The issue is that ,"" at the end. Please remove it, as it doesn't make sense. After a "string", it should be another condition for IFS.

IFS function

In other words, the formula should be:

=ifs(I1<31,"Current",I1<91,"31-90",I1<181,"91-180",I1<361,"181-360",I1<541,"361-540",I1>540,"Over 18 months")

My tests on Excel 2016 all passed. The same formula failed like that on my early version including Excel for Mac and Windows.

Please double check if you actually using Excel 2016 for this new feature.
