    Hi @Rory K Power

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Unfortunately, it's not possible now to reference the cell history, but it's an excellent idea!

    Please submit an Enhancement Request when you have a moment.

    Here's a possible workaround or workarounds

    • Try something like this.
      • Workflow with the record a date feature and helper columns. When the cell gets updated or a specific value is added you'd record the date in one column, and then when it changes you record it again in the same column or another, and then you'd have the alert trigger from them if the date is older than 14 days.

    Make sense?

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

    Best,
