Feature Request For Google Sheets - Conditional Formatting - 'Cell Is Not Empty'

An almost embarrassingly simple but important feature request.

There is currently a conditional formatting option for 'Cell is empty' but not an option for 'Cell is not empty' or 'Cell contains data'.

There is an option for 'Cell contains' and its opposite 'Cell does not contain'. There is an option for 'Cell is empty' but not its opposite.

This is a very simple but powerful feature that allows any cell with any data in it to be formatted in some way.

Is this the right place to post this feature request and if not, can someone help by posting a link to where I can propose this feature request?
