Conditionally Highlighting on Column Values in a View

Avatar

Level 9

Hi WF Community,

Wondering if anyone can help me with text mode that will assist in adding conditionally highlighting to a view on a project report?

  1. % complete = 100% AND status is NOT complete (highlight background or text in red)
  2. start date before today AND status = planning (highlight background or text in red)
  3. end date is before today AND status does not = complete (highlight background or text in red)

Thanks.

Nick

Hey Nick,

I wasn't able to get this to work in the percent complete column, but in a status column, I was able to get the complete & 100% grey (white wouldn't work), and the not complete & 100% red with the standard rules:

0694X00000C1BKQQA3.jpgIt was super finicky and if I made changes to them after creating (I forgot to apply to the entire row), it stopped working, not sure why.

Here is the text mode:

enumclass=com.attask.common.constants.ProjectStatusEnum

linkedname=direct

namekey=status

querysort=status

styledef.case.0.comparison.icon=false

styledef.case.0.comparison.isrowcase=true

styledef.case.0.comparison.leftmethod=status

styledef.case.0.comparison.lefttext=status

styledef.case.0.comparison.operator=in

styledef.case.0.comparison.operatortype=string

styledef.case.0.comparison.righttext=CPL

styledef.case.0.comparison.trueproperty.0.name=bgcolor

styledef.case.0.comparison.trueproperty.0.value=e8e8e8

styledef.case.0.comparison.truetext=

styledef.case.1.comparison.icon=false

styledef.case.1.comparison.isrowcase=true

styledef.case.1.comparison.leftmethod=percentComplete

styledef.case.1.comparison.lefttext=percentComplete

styledef.case.1.comparison.operator=eq

styledef.case.1.comparison.operatortype=double

styledef.case.1.comparison.righttext=100

styledef.case.1.comparison.trueproperty.0.name=bgcolor

styledef.case.1.comparison.trueproperty.0.value=eac6c9

styledef.case.1.comparison.truetext=

textmode=false

type=enum

valuefield=status

valueformat=val

row.0.styledef.applyallcases=true

row.0.styledef.case.0.comparison.icon=false

row.0.styledef.case.0.comparison.isrowcase=true

row.0.styledef.case.0.comparison.leftmethod=status

row.0.styledef.case.0.comparison.lefttext=status

row.0.styledef.case.0.comparison.operator=in

row.0.styledef.case.0.comparison.operatortype=string

row.0.styledef.case.0.comparison.righttext=CPL

row.0.styledef.case.0.comparison.trueproperty.0.name=bgcolor

row.0.styledef.case.0.comparison.trueproperty.0.value=e8e8e8

row.0.styledef.case.0.comparison.truetext=

row.0.styledef.case.1.comparison.icon=false

row.0.styledef.case.1.comparison.trueproperty.0.value=eac6c9

row.0.styledef.case.1.comparison.truetext=

Hope that helps!

Hi Nick- you should be able to achieve all of this via the Column Rule on your report columns. In Report Edit- click on a column header, then you will see Advanced Options- add Column Rules to highlight for each of the metrics you are looking for. I like to adjust it from there, so next steps (i.e. if you want varying red shades), go back into the column, Edit Text mode, change the color of the background/font to a brighter/bolder color by looking up the CSS code for a color you want. For example:

This is the Workfront text mode code for background color of red is a light red:

styledef.case.0.comparison.trueproperty.0.name=bgcolor

styledef.case.0.comparison.trueproperty.0.value=eac6c9

Google CSS colors, pick the red you want, and replace just the code and save

Thanks, Sara.

I'm familiar what you described. On my end, it's the part where there are multiple conditions that need to be met (AND statement). E.g. % complete = 100% AND status is NOT complete, then highlight status field in red.

Not sure how to work that into the text mode code for conditional highlighting, as noted here.

I'm using a workaround - the addition of custom columns with an IF && valueexpression and a text result, but I'm still curious how to use conditional highlighting on existing native fields when multiple criteria is required.

@Doug Den Hoed‚ - hate to bother you, but based on a link you sent me to to wf-pro.com for something else, I found an example (Ref # 14602) of conditional highlighting a field value, and it includes a valueexpression that allows for an IF statement. I'm thinking this could work for my above asks; however, the text mode code I modified doesn't seem to be working. Wondering if you could take a quick peek when you get a moment?

Ask: conditionally highlight a view on a project report

Scenario: % complete = 100% AND status is NOT complete (highlight background or text in red)

Text mode...

displayname=% Complete

linkedname=direct

namekey=percentcomp

querysort=percentComplete

styledef.case.0.comparison.icon=false

styledef.case.0.comparison.leftmethod=percentComplete

styledef.case.0.comparison.lefttext=percentComplete

styledef.case.0.comparison.operator=notblank

styledef.case.0.comparison.operatortype=double

styledef.case.0.comparison.righttext=

styledef.case.0.comparison.trueproperty.0.name=bgcolor

styledef.case.0.comparison.trueproperty.0.value=eac6c9

styledef.case.0.comparison.truetext=

textmode=true

valueexpression=IF({percentComplete}="100"&&{status}!="CPL")

valueformat=doubleAsPercentRounded

Thanks, regardless of whether you manage to take a look or not.

Hi Nick,

Try adding this column to your Project View; I set it up on the % Complete field (and quite like it), but you can easily copy only (but all of) the styledef. rows and paste them onto the tail end of any column (in text mode) you wish.

Regards,

Doug

Thanks, Doug!

When looking at my criteria for % complete = 100% AND status is NOT complete, your text mode code works in that it highlights the Percent Complete field when it's 100%, but it doesn't seem to be accounting for the the Status field not equaling Complete. I tried modifying your code, but I'm coming up empty.

Thanks Sarah; well done!

Nick, I expect Sarah's example will do the trick, but if you still need a hand, just let me know.

Hi Sarah!

Hope you are well. Thanks for the workaround. Nice creative thinking.

I'll see if this is something our teams can work with.
