Check box to clear formatting


I want to make it so that once done is selected, it clears formatting. I tried doing this via conditional formatting but the clear format (white with black text) makes the condition appear incomplete. Is the only way around this to change the default format of the rows?

Thank you,

    Hi Esperanza,

    I’d recommend setting the formatting options in Conditional Formatting.

    Keep in mind that the Conditional Formatting prioritizes the rules from top to bottom, so maybe that is the reason why you're not getting the desired result.

    Make sense?

    Did that work?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!
