Conditional formatting based on date

Options

Good morning,

I need a formula that will turn the date in the Attempted Contact column grey, if it is more than one day past the date in the Assigned column.

Is this possible?

    Hi @skh,

    You will need to use a "helper" column for this. Create a new column that will track if the Attempted Date meets the criteria - I suggest a check box.

    I created a checkbox column called "Attempted Contact (Helper)" - this can be hidden. I added the following formula: "=IF([Attempted Contact]@row > (Assigned@row + 1), 1)". This will check the box once the date is greater that 1 day late.

    Next, you can create a conditional format based on that checkbox,

    Hope this helps,

    Dave

    Thank you! This worked perfect. I have two other columns that will need a similar formula:

    I need a formula that will turn the date in the Contacted Date column grey, if it is more than one day past the date in the Assigned column.

    And I need a formula that will turn the date in the Planned Inspection column grey, if it is more than two days past the date in the Assigned column.
