So I have this column set as a date but not to restrict to dates and to allow text. This cell is not allowing me to input "YES" but instead changes it to a date. If I type anything else besides "YES", it allows it. What am I missing here?
Because it's a date column, it will always return a date if you type in Yes. You can see all the Date shortcuts here: https://help.smartsheet.com/articles/522200-keyboard-shortcuts [scroll down to Work with Dates].
I would suggest you change the column to a Text column and then you can still add the date into the cell but also use yes/no. If you are auto-populating a date via automation and have to have the column be a Date column, I would suggest using something that isn't listed on the Work with Dates list above [maybe confirmed instead of yes?].
Thank you so much for the info
