Moving complete rows to bottom of CURRENT sheet via workflow

Options

I am wondering if it is possible to set up an automated workflow that moves a completed row to the bottom of that current sheet? The scenario is a simple To DO list whereas things are completed, they would be moved to the bottom of the sheet and crossed out. I know you can build a filtered view to hide them but thought I would investigate this approach a bit more as well.


Thank you kindly.

    Hi @jbonetti

    I hope you're well and safe!

    You can move it to the next free row, but not completely to the bottom.

    Try something like this.

    • Create a so-called helper sheet
    • Set up a Workflow with a Move Row Action to the helper sheet
    • Set up a similar Workflow on the helper sheet and Move it back to the main sheet.

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

    Best,

    Thanks for the response. I am trying to contain this in a "template" for distribution and use within our team. Can you have multiple sheets tied to a template (the original sheet plus the helper sheet)? Or can the workflows differentiate between a single "static" helper sheet and multiple "originating" sheets? Does that make sense?
