Need a conditional formula to automate status column based on values in date columns

Here's a screenshot of a very simple sheet I've set up where I've manually set the Status. I want to automate the value selection from the "Status" dropdown based on the presence of dates (Actuals) in my Start and End columns:

  • If the Start and End columns are blank, Status is "Not Started"
  • If Start has a date and End is blank, Status is "In Progress"
  • If Start has a date and End has a date, Status is "Complete"

Is this possible? Can someone suggest a formula with @row that I can try applying here?
