Applying "transparent" conditional formatting in the UX
When we apply conditional formatting to a grid in the UX, there is no option to set a transparent color. However, with some creative use of specific color codes, we can simulate the transparent effect.
I will focus on two specific cases below: editable cells and read-only cells. Both of these cases follow the same approach of picking the correct color for your default cells by leveraging the UX ability to manually enter a hex code for your color.
Transparent conditional formatting for editable cells
Setting a transparent conditional formatting background for editable cells is fairly intuitive. Editable cells in Anaplan will always have a white background, so you can pick the preset option for white in your color picker. Alternatively, you can manually enter a custom hex code of #FFFFFF.
Transparent conditional formatting for read-only cells
Setting a transparent conditional format background for read-only cells is actually equally as simple! You just need to know the hex color code for read-only cells in Anaplan, which is #F7F9FD.
