Conditional Formatting (modified date not in the last 3 weeks)

Options

I would like to use Conditional Formatting (highlight the entire row yellow) if the modified date is not within the last 3 weeks.

So any row that has not been recently updated (last 3 weeks) should be highlighted in yellow.

Is this spmething that can be done directly within conditional formatting or should I first create a helper variable?


Thanks.

    There is no direct way to do this. Adding a checkbox helper column with something similar to this and then formatting based on the checkbox is the simplest way. You can even hide the extra column, as there is no reason for it to be visible.

    =IF([Modified Date]@row < TODAY(-21), 1, 0)
