It would be great to conditional format a table and/or a matrix based on the cell text, not only numbers

This month we added the ability to format text fields based off a numeric field: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-may-2018-feature-summary/#conditionalFormatting We also are planning on adding a feature that will let you format your text based on comparisons. I'll update this idea based on our progress on that feature.

RE: Conditional Formatting for Text

Formatting based upon text value comparisons would be very desired. Any ideas on when this might be implemented?

RE: Conditional Formatting for Text

It would be great to have conditional formatting based on text. For example, highlight (in colour) all product names, which contain a certain word

This would be great for formatting status text like Red, Yellow, Green.

RE: Conditional Formatting for Text

This is great. It would be great if "data bars" feature can be added as one of the conditional formatting option for text

Thanks Amanda,

Can we have a similar feature for Bar Charts?

Ability to highlight certain category labels on the x or y axis for bar chats using metrics.
