Formatting limitation in Analytics Cloud

I am exploring the tabular report formatting options for my current project.

It is possible to change formatting of any dimension or measure but I face some challenges.

1. When I select one or multiple cells in a table and apply formatting, only formatting is changed for the selected cell/s. I also observe that formatting changes getting applied only to the cells of same column/ field, not all rows. Hence if the table gets new data, it would always come with default formatting and not with customized one.

For example in the attached screen shot -

I select a cell for the column City and applied custom formatting. But it is only applied to the cells which contain same text like the selected cell.

Is there any way I can change the format for all rows of the same column/ field?

      Thanks Tammy for this information. Before this limitation is sorted out, we can't just implement custom formatting where data may change. I am eager to get a solution on this.

    Hello Supriya,

    the formatting depends on what you select and what kind of formatting rules you apply.

    • Hi,

      in case you just want all the columns to be formatted in the same way, you simply select those elements or the complete column and define a formatting rule.

      In case you want to setup formatting based on values, that would be conitional formatting.
