Formula for Health based on State only no dates
Hello, I am new to Smartsheet and I am trying to set up a basic formula for the Health using the color dots. Every formula I try is unparseable. I do not want it reading due dates right now. We are just setting this up and our due dates are work in progress.
What I want is if the State Column reads the below it has corresponding color.
Delayed = Red
Yellow = Not Started
Green = In Progress
Blue = Complete
Thanks

Write all the if statement seperatly then join them together.
if(State@row="Delayed","Red",else...)
if(State@row="Not Started","Yellow",else...)
if(State@row="In Progress","Green",else...)
if(State@row="Complete","Blue","")
Now joint you get:
=if(State@row="Delayed","Red",if(State@row="Not Started","Yellow",if(State@row="In Progress","Green",if(State@row="Complete","Blue",""))))

You can use conditional formatting to conditionally highlight.

Write all the if statement seperatly then join them together.
if(State@row="Delayed","Red",else...)
if(State@row="Not Started","Yellow",else...)
if(State@row="In Progress","Green",else...)
if(State@row="Complete","Blue","")
Now joint you get:
=if(State@row="Delayed","Red",if(State@row="Not Started","Yellow",if(State@row="In Progress","Green",if(State@row="Complete","Blue",""))))

Thank you! That is exactly what I needed. Appreciate the help
