I am sharing a excel spread sheet and trying to filter by cell color. It works unshared but as soon as i enable sharing, the option is disabled. Is there a fix for this?

@NikolinoDE Your information is helpful, I just do not have access to those options under the filter tab while the file is in "Shared" mode. that is the fix I'm looking for. Additionally, i do not want to download and install several apps just to restore this function. If it is not possible to filter by cell color while sharing a document, i will need to find a workaround.
