Color Code By Column

Hi, I wanted to know if there is a formula that will allow me to color code every entry in an entire field a specific color. For example, I would like every entry under "What's something you find challenging about your role??" to be blue and every entry under "How can we fix this moving forward??" to be red.

  • Quickbase does not support column shading like you might do in Excel.  So you would need to create a Rich Text formula field  and use HTML to do the coloring.  It may not be worth the effort as your data entry fields may be regular text and you would need to use a Rich Text formula for display purposes on the report.

    But if you did want to try to see what say background shading would look like, here is a link about that.
