How to make a different rul???

I want to make a rule, so my health symbol automatically turns green if the status changes to completed. Can anyone help?


  • Hi Kira,

    You'll want to create an IF formula in your health symbol column for this.

    NOTE: Don't copy and paste these formulas into your sheet, you'll want to manually type these formulas and use your sheet's column names.

    Here's an example:

    =IF(Status1 = "Completed", "Green")

    You can nest IF statements if you want to have the formula change to different symbols based on various statuses:

    =IF(Status1 = "Completed", "Green", IF(Status1 = "In Progress", "Yellow", IF(Status1 = "Not Started", "Red")))
