If cell fill is a given hex color code, then return value

edited 12/09/19 in Archived 2017 Posts

How can I identify the hex color code for the cell fill options?

I want to write an IF statement to return value of 1 if the hex color code is the darkest blue (as an example).  

A little background.... reporting 6 status stages so the symbols aren't an option. Thanks in advance for your help!

    Unfortunately, this is not possible with current Smarsheet functionality.

    To get around this limitation, I'd consider a dropdown list with your named status types (e.g. Complete, On Hold etc.) and simply add in Conditional Formatting to change the cell fill based on the value.
