If FORM is update today than change a textlabel colour

Hello all,

I have a FORM, with contains a "DATE" field that records the date in which this form is submitted  the first time.

Than i have a separate Text label.

Now, I want to change the color of text label just in case one of the Form'card has been changed and submitted today.

So,  what  I would like to get is:

1. When i open the app, text is RED

2. If Form has not been edited and submitted today --> text becomes GREEN

If tomorrow I open again the APP, I need the label Text is again RED, and waits to become GREEN just in case someone update and submit FORM today.


I cannot figured out what I can use in the IF formula, to be inserted in the text label color field.

can you help me?

hope to clearly state the problem

thanks in advance

Follow these steps:

1. Set a Variable OnStart of the App: Set(OldColor,true)

2. On the color property of the label in which you want the color changed, put this formula:

3. Finally, on your submit button, add this to the OnSelect:

Hello eka24,

thank you very much for your solution.

Unfortunatly the variable you are proposing is linked to the app start.

It means that it works correctly when I open app and  then update a form with Submit. 

But now, if I close and open the app, the color returns to OldColor, even if the previous Form has been submitted today.

Else-way, I need the textlabel to keep new color even if the app is closed.

Textlabel colour will keep the information on which a specific Task has been updated or created in the Form, via Submit form.

So I think I need to link the variable to today() function, in some way!

Sorry for do not clearly explain the topic, my fault.


Hi @Amar ,

Using previous logic (you will need to replace YourListName with the actual name). The first Variable is to avoid delegation issues on User().FullName.

            'Created By'.DisplayName = vUserName && Created = Today()

This would look for anything in the list created by the present user today and if present, set OldColor to false.
