I have a Due Date column and Completion Date column, how do I set up a formula to show when the completion date is past the due date and highlights it?
In order to do this I believe you need a "helper" column. This is a column set up on the sheet to provide some logic which will drive your conditional format. The helper column doesn't need to be visible.
I would set up a checkbox column called something like Is Overdue? with the following formula =IF([Completion Date]@row > [Date Due]@row, 1, 0)
Then in the conditional formatting screen you would use the Is Overdue column to define the formatting for the Completion Date column. See screen shot below.
Hope this helps
You'll need to use a so-called helper column with a formula that checks the dates and then use that for the conditional formatting rule.
Can you describe your process in more detail and maybe share the sheet(s) or some screenshots? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help. (share too, [email protected])
Would that work?
I hope that helps!
Have a fantastic weekend!

Would it be beneficial to include an option that enables a forms user to complete a form and then initiate a new submission for the same form. Currently, users can navigate back using the browser's back button, but they are required to overwrite all the previous answers, which can be cumbersome.
I have data in Excel that I need to import on a weekly basis into Smartsheet (lets say columns A-F) I would like to have columns (lets say G-H) with formulas.
