Conditional Coloring

With conditional coloring, you can easily apply coloring to cells that meet your defined criteria to visually emphasize or differentiate among the data on your board. This article will cover the basics of how conditional coloring on monday.com works. Let's get into it! 🎉

Note: The conditional coloring feature is available from the Standard plan and above.


How does it work?

You will find the conditional coloring tool at the top of your board:


Selecting "Conditional coloring" will open the following menu where you can begin to choose your conditions as well as your colors:



Choose a color

Just like with groups and status labels, you can choose the color for your conditional coloring. And there are a lot of colors to choose from!



Choose your conditions

Choosing your conditions is simple. First, choose the column. Then, choose the condition. Then, enter the value. The value can be text or a number. Press Enter and your formatting will apply:


Note: The only supported columns at this time are the Item name, Date, Person, Numbers, Text, Long Text, and Timeline.


Add and delete conditions

You can add and delete conditions with ease! To add a condition, choose "+ Add color" at the bottom of the conditional coloring menu. To delete a condition, press on the "x" to the right of the condition that you want to delete.




Save to a new view

Save your conditional coloring to a new view by first setting your conditions and then choosing the "Save as new view" button in the upper right-hand corner of the menu:



Overlapping conditions

If you add multiple conditions, all conditions will apply. You can not choose to apply one or the other yet.

If you choose two conditions that encompass data that intersect, the last rule you apply will supersede the first. For example, if you add the following rule: 


And then add this new rule:


Your board will look like this:
