IF checkbox is checked, then populate RYG Ball
Smartsheet Community,
I need some help! I am new to Smartsheet and am having difficulties getting an RYG symbol to populate. I am trying to have the symbol populate on a view only sheet, if a checkbox on another sheet is checked. If the checkbox is not checked I just need it to remain blank. I am using the green check symbol for the RYG. This is the formula I have written, so far it has given me the word "yes" instead of the symbol. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank You.
=IF({Column Referenced on other sheet} = "1", "yes", " ")

Hi Genevieve, thank you for your response.
As it turns out, I was missing the capital in "red', "green" and "yellow".
Once I typed, "Red", "Green", and "Yellow", the RYG balls worked perfectly. I felt foolish once I figured this out, but did learn a lesson on the importance of syntax. Thank again for your help.

Hi Tamara,
Would you be able to provide some more information? Screen captures of each sheet would be ideal, if you can block out any sensitive data.
The reason I'm asking is that it would be useful to know if there something unique in each row that would match it from one sheet to the other. The formula will need some way to look at the correct row when you're referencing it to see if that specific row has a check or not.
In regards to returning a symbol or colour, you will need to actually write out the symbol name... for example, the Red ball would be "Red", or the green is "Green", etc. A list of symbols and their written counterparts can be found in our Help Center, here: https://help.smartsheet.com/articles/2480316availablesymbolsinsymbolscolumn
Thanks!
