Workflow formula: Increase cell by value


have been searching for this answer but with no success.

I would like to register number of:

  • due date revisions/changes
  • row modification changes

I tried to use "update cell" workflow, but this would require to have multiple conditions and results to do simple task of "increase value by 1", so simple formula when "cell" changes" workflow would do "cell+1"

Any idea how to do this?

    Hi @Mitja Rudel

    I hope you're well and safe!

    One possible solution could be to add a so-called helper sheet where you copy the row each time and then use cross-sheet formulas to count the number of rows (changes).

    Make sense?

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!
