Is there a Sharepoint Expert that can help me on this one.

I want to insert traffic lights if certain criterea is met. I have achieved this using single criterea where I set up a column called RAG and a column call Traffic Light, and depending what was in that cell RAG, i.e. R, A or G the Traffic Light will insert the appropriate 'picture' being Red Amber or Green.

What I am now trying to do is include a third dimention but cannot get this to work.

So. my query is ,IF(OR([Status]="WIP",[Status]="Yet to Start",IF([Target Date]<=TODAY(),"<IMG src='http://xxx/yyy/AS/Pictures/_t/kpiryg-2_gif.jpg' />"))

Much appreciate your assistance with this.
Thanks

Hi,
which SharePoint version and edition?
How do you "insert" the picture?
Can you please explain your logic in more details (and pseudo code)?
E.g. you have a column named Status. If the status equals ... and the datetime value in column XYZ > today then display X, if column XYZ < today then Y ...

Thanks.

If you're using SharePoint 2010, this can be done on lists using SharePoint Designer. I've detailed the steps here;

Unfortunately my firm does not allow us to have access to Designer so is there another way of achieving this?

Thanks

So you do not already have that kind of displaying images implemented, correct?

Without SharePoint designer access, the quickest way would be to use a Content Editor web part and some Javascript/jQuery code to change the column content from text to image.

Thanks.

Hi Rainer,

I am doing client side design and development. I don't have access to SharePoint Farm and SharePoint designer (Outsourced). I only have Site level permission (I don't  have Site collection Administrator permission).

KPI (Time) field will create a KPI indicator based on current entered information in the task line (specifically of the milestone expected date fields).


Date Field: KPI (Time)      

Detail:

      KPI (Time) will be triggered from the 6 Milestone Expected Date fields (M1 Date Expected -> M6 Date Expected):
a) If the date required of any of the milestone Expected Date field does is not greater exceed todays date and the complete box is not checked then Project KPI field will = Green

b) If the date required of any of the milestone Expected Date field is greater than todays date (by less than a week) and the complete box is not checked then Project KPI field will = Amber

c) If the date required of any of the milestone Expected Date field is greater than todays date (by more than a week) and the complete box is not checked then Project KPI field will  = Red

Each of our 6 milestones have a date expected and completed (as per the new fields required above). The overall KPI will look across all the milestone date expected fields and generate the KPI status based on any overdue and by how long.

Kindly help.
