Metric Widget is referencing sheet that has met the 500,000 cell limit - What do I do?


I have a dashboard widget that is referencing a sheet that recently met the 500,000 cell/row limit. I thought breaking out my sheets by year would be enough space, but I was wrong. Is there a way to keep the look and feel of my dashboard widget, but have it reference 2 sheets (or something like that)?

    Hi @John Stanik

    I hope you're well and safe!

    You could maybe create a so-called Metrics Sheet where you collect data from multiple sheets and then add them together.

    Make sense?

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic weekend!
