    Hi Mary,

    I looked into it and you are correct, right now Looker only supports conditional formatting on numerical values. I'll take this feedback to the team to pass along to Looker but in the meantime, a possible workaround would be to add a calculation to make it numerical (e.g. if 'yes' show '1', if not show '0') and then you can apply a conditional rule on 0s.

    Let me know if that works for you.

    I agree that conditional formatting based on text values would be greatly beneficial to our team.  We especially would like to highlight missing values in our reports to bring these to the attention of the report consumers, but this must be done outside of AlayaCare at the moment.
