RYGB Lights Not Changing with Dates


I am not sure why my lights wont change based on the dates:

=IF([Original Due Date]@row < TODAY(14), "Yellow", IF([Original Due Date]@row < TODAY(7), "Blue", IF([Revised Due Date]@row > [Original Due Date]@row, "Red")))

Would like:

Yellow: <14 days from today

Blue: <7 days from today

Red: Revised Date < Original Date

    Hi Robert,

    I think because the 14 days scenario goes first in the IF formula, so it will run the first scenario first.

    You can try this:

    =IF(AND([Original Due Date]@row >= TODAY(), [Original Due Date]@row <= TODAY(7)), "Blue", IF([Original Due Date]@row < TODAY(14), "Yellow", IF([Revised Due Date]@row > [Original Due Date]@row, "Red")))

    Hope this helps :)
