The progress tracking column allows you to combine all the status columns of each item into one, beautiful battery-like view. This column is a must to visually keep track of the progress of your tasks.
How to add it?
To add it, click on the + icon located on the top right of your board and select "more columns".
Once in the columns center, search for "Progress Tracking" and select it as in the screenshot below:
How does it work?
Once you've added the column, your progress bar will show you the percent to completion of your tasks based on the different status columns of your board. The percentage in each item represents the amount of tasks marked as "done". For instance, in the last two bars, it shows 0% because nothing has been done yet.
The percentage to completion at the footer (located below the column) will show the overall percentage of tasks marked as done within the group. Whenever you mark a task as done, the percentage updates accordingly. Whenever you update your status columns to "done", the progress bar of your item will show 100%.
Define your settings
- Status labels
In each of your board, you can choose the labels that define a status as done. Click on your status column and pick "column settings". From there, click on the label color you want to pick as "done".
This will impact the % of "done" tasks showing in your progress tracking column.
- Pick which status columns you want to connect with the progress tracking
If you have several status columns in your board to represent a different phase of a task, you can pick each of these columns to be linked to the progress tracking. Over the progress column header and click on the right arrow and from there click on "column settings".
Then just check or uncheck the columns you want the progress column to consider and your all set :)
- Customize the weights for each status column
After you've picked the status columns to be included in your progress tracking column, you can now also define how much weight each column will hold!
