I have dates in column D in Google Sheets. I want the cells to highlight red if 30 days have passed and there is not a comment date in column F.


Column D: Submittal Date 6/29/2019
Column F: Comments Received (date)

If I don't receive comments within 30 days of submittal date the cell should turn red to alert me to follow up.

1 Answer 1


=IF((NOT(D1>TODAY()-30)) * (F1="") * (D1<>""), 1)
