Formula or Automation?

Hi all

Hope someone can help me please?

Is there any way of counting how many times a cell on a row changes value?

We have an "Installation Date" in our schedule for each job and we want to track how many times builders/clients change the installation date.

I realise I will need a dedicated column to do this.

Thank you in advance.

    Hi @Tracey Tume

    I hope you're well and safe!

    • Use Workflows combined with the change cell action and have it change to a higher number each time.
    • Use a Workflow to copy the row to a so-called helper sheet and count the number of rows.

    Would any of those options work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic weekend!

    Thank you for your suggestions.

    I have tried the Workflow idea and Change Cell Value but it isn't working. Not sure you can +1 as it sees it as text not an equation.
