Email Alerts Triggered From Text Column?

edited 12/09/19 in Archived 2017 Posts

Is there a way to set up a sheet alert to send me an email 3 workdays after text is added to a specific column?

    I have not been able to figure out a foolproof way. The best way, but not perfect way is to have users add the current day's date to the sheet when they add something. Then create a reminder that fires 3 days after that date. However, we have had users put in a past date, and the reminder never fires. :| That is one drawback. We definitely need a feature to insert the current date/time of when a field changes, or when a field is added to, or "checked off", like in the instance of a checkmark. It would greatly help with tracking when someone accomplished something without requiring them to enter a date.
