Assistance with indicating a blank outcome

Options

Hi there,

Please help!

I have a task tracking sheet.

Users can add a new task via a form. They can manage their tasks through a report filtered to them (I do not want them working on the master sheet).

When a task is closed I have the date completed (automatically captured).

However when someone adds a task in the form and closes it there and then the 'Date completed' is not captured.

I want to see how timely people are in managing their tasks.

For column Date Difference I have used the formula

=[Date Completed]@row - [End Date]@row

For column Timeliness Status I have used the formula

=IF([Date Difference]@row < 0, "Early", IF([Date Difference]@row = 0, "On Time", IF([Date Difference]@row > 1, "Late")))

I am stumped as to how to get the next bit right:

If "Status" is "Complete" and "Date complete" is blank then add 'NULL" to "Date Difference" and "On Time - Closed in Form" to Timeliness Status.



Thanks in advance!

    Hi @Tamsyn

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Try something like this.

    In the Date Difference Column

    =IF(AND([Date Completed]@row = "", Status@row = "Complete"), "NULL", [Date Completed]@row - [End Date]@row)

    In the Timeliness Status Column

    =IF(AND([Date Completed]@row = "", Status@row = "Complete"), "On Time - Closed in Form", IF([Date Difference]@row < 0, "Early", IF([Date Difference]@row = 0, "On Time", IF([Date Difference]@row > 1, "Late"))))

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic weekend!
