We are looking to use a snapshot field to record labour rates, all works well when we create individual records but problem is our estimators grid edit a report and add multiple items directly into the report. Am i correct in assuming this will not trigger the snapshot ? Is there any way to get this to work or will i need to head down the route of using triggers and form rules. Thanks

While I have not specifically tested, the snapshot is taken when the lookup is done, in either forms or grid edit.  No reason it should not snapshot in Grid Edit.
