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.
TIP: 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([% Complete]5 = 1, "Full", "Empty") )
You cannot add your own (custom) symbols to the column.
