How to set up automatic colour coding for your school

On the admin panel, select the 'Colour code' tab.
Colour code tab icon
Scroll to the field you would like to colour code.
Click either of the buttons to add a new rule. 'Simple' rules allow you to compare a field to a fixed value, wheras 'comparison' rules allow you to compare it to the value of another field.

Select the operator (equals, greater than etc) and enter a value/field to compare with. Finally, select a colour.

Note: When comparing two fields with letters in them (for example letter grades), A is considered to be greater than B.
