Gantt colour bar and % complete colour

Does anyone know how to change the % complete colour in a Gantt chart? The colour of the colour bar and the % complete are too close and I would like a bit of contrast. ie blue colour bar and yellow % complete.

    I don't think there is a way to differentiate them like this.

    Conditional formatting seems to affect both so no luck there.


    Unless I missed it .. 


    Aside to Smartsheet:

    I was hoping that conditional formatting (when 0% >= 0 for example) would allow this but the Task Bar formatting is only available when "entire row" is selected.

    Linking Duration to the outer box and % Complete to the inner one might make sense or just adding them as an additional column choice under the "to the ___" configuration. Better would be just a place to set these two formats.




  • Thanks Craig, appreciate your help looking into this, the existing configuration makes it difficult to differentiate the %completed. I am used to MSProject where there is a clear distinction.

    You can change the base color but the % Complete appears to be just a different shade of it.

    That was my original point - SmartSheet should change the design i think so you can choose the % complete colour

    No argument from me.
