Point System based on Date

Hi all,

I'm a bit stuck on the best formula or setting to use for this grid i'm working on. The sheet will be a tracking form - points are associated with task on the form based on Date.

For Example:

If a report is submitted on or before 3/31/23- a 100 points is assigned to the task. If the report is submitted between 3/31/23 and 6/30/23 - it's 25 points. If submitted after 6/30/23 it's simply 0 points or Compliance.

I was using an IF statement, which worked well for a single point system however, when I have a scenario as the one above my formula falls apart (likely user error).

Any help or suggestions would be great!

    Hi @S_Ko

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Try something like this. (update the column name to match yours)

    =IF([Report Submitted]@row = "", "", IF([Report Submitted]@row > DATE(2023, 6, 30), "Compliance", IF([Report Submitted]@row <= DATE(2023, 3, 31), 100, IF([Report Submitted]@row <= DATE(2023, 6, 30), 25))))

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic weekend!
