Task bar conditional formatting for calendar view (non defined task lengths)?

edited 12/09/19 in Smartsheet Basics

Hi guys 

I'm trialling out smartsheet as a content calendar, and as such I'm only including one date (publish dates) - so the sheet won't work as a gantt (which is fine)

HOWEVER, I would need to apply conditional formatting to calendar view (to create an automated colour-coordinated content calendar) but it seems I can't do this as each task doesn't have a task bar to conditionally format colour settings?? 

Scratching my head here - any way to find a work around for calendar view conditional formatting? 

H e l p !
