Hi Community team,

I have a task health column in my project plan sheets that color-codes rows according to status and relative dates. I am attempting to add a new status option to my project plans (Deferred), which I'd like to be color-coded as gray, but something about the formula syntax is not working. I want anything with a status of Deferred to be gray, regardless of other characteristics of that row.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Current formula:

=IF(Status@row = "Complete", "Green", IF(Finish@row = "", "Gray", IF(Status@row = "Deferred", "Gray", IF(Finish@row < TODAY(), "Red", IF(Finish@row < TODAY(5), "Yellow", "Green")))))
