RAG Formula Used with Duration (Project Settings)


Smartsheet Community:

I have a Formula (Below) that I am using for RAG but the Results come back Blank. Does anyone know if it is because the Duration is part of the Project Setting that is Hard Coded in Smartsheet?

Formula:=IF(Duration@row = [Total Capacity (Hours)]@row, "Yellow") and Screen Shots

    Hi @Ray B

    Yes, it’s because of the Project Setting, so it needs to be calculated with 0.125 to match.

    Here’s an example that probably would work if you remove the h after the hours in the Total Capacity (Hours) column.

    Try something like this.

    =IF(Duration@row = [Total Capacity (Hours)]@row * 0.125, "Yellow")

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!

    That worked, but what does 0.125 represent? Because I have to add to the Formula, for example if Duration exceed Total Capacity (Hours) turn Red.
