Apply conditional formatting to your cells

What is conditional formatting?


With conditional formatting, you can predefine the format that you want your cells to have, based on a few criteria. Zoho Sheet lets you format your cells with three different types of conditional formatting. They are,
  1. Classic Conditional Formatting.
  2. Color scales
  3. Icon sets


Apply classic conditional formats

To apply single-color/classic conditional formatting,
  1. Click on the Format menu.
  2. Select the Conditional Formatting option.
  3. Click on Classic from the drop down.
  4. Once the Conditional Formatting window appears, select the range of cells you want the conditional formatting to be applied to.
  5. You can format the cells based on cell value, text, date, cell content or a formula.
  6. You can specify how you want the cells to be formatted, by customizing the color, font style, font size etc., 

Apply color scales as conditional formats

To apply color scales as conditional formatting,
