Hello Smartsheet Community,
Would anybody know how to write a formula to tick a check box once a date in another column is reached.
Many thanks in advance😊
Try something like this.
This formula will tick the box if the date is today or earlier. Because the formula contains the TODAY function, the sheet will need to på activated for the formula to update.
=IF([email protected] <= TODAY(); 1)
The same version but with the below changes for your and others convenience.
=IF([email protected] <= TODAY(), 1)
Depending on your country, you’ll need to exchange the comma to a period and the semi-colon to a comma.
Would that work?
I hope that helps!
Have a fantastic week!

Happy to help!
Apologies! I forgot to add the check for when it's blank.
=IF(NOT(ISBLANK([email protected])); IF([email protected] <= TODAY(); 1))
=IF(NOT(ISBLANK([email protected])), IF([email protected] <= TODAY(), 1))
Depending on your country you’ll need to exchange the comma to a period and the semi-colon to a comma.
Did it work?
Thanks very much for the input. The formula works perfectly, but it ticks any cells without a date. How could I overcome this ? If I fill the cell with text it goes INVALID and I cannot fill the cell with a date that is far in the future.
Yep that sure did it :).
I could probably benefit from learning some of this. You wouldn't have to bail me out all the time then.
Thanks very much again Andrée.
I'm always happy to help!
