Highlighting a value in table visual based on Name

Hello everyone,

I have a very simple table visual (sorry i am not able to upload pic here) with Store Manager, Total Orders.

I want to highlight the Store Manager name based on Logged in user. Conditional formatting option doesn’t help me with it.

E.g. my logged in user is “John”. I want to highlight John cell with yellow.

Any ideas ?

I don’t believe there is any simple way to do this.

Depending on the complexity around the number of users I would have a good think about if this is worth doing it this particular way.

The only way I can think about doing this currently is with the USERNAME function


Then going through the conditional formatting area and setting rules for each persons username.

Honestly I wouldn’t do this myself as to much overhead and areas where this could go wrong.

Maybe there’s a better way, but I just can’t think of it right now.

Thanks. I have used a similar work-around. I have created a measure that identifies if “Store Manager” name matches with USERPRINCIPLENAME().

I had to create an additional table with Store Manager and their email address. Based on the measure, I have used conditional formatting on the Store Manager.

It’s not straight but i don’t know if there is an easier way to do this !!
