It would be great to have conditional formatting capabilities in reports. Here's a great example of it...

Hi Tony,

Are we referring to the formatting only in terms of font? or are there any other formatting that we need to look upon?

Thanks,
Aashnee

Hi Aashnee,
I would love to have all of the options in the link I posted. But, I think the most helpful would text, cell, and row colorization. Those are most likely to make something "pop" and that's the point, in my opinion. E.g., "stop light" (red, yellow, green) highlighting of values.

This is a great idea, I can see many cases where it would be useful.  We do not have this in our immediate roadmap, but it is something to consider as we look at ways to improve our reporting.

In the meantime the best workaround I can think of is to use the excel export to get the report data into a spreadsheet where its formatting functionality can be used.
