I have two rows with multiple date type columns.
I need to added a conditional formatting where, if the date in row is greater than the date in other row, the cell with greater date needs to be highlighted.
Someone Kindly help.
Unfortunately, it's not possible at the moment to accomplish it without a helper column, but it's a great idea!
Please submit an Enhancement Request when you have a moment.
Can you maybe share some screenshots? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help.
Have a fantastic day!

Feel free to contact me for help with Smartsheet, integrations, general workflow advice, or anything else.
Its actually quite simple. There are two tasks, Task A and Task B. Theoretically, Task B must start once Task A is finished. But sometimes Task B starts even before Task A starts. Also, Task A is a milestone i.e., it takes place only for one day.
I just need to conditionally format the start date cell of Task B (say highlight it) if it starts before Task A.
Happy to help!
You'd have to add a so-called helper column with a formula to show that task B starts before task A.
Would that work?
Could you please elaborate. It would be helpful.
Try something like this.
=IF(ISBLANK(B@row); ""; IF(A@row > B@row; "True"))
The same version but with the below changes for your and others convenience.
=IF(ISBLANK(B@row), "", IF(A@row > B@row, "True"))
Depending on your country you’ll need to exchange the comma to a period and the semi-colon to a comma.
Did it work and make sense?
Hope that helps!
The solution you have provided works. But I have more than 400 rows in each sheet. And the tasks are not equally spaced. So, is it possible to write an equation such that, if it encounters a blank cell in the previous cell, it has to move to another cell. and keep moving until it encounters a non empty cell.
How would you want to use the check for an empty cell and why? What's the use case?

I distributed the form for people to complete, so the form is active, but the data is not populating onto my Smartsheet. Please advise. I would prefer not to have people redo the…
Hello Smart-Heads! This one might sound trivial, but I am looking for an automation to copy limited amount of information from one row to a new row in the same sheet. The sheet contains initial generic information. Column E can be duplicated across the sheet with unique values from column F, assigned to column E, example:…
