hello Smartsheet community!

l am building a Dynamic View with some Field Logic added so whenever the fields meet certain conditions, the field is visible in the details panel. I know that field logic only works with Dropdown or Symbol columns, however the data fed in to the sheet is entered manually (free text). Is there a work around (helper column, formula, etc. ) that will pull free text fields into the logic field selection??

    Hi @Silvia Rangel

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Yes, I think it should work if you create a helper column (dropdown) and either use a formula to change the value or a Workflow referencing the free text cell.

    Make sense?

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!
