Auto adding Cells to one singular Cell when a column is triggered.



I am trying to figure out how to Add cells to another cell when a column is triggered. I have a column of numbers that I need to add to another cell as soon as that row changes to another statuse. For example; The Statues column, when it changes from drafting in progress to drafting completed. I need a cell in that row to automatically add the amount to Service Group/2 cell to get a total amount of drafting work that is completed so far in the footage column.

Yellow is trigger/Blue is the number that needs to be added/Brown is the single cell I need all the footages to add up to once yellow is triggered.

    Hi @C_Herrell are you looking for a total of all of the Drafting Complete rows? If so, put the following formula in your Service Group Column in row 2

    =SUMIF(Status:Status, "Drafting Complete", Footage:Footage)

    When the Status of your rows gets updated to "Drafting Complete", the Footage will be automatically added to the total in row 2.

    Is that what you were going after?
