have the status auto updated/filled whenever the date is entered on "EUDC Date in" column.

at the moment "Status" is a drop down menu and we are manually selecting the status.

    Hi @Kashmala Zaman

    Hope you are fine, please try the following formula in Status column and convert it to column format formula.

    =IF(ISBLANK([EUDC date in]@row), "", "arrived at EUDC")

    the following screenshot shows the result.

    You're more than welcome!

    Try something like this. (change the order if needed)

    =IF([Customer received]@row <> ""; "Delivered to customer"; IF([Shipped from plant]@row <> ""; "In Transit"; IF([EUDC date in]@row <> ""; "Arrived at EUDC"; "")))

    Depending on your country/region, you'll need to exchange the comma to a period and the semi-colon to a comma.

    Did that work?
