The ability to reuse conditional formatting rules

Hi Guys,


Is there a possibility of having the ability to reuse conditional formatting rules multiple times instead of having to redo them every time you create a new report or you need to apply them on different columns?

Hi Lebo,

I hope all is well,

Unfortunately this is not possible... Something similar to this has been raised before, this can be found here. Let me know your thoughts on this.

Hi Mark,


This is a pain though and it is not reducing work for our clients.

Imagine having for example 5 client orgs and they all have conditional formatting and now you have to go through each and every client org and report just to update the conditional formatting.


I think Yellowfin needs to look deeper into this. If they can create a functionality similar to reference codes that we can use all the time it would be great.

Hi Lebo,

That sounds fair enough, maybe you could add your views to the Idea raised? It would then re-open the discussion around our options for conditional formatting.
