The progress tracking column allows you to combine all the status columns of each pulse into one, beautiful battery-like view. This column is a must to keep 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 "column center".
Once in the center, select the option "Progress Tracking" as in the screenshot below:
How does it work?
Once your column added, you progress bar will show you the progress of your tasks based on the different status columns of your board. The percentage in each pulse 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 last percentage at the bottom 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 turn everything in "done", the progress bar of your pulse will show you 100%.
But what about my other status columns?
Sometimes we use status columns for reasons that are not only "progress tracking" (our famous "priority column" for an example) and we want to be able to use them as well without forcing the Progress tracking column to consider them.
In this case, you can easily hover 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 :)
