So I have the following:

IF(
TODAY() > {Date Due}, “OVERDUE”
)

I have a Column named ‘Days’ for days left to do my task, so I made the following, using the nested IF tutorial:

IF(
TODAY() > {Date Due}, “OVERDUE”,
IF({Days} < 5, “Soon”)
)

I’m trying to figure out how to add my ‘done’ column to this but I keep on getting errors. So far I tried:

IF(
TODAY() > {Date Due}, “OVERDUE”,
IF({Days} < 5, “Soon”)
IF({Done} = Yes, “Done”)
)

but it says invalid. idk how to return text from a multiple choice??

Hi @Arlo_James_Jackson,

I believe this should do what you want:

IF(
  {Done} = "Yes", 
  "Done",
  IF(
    TODAY() > {Date Due},
    "OVERDUE",
    IF(
      {Days} < 5,
      "Soon"
    )
  )
)
