    Using the GroupElementFormatting event, I would like to format the values based on knowledge of the original data column. 

    So  how does one get the PropertyGroupDescription when knowing the PivotGroupElement?

    Hi Brian,

    Thank you for writing.

    The arguments provided by the GroupElementFormatting event provide access to the data object of the current PivotGroupElement. Knowing that object and depending on your business logic you can modify the visual appearance of the group element: Formatting Appearance. Please also check my snippet below: 
    private void radPivotGrid1_GroupElementFormatting(object sender, PivotGroupElementEventArgs e)
        string name = e.GroupElement.Data.Name;
        if (name == "Copy holder" || name == "Mouse pad")
            e.GroupElement.BackColor = Color.LightGreen;
            e.GroupElement.ResetValue(LightVisualElement.BackColorProperty, ValueResetFlags.Local);

    I am also sending you a screenshot showing the result on my end.

    I hope this helps. Should you have further questions please do not hesitate to write back.
