    Depending on the selection you make here, the system uses different background colors to highlight the values. The exception is displayed with the background color of the data cell or characteristic cell. The color shading ranges from dark green for alert level Good1 through yellow for alert level Critical 1 to dark red for alert level Bad3. There are a total of nine color shades, representing nine different levels of priority.

    You can choose from the following alert levels:

    • Good1
    • Good2
    • Good3
    • Critical1
    • Critical2
    • Critical3
