I have a [Due By] date column and a [Monday] checkbox column.  I'm trying to create a formula that will check the box on any [Due By] that is a Monday.

I got as far as getting the box to check if today is Monday: 

=IF(WEEKDAY(TODAY()) = 2, 1, 0)

But can't figure out the rest. 

Thanks for your help!



You have done the hard yards, just replace TODAY() with [Due By]@row


=IF(WEEKDAY([Due By]@row) = 2, 1, 0)

Genius!  Thank you, Andrew!

I'm new at all this. 

Another thing I'd like to do that's related to this is to have Smartsheet send me an alert on Monday mornings that tells all the things that have due dates this week, including that Monday.   But I can't figure that out. 

I'm thinking it would have something to do with changing the formula so the box is unchecked and it only checks once that Monday arrives.  Then the alert can be "When a row is added or changed, when Monday changes to Checked..."  However I don't know how to finish the alert to be sure it's sending me all the things due that week.  : (   

Any thoughts on that?

I'd recommend setting up a report instead and have that send automatically each Monday or whatever makes sense.

Would that work?

Have a fantastic week!
