I am trying to add a "data validation" to check that a serial # entered has exactly 10 characters (letters or numbers). I saw someone reference using a LEN count, but I do not see a way to use this function in a workflow.
Is this possible?
I hope you're well and safe!
Yes, but you'd need to add a so-called helper column and then reference it in the Workflow.
Would that work/help?
I hope that helps!
Be safe and have a fantastic week!

That was the exact solution that came to me last night. Thank you for confirming!
Would be nice if Smartsheet would offer some sort of data validation/formula check either in workflows or with the Text/Number column properties for entering unique data.
Happy to help!
Yes, I agree.

Blargh. I set up a "helper column" to have a formula and then tried to set up a workflow to change the cell contents if a row was changed/added. Of course it won't let me enter a formula by doing this since it converts it to text.
