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.

August 2019 and still no further forward - it should be easy to add CF for text-based columns AND for CF in one column based on the text or number value in another. You've added icons - why not look at this, too?

RE: Conditional Formatting for Text

Please please please add ability to do conditional formatting based on actual text! Would make data cards so much more powerful if I could change font or background color to stand out based on word displayed. For example "Go" would be in GREEN, "No Go" would be in RED

It would be great if the expansion of this feature allowed for DAX statements as this would really open up the functionality

Really unfortunate this is not possible. Would be extremely easy to do in a DAX if statement. Please add

RE: Conditional Formatting for Text

Hi! Just wondering if we have a conditional formatting feature in Power BI if it's an alphanumeric cell? Thank you!
