RAG Changes to Monitor Cooler and Freezer

Options

Hi All-

I have a single dropdown to monitor the temperatures of 2 Coolers and 2 Freezers from incoming forms submitted.

Cooler 1

Cooler 2

Freezer 1

Freezer 2


If the temp for coolers are <=40F, I want the status bar to return green, otherwise red

if the temp for the freezer <=0F, I want the status bar to return green, otherwise red


Is it possible to achieve the results on one incoming spreadsheet?

    Hi @Vinton Douglas,

    Yes , it is possible. Try this sheet with below formula:

    =IF(CONTAINS("Cooler", Products@row), IF(Temperature@row <= 40, "Green", "Red"), IF(CONTAINS("Freezer", Products@row), IF(Temperature@row <= 0, "Green", "Red")))

    Hope that helps.

    In fact, the formula should be working for Cooler 3/4/5/... or Freezer 3/4/5/... because we just check the Cooler text or Freezer text in the Products column.

    Can you post your screenshot so that we can check it out?

    Hi @Vinton Douglas

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Try something like this.

    =IF([Temperature (F)]@row = "", "", IF(CONTAINS("Cooler 1", [Refrigerator Name/Number]@row), IF([Temperature (F)]@row <= "0", "Green", "Red"), IF(CONTAINS("Cooler 1", [Refrigerator Name/Number]@row), IF([Temperature (F)]@row <= "0", "Green", "Red"), IF(CONTAINS("Freezer", [Refrigerator Name/Number]@row), IF([Temperature (F)]@row >= "-40", "Green", "Red")))))

    Did that work?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!

    Thank you very much for your response. It works great! I tried adding another cooler and freezer but its not working. Could you add another aspect to the formula if I want to add Cooler 3 and Freezer 3?

    Hi Gia,

    Thanks much. I created the nested formula and it works great. The only issue is if this is populated on a spreadsheet, the RAG status reflects green or red even if the space under temperature is blank. See formula:

    =IF(CONTAINS("Cooler 1", [Refrigerator Name/Number]@row), IF([Temperature (F)]@row <= "0", "Green", "Red"), IF(CONTAINS("Cooler 1", [Refrigerator Name/Number]@row), IF([Temperature (F)]@row <= "0", "Green", "Red"), IF(CONTAINS("Freezer", [Refrigerator Name/Number]@row), IF([Temperature (F)]@row >= "-40", "Green", "Red")))...


    How can I tweak the formula so that when the temperature is blank, the RAG status remains blank?
