Add conditional formatting on multiple line items at once

Add conditional formatting on multiple line items at once

Ability to add conditional formatting on more than one line item at a time.

 

It will save a lot of time spent on formatting if can be just selected the line items which needs to be formatted from a module and add it at once, instead of line by line.

This would help a lot. On top of that it would be great to set up a default formatting, that will be show/selected whenever the formatting is used. Most of the time the formatting has to do with indicating what cells are open for input. In that case the default formatting can be used and in all other cases like error flagging the formatting can be set manual.

This would be very beneficial to our team as well. We use a lot of conditional formatting on saved views of modules and dashboards. From a model builder perspective, the current process to add conditional formatting is clunky and requires a lot of seemingly-unneccessary repetition.

 

It would also be very beneficial to have changes made to conditional formatting in a saved view of a module carry forward to dashboards that have that saved view published without requiring the saved view to be re-published before it reflects the changes to the conditional formatting. (ie. when you make conditional formattig changes to a saved view, the dashboard would immediately reflect the changes).

Wow... This is a popular request! How can we say no - we can't.
We'll be revamping these screens as we add conditional formatting in the New UX so we'll make sure we have a quick way of applying the same conditional format to multiple line items.
