I want to write an if formula that will mark one column as delivered based on a tag in another column.

For example, i have one column for "substage" and another column for "stage". I'm trying to make the stage column change based on what is in the substage column. i believe that it would have to be a nested if function.

If the column in substage is tagged as "internal review" i want the stage column to say "post production"
If the substage column "client review" i want the stage column to say "post production"
Basically i just want the stage column to feed off the substage column with multiple different tags related to the stages.

Thanks for your help.

If() function combined with contains() should do the trick.
For example:

if(and(contains(prop("Sub-stage"), "Assambled"), contains(prop("Sub-stage"), "Quality assurance passed")), "Finished good", "in production")

Formula checks if Sub-stage contains both tags: 'Assambled', 'Quality assurance passed'. If it does, then it shows 'finished good' text, otherwise 'in production'.

Hope that helps.
