Training Database Help

I have a column that has the date that safety training was completed.

I would like the cell to turn red if the date is expired.

The date would be three years after the training was taken. I tried to use conditional formating but could not figure out to set up the correct statement to format the cell red?

    Hi @Bill W

    I hope you're well and safe!

    • You could select that the date should be in the past and then when it's in the past in the future, it would color it red.

    Make sense?

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

    Best,

  • That's helpful but there are different dates for each employee in the column. Can I set a date for each cell or is there a way to say 365 days from turn red?

    Not sure I follow!

    Can you describe your process in more detail and maybe share the sheet(s)/copies of the sheet(s) or some screenshots? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help. (share too, [email protected])
