Thanks do you want the Events, Task List Event 1, Tasks Event 2, and Task list Event 3 as a drop down boxes ???

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I am building an Task List/To Do Sheet for various departments who work collaboratively on projects/events.You can see the names of the columns, Name of Event, Date of Event, Host, Task, Due Date, Assign to.I need to be able to sort on each column but the Stakeholder column/s needs multiple departments listed and each one needs to be ‘sortable’ presented in a drop down box. Reason is several departments could be involved in one task and could all be ticked/selected when the task is entered. I've put the Departments/Assign to on their own sheet for now.The logic is our event coordinators will be assigned an event, go to the established list of tasks for that event, paste it on the 2016 Events sheet (at the bottom) delete what isn't relevant, assign dates to the tasks and departments and then re-sort the sheet to have the earliest date at the top. We can sort the sheet by event, tasks, departments, due by dates ideally.Does that make sense?
LIZI've placed this column in the hope that multiple departments are tickedI know I need to use Data/Validate but I can't work out the multiple choice data validate area.

Hi
It is the Assigned To that needs to be in a Drop Down Box and it needs to allow multiple selection - i.e. the list that is in the Sheet Data is the one that needs a Drop Down Box - and I need to be able to select multiple departments in that list and then be able to filter/sort on those selections. Can you adjust it to do that please?
Microsoft Office Technician: caraleneK, Office Engineer replied 2 years ago
