    Hi @AGM ,

    ahh, the screenshot makes it easier to help :-)

    What you need is a nested IF formula that caters for your status.

    As you have only 4 colour balls but 5 options you may need to switch to other symbols providing more than 4 icons.

    For easier reading let's say: refining = 1 / defined = 2 / in-progress = 3 / completed = 4 / accepted = 5.

    =IF([Schedule State]@row = "1", "Red", IF([Schedule State]@row = "2", "Yellow", IF([Schedule State]@row = "3", "Green", IF([Schedule State]@row = "4", "Blue", "Grey"))))

    Hope this helps
