Formula Quesiton


I have 2 columns - one Engagement and one Desired Engagement - If the two columns are not equal, I want the cell color to be yellow as an indicator. If the two columns are equal then, do nothing. How can write that formula in smartsheets ( since I haven't figured out a way to do it with conditional formatting)?

=IF([Desired Engagement]@row = [email protected], "Do Nothing", "Yellow")

Thanks in advance!

    Hi @Melita Clark

    Try something like this. (in a checkbox column)

    =IF([Desired Engagement]@row = "", "", IF([Desired Engagement]@row = [email protected], 1))

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!
