Help - Automating Health Column



I am trying to automate the health column based on the status of the task (Ex. If status=In Progress, then the health column will have the green symbol)

I'm on the right lines but when I want to add different status to the formula I keep getting an error.

=IF(Status@row = "Completed", "Blue")

Completed = Blue

In Progress = Green

In Planning = Grey

Not Started = Blank

At Risk = Red

    Hi @erayer

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Try something like this.

    =IF(Status@row = "Completed", "Blue", IF(Status@row = "In Progress", "Green", IF(Status@row = "In Planning", "Gray", IF(Status@row = "Not Started", "", IF(Status@row = "At Risk", "Red")

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic weekend!
