If you’ve ever looked at a web report and wished the important numbers would just jump off of the page, I’d like to share a little trick that might help. It’s called “conditional formatting” and it will make your reports easier to read and understand.
Conditional formatting isn’t anything new. You’ve probably seen it in Excel or in other web reports. Basically, it automatically assigns colors to table cells depending on their value. For instance, if you want all sales numbers below $500,000 to be red and everything above that to be green, conditional formatting will do this for you.
But, how do you apply conditional formatting to your current web reports? We’ve written up a handy article that will explain a quick and (relatively) easy method to apply this technique. You can find it in our forum.
