    Hello Reporter,

    We have been collecting ideas similar to this and determined that there is significant enough demand to accept this idea. I agree with you that supporting this functionality in Excel will make our product stronger and allow competent Excel users an easier Windward experience. I will update this ticket again once development has been started on this functionality. Thank you for your idea and please submit any other suggestions you have to improve our product.

    One of your company's main selling points is that all a person needs to know how to do is format a report in an Office document and off you go. Conditional formatting in Excel is a major formatting tool in Excel that one would certainly expect to have included in a Windward report. Your company CEO reached out recently and asked if I would give Windward a 5 out of 5 stars. It is this kind of missing functionality that would prevent me from giving even a 4 out of 5 star rating. Maybe Excel doesn't get as much use from your customer base as Word, but some of us use Excel extensively and need this type of functionality. Having to use a separate conditional formatting tool that is very confusing means I have to know more than how to format a report in Excel to get the results I want.

    I cannot think of another modern day product where I have to enter a hex value for a color without the ability to use a color picker. This means I have to go to a different product that has a color picker, select the color I want and then copy the hex value over to your product. Doesn't that seem a little silly?

    Hello Reporter,

    This idea has been partially accepted. We have accepted to enable users to open the Condition Wizard from inside the Conditional Formatting Rule Manager. As for the color picker, I have entered a story in our backlog, but we will wait to see interest in this specifically before reviewing the idea again. I entered this new ticket for the color picker, please leave a vote on it if you are still interested: http://ideas.windwardstudios.com/forums/248503-windward-beta-program/suggestions/39340099-add-color-picker-to-conditional-formatting-rule-ma

    Thank you for your suggestion, and please submit any other ideas you have to improve the product.

    We have reviewed this idea internally and have accepted it for development. I will update this idea again when we have started development on this functionality. Thank you for your suggestion, and please submit any other ideas you have to improve our products.

    This functionality needs to be part of the Excel output since Windward's claim is to allow you to design your own stylish reports in Office and simply apply your own data source. If you can't do a basic table styled output, in my opinion that is a major drawback.
