Auto-assign rows to a parent asset depending on a common factor

Is there a way to auto assign a row to a parent asset depending on some common factor? Each row in my sheet will have a date assign, and I want this to be auto-assign to a parent row. For example, if a row has a march date -> auto-assign it to the march parent row.

Thank you very much in advance!

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Not sure I follow.

    Can you describe your process in more detail and maybe share the sheet(s)/copies of the sheet(s) or some screenshots? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help. (share too, [email protected])

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!

  • So we have a parent row for each month. Each order will have a date assigned which will then be dragged underneath that parent row. I was looking for a way for when, an order gets a date assigned to it, for it to be automatically be put underneath the corresponding parent row for that month?

    Many thanks!
