trying to track "repeat offenders" across all my sheets and cant think of a way to pull it together.


I have multiple sheets that i log the progress of manufacturing a vehicle by a task list where techs check a box if they completed said task and then 2 levels of quality control to verify if said task was done to quality. What i want to do is now track the "repeat offenders" (same task being flagged as no good by qc more than 3+ times ) So Level 1 qc is now tracking the techs "repeat offenders" and level 2 qc is now trakcing level 1 qc "repeat offenders". I am Currently at a point where i need opinions on how i can get smartsheets to automate the process so there is less human interaction. Right now I have QC leaving a note saying "repeat" and right clicking the line item and "Copy to another sheet" where it then populates to my sheet "Repat Offenders list". Now from here i would like this to be automated. Each sheet has 7 "bays"(Paint,Upholstery, sub assembly...etc) I would like to set up sections for the line item to just populate in its designated area. Any suggestions on how I can make this work?

Thanks, Anthony

    Hi @ECD Auto Design

    I hope you're well and safe!

    You could add a so-called helper column and combine it with Workflows and the change cell action.

    Something like this.

    Flagged = Change cell in the helper column to 1

    Flagged again = and if helper column is 1, change to 2

    And so on...

    Make sense?

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!
