How about a column where you put "Good" or "Problem"? Then you can sort the spreadsheet by that column. And if you really want colors, you can sort the spreadsheet by good/problem and apply/change the colors in 2 seconds. Then you change back to the default sort.

Bah, shaddup... ...most of the people who are color-blind can at least distinguish between these colours, as long as the difference is clear. As long as you didn't use different shades of green and red, chances are your boss can still see the difference. And I don't know where you live but as far as I know stuff is NOT normally red and blue.

wrong. I am colour blind, you just do not see the colours as everyone else does, so to their boss they could be the same. please know what you're talking about before you start blabbing

God I hate fake fmls. Look, before people start making fake colourblind fmls, at least realise what red/green colourblindness MEANS. And yes 34 you're a liar.

Speaking from experience, as I am colorblind myself, I can see what the colors are, just can't tell different shades. Like if you walk up to me and ask Which is prettier, the cherry or the red wine, honey I am just going to guess lol

Typically, when you're organizing reports it is highly stressed that you utilize the third dimension: color. When you're choosing colors it's a good idea to choose contrasting colors to differentiate 2 types such as... red and green. It draws someones attention far more quickly and reduces clutter so that it is more visually attractive. This isn't something I'm making up off the top of my head either, this is coming from upper-college level communications classes on writing scientific repor

Cool story bro. But #7 didn't knock using color in the spreadsheet, just suggested a way to fix the issue quickly. So your post is just taking up unnecessary space. So is mine, but I'm just cool like that.
