Hi all,

I am creating a spreadsheet to track job progress. Each job has upto 8 different tasks.

For each task
I have 3 columns in a table named "Required", "Booked" and "complete"
Required will a yes/no from drop down box
booked and received will contain dates

I then have 8 columns in the table that I would like to indicate the status of each task by changing the fill coulour.
Task required - if no fill=grey
required but no booked date - red fill
required and booked date - yellow fill
completed date - green fill.

I have started using conditional formatting but I feel like there should be an easier way given the are 8 columns I would need to apply each condition to


Thank you in advance for your help

Dave

So I gave It go but it didnt exactly go to plan...

Is it possible to just start with the first step maybe?


A8 is first column of the table "JOBS". column title "NAME"
I enter text into cell a A9
Cell G9 turns PURPLE (RGB 214,48,197)

If i delete text in cell A9 then cell G9 returns to no fill

Thanks again

Did you try my script I provided earlier?
Do you understand the script automatically runs when you enter a value in a cell.
So what happened when you used my script?
