SharePoint Conditional Formatting

Randal Flinn 311 Reputation points


I am looking for the easiest way to apply conditional formatting (color) to a field. I have a Priority Field with high, Medium and Low. On the list I would like High to have a red background and bold white font, Medium would have a yellow background with black font and Low would have a green background with black font.

I am using a server based version of SharePoint 2013.

    Thanks for "blurring" the information.

    I have arrived at the following screen and did enter the https; however, I still don't understand how this works. The Priority field is the one that I want to be color coded.

    Thanks for all your help...I finally got it!

    Will that process also work on the other "pages"? I am interested in creating a Workflow that emails individuals and in the email I would like red, yellow and green based on the priority.
