I need a formula that will provide this conditional formatting in Google Sheets. Please help.

Column H = Date the request was sent
Column I = Date the response was received

I need to ensure I have a response within 2 days of sending the request. So I want column I to update to Yellow 1 day after the request was sent (Column H) & Red 2 days or more after the request was sent (Column H) so I know I need to escalate for a response. What formula could I use in Conditional Format rules?

you'll need two conditional formatting rules:

  1. for red


  2. for yellow
