Capabilities

Who can use this capability

People with Owner or Admin (you must have a license) permissions to the sheet can to add or edit a column.

 

The Symbols column displays an image to convey a meaning. Use a Symbols column to describe the status of a row or to indicate that something needs your attention for follow-up. 

You cannot add your own custom symbols to the column.

You can use formulas in a Symbols column. To do this, use the text values of the symbols. For example, to manipulate the value in a Symbols column that uses Status symbols, you might create a formula similar to the following: =IF([Percent Complete]5 = 1, "Full", "Empty"))

The following table list the available symbols, the text values for symbols for use in formulas, and an image of what the symbols look like.
