I would love the ability to add a color background to the cells in a particular column. This would greatly help in making the column standout. Is this possible? If not please add this functionality. It’s very easy in Excel. Thanks

Welcome to the community, @Geoffrey_Weg! :grinning_face_with_big_eyes: Airtable fields don’t currently support background colors. There’s probably an existing request for this elsewhere in the forum; I suggest doing a quick search and showing your support once you find the relevant thread(s). In the meantime, a common way around this is to include colored emoji, especially in formula-generated field values.

Good work around. Thank you. I just created a new column and added it with emojis in each cell to help create a visual distinction.
