Associate a task with a row on another sheet?

Options

I have two sheets; Events and Tasks. I'd like to be able to associate a Task row with an Events row so that I can group tasks by the event. Is that possible in SS? (I'm used to Airtable where this is easy, but maybe it's done some other way here).

    Hi @aaroncole

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Do you have anything unique that we could use to "connect" the task and events together?

    If yes, it sounds like we could use cross-sheet formulas combined with either a VLOOKUP or INDEX/MATCH structure to connect the sheets, and when you update the source sheet, it will reflect on the destination sheet.

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

    Best,
