Hello,

I am creating a workflow document utilizing one sheet to store all jobs, with proceeding sheets to delegate jobs to staff members based on a drop down selection and populate proceeding sheet(s) with information from the first sheet.

For example,

I will input the job information on the first sheet: Client name, task, assigned to, priority and deadline.
Based on who I select as "assigned to" I want Client, task, priority and deadline to populate one of the proceeding sheets (eg admin, sales, marketing, design, programming)
It has to bump down to a new line each time a new task is entered.

I also want Sheet 1, Priority to update each time it is updated on one of the proceeding sheets. If Joanna is working on a task, and she chooses, "In Progress" from the dropdown menu for 'Status' on her sheet, I want it to update the Sheet 1: Admin Sheet, so a supervisor can look at one sheet and see where we are with each task. I will send the actual doc if necessary. I really need help with this. Thank you,
