Conditional formatting on total not working



I need to have Conditional Formatting for the total of the measures.


I apply conditional formatting from the field pane but it does not seem to work.


Only if I add a field to the columns than the CF works. But I need it to work only on the Total value without breaking it down into columns.

Can it be done?


Thank you,

Hi @Tamir,


What do you mean to have the condittional formatting applying to the total  value without breaking it into columns?


You can apply the conditional formatting to the measures, however this will not include the row of totals only the value data.




Did I answer your question? Mark my post as a solution!

Re: Conditional formatting on total not working

Hi @Tamir,


I suppose the [Recruiting], [Cycle Time] and [Effective Use WD] are all measures, that case, I'm afraid conditional formatting cannot be applied. In your scenario, maybe you could create a summarized table or calculated columns (it's depend on your actual data) instead of measures to get the total values, then add the corresponding fields into Matrix.
