Can we duplicate Datameshs ?

Hello,

Every week I need to load a new set of refreshed datapoints from Excel to Smartsheet

Then I have to recreate the datamesh I used in the past week to take into account this fresh load of data jsut uploaded.

I need to do this 3 times as there are 3 sheets that leverage this refreshed set of data

Can you think about a simpler way to do this weekly maintenance ?

I thought it would be easier if we could copy paste datameshes & just change the datasource

What do you think / what would you advise ?

Many thanks

Pierre-Eric

    Hi @Pierre-Eric Collette

    Thank you for clarifying. I don't believe there's a trial period with any of the add-on applications, but the Smartsheet Sales team will be able to discuss this with you.

    Other than Data Shuttle, I would suggest copying/pasting the data in to the three main sheets after you've imported the information. There currently isn't a way to Duplicate a workflow in DataMesh, or to update the sheet after a workflow has been created. You will need to re-create them every time you're looking to use a different source item. Please provide your feedback to the Product team through this form, here.

    Thank you!

    Do you have access to Data Shuttle as well? If you have Data Shuttle, you could use this to update a current sheet that's connected to your DataMesh workflow with the Excel data instead of creating new sheets with each Excel import. This means you wouldn't have to re-create your DataMesh workflows.

    Cheers,

  • Hi @Genevieve P.

    i currently don't have access to DataShuttle.

    Do you know if this is possible to have a 30days trial period ? the cost is pretty significant to add DS to our company plan.

    Other than DataShuttle can you think of a solution ?

    Thanks a lot
