Indentation automatically


I have a client who is using forms to update new entries on their sheet. The sheet is organized in sections where there are different categories and their sub-tasks. My question is, what would be a workaround to have new entries filled from the form show up under their specific category? Like an automatic indentation process? I know there is no functionality yet but has any of you encountered such scenario before? Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    Hi @Jona_g28

    I hope you're well and safe!

    This might help! (It won't indent, but separate the different submissions)

    • I developed a solution using two forms (or the same form by using conditional logic) that can be used to submit the main information and then the other information on a new row for each submission after the first.

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

    Hi Andree,

    I think this might not work because we have like 10 different sections with 5-6 subsections on each. If I am understanding your workaround correctly, this might not work
