Color rules based on today's date instead of a static date

Hi,

I need to highlight all the rows in my table card based on a date field if it is less than or equal to "today". How can I do this instead of setting a fixed date in the condition?

 

Thanks in advanvce for your help!!

Gotcha Sridhar,

 

I think the best solution would be to use a combination of a beastmode and the color rules on a table card.

 

1. Create a beastmode that works as a flag for current date. It will look like this:

case 
when `date_column` = CURDATE() then 'color me'
end

2. You can then add this beast mode to your table, and create a color rule using the chart properties. It might look like something in the screenshot

Hi Sridhar,

 

If I understand your question correctly, something like this in a beastmode might work:

 

 

case 
when `date` <= CURDATE()
then CONCAT('<div style="background-color:#bbe491; width: 100%; height:100%; margin:-20px; padding:20px"><a href="#">', `date`, '</a></div>')
end

Is that what you're looking for?

Thanks for the solution Shummer. In fact, I want to highlight the entire row (7-8 columns) based on the "date"  column value for that row. So if there are 100 records and 10 of them have a date field which is less than or equal to today, I want to highlight those 10 rows.

 

Thanks

Re: Color rules based on today's date instead of a static date

I used the code as you explained with slight modification as below:

case
when `pos_target_date` <= CURDATE() then 'color red'
end

 

Then, I was able to see the option in Color rules as well, but I don't see any rows that meets the criteria being highlited :-(
