    I do like the shortcut idea. Is there way to have to die roll. One being 1-6 and the other the same. Thanks. Ken

    Ken: In Shortcuts, yes. Have the random number generated twice, then use a "Text" action to concatenate them both. Or a "Calculate" action to add them both and give the result.

    Are you able to exclude numbers within the given range? Example: a sign up sheet for a drawing, where people choose their numbers and once all have signed up there are unselected numbers within the range of possible choices.

    Karl: In that case you would just have all of the numbers in a column, and chose a random row. So if 20 people chose numbers, then they would be rows 1-20. Choose a random number between 1-20 and there is your winner.
