Setting up a conditional formatting based on current cell or another cell is easy. But how do you mix them together? Let's say I have the following table:

| id                                   | red | yellow | green |
| e6282843-efc0-44f6-8989-028153adc317 | yes | yes    | yes   |
| 014c7590-5c3f-4260-b251-5098dd825688 |     |        | yes   |
| 6a037de4-0dc6-4e67-966b-7d6187b9d93b | yes |        |       |

I wanna highlight any cell in column red, yellow and green which is empty AND has an id on the id column.
