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

    Write all the if statement seperatly then join them together.


    if(State@row="Not Started","Yellow",else...)

    if(State@row="In Progress","Green",else...)


    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",""))))
