conditional formatting on Forms
Conditional Formatting for Forms as an aid to data entry or to enhance visibility and navigation (in long forms or when forms are being used to browse many records. I would love to be able to highlight blank fields for cases where I want to highlight missing data or data that potentially conflicts but making a field required or conditionally visible would be too restrictive. It would also be good for visual continuity to be able to format a form using the same colors as the table the record belongs to. The data values that merit extra emphasis in a table view still merit that emphasis when inspecting an individual record.

Thank you for reaching out! At this time, you do have the ability to add separate Form sections and apply a different color to each, however, as it sounds like having additional conditional formatting options would be helpful for your Organization's processes, these would be great suggestions for an enhancement to our system. We went ahead and logged two feature requests in your Organization's name with our Product team for them to review and consider expanding the scope of conditional formatting options. We logged the first feature request to allow for highlighting blank fields in red without making them required as you are able to do currently, and the second feature request to allow the user to be taken to different-colored Forms, depending on the conditional formatting colors of the underlying View. We have added your email address to these requests, once these features are released to the system, you will be notified.
In the meantime, I have included a couple of articles from our Knowledge Base on the conditional formatting options we have currently available to use within a view, as well as instructions on making a field required on the form level.
