In this particular instance, I want the "Production" row to display in Red/Bold since it has subtasks that are past due and not ticked "completed". Is there a way to do this easily?
You would need to add a so-called helper column with a formula that, for example, could check a box for the parent row that meets the conditions and use that in the conditional formatting rule.
Would that work?
I hope that helps!
Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!

Thanks Andree, would you be able to tell me more specifically what kind of formula I need to enter into the column? I get that it's probably an =IF function, but I'm not sure how to define the criteria to flag if the child is red then the parent should be as well.
Try something like this. Add the formula to the parent in the flag column.
=IF(COUNTIFS(CHILDREN([email protected]row); <TODAY(); CHILDREN([email protected]); 0); 1)
The same version but with the below changes for convenience.
=IF(COUNTIFS(CHILDREN([email protected]), <TODAY(), CHILDREN([email protected]), 0), 1)
Depending on your country/region, you'll need to exchange the comma to a period and the semi-colon to a comma.
Did it work?
