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.

Come on PBI, get this over the line! We need to be able to easily conditional format text like in Excel. IF the value is Yes, the colour text green etc.

RE: Conditional Formatting for Text

This feature is very welcomed to highlight status informations like on track etc.
conditional format on field content is very helpful.

Please improve PowerBi by this function - since May 2018 its planned....
