Highlight specific fields within Quicksight Pivot

Im am not sure how to achieve the following and hope someone can provide guidance…

We would like to simply highlight certain fields within a QuickSight pivot. the fields are text.

I saw that conditional formatting only applies to values, not text.

Hi @icrashcars - Welcome to AWS QuickSight community and thanks for posting the question. Yes, you are correct the conditional formatting is applicable to values or measures in the pivot table.

Hi @Biswajit_1993 @David_Wong @SD_QS - Is there anyway we can highlight the text field in Pivot table with some conditions. If not, can we put it as a feature request down the line. Please advise.

HI @icrashcars ,

Currently QuickSight is not provide any conditional formatting for field name . But you can achieve this by hiding the headers and and in the place of headers just create the required number of text field and format the field name.


In the below Table Visual type formatting options just remove the tick mark of show headers.


Step -2
Create the field name as Text box with the below color formatting.

Segment - RED
Service Line - Green
Cost - BLUE


Step -3
Then put all the custom created Text box as Table header.
Now the dashboard look like this


Is it fine for you or you required something else please revert back.

Thanks & Regards
