How to calculate No.of days without getting the value changed everytime a new row is added.

Error with the No.of days due column. If there is an automation set to send an email whenever the number hits 14, the value in this column keeps getting changed whenever a new row is added. Based on the formula, it changes to 14 first and then realizes it isn't 14 and changes back to 13. Due to this, repeated emails are sent in a day. What to do?

    Hi @Nikhil

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Not sure I follow.

    Can you describe your process in more detail and maybe share the sheet(s)/copies of the sheet(s) or some screenshots? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help. (share too, [email protected])

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic day!

    Best,
