# Status and Progress columns weight depth

As a user, I would appreciate a higher degree of granularity/depth between the Status and Progress columns.

I believe it would be a great thing to allow weight distribution by status color/label and have the progress column calculate it’s own weight based on these instead of a 0%/100% limitation just on the done status.

Do you mean something similar to what is explained here?

Or something different?

The idea -if I understood right- is to chose each status color weight.

For example, green is 100%, yellow is 75%, orange is 50%…

So that if you have 2 status columns, not only the weight of the column is calculated (like the new feature), but also the weight of each selected status.

For example, if I have 2 status column :

• 1st column makes up to 40%
• 2nd column makes up to 60%

So when the 1st column is orange and we chose orange weights 50%, the 2nd is red that weights 0%, the progress bar will display : 40%*50% + 0% = 20%

If we can’t chose the weight of each status, it would have displayed 0 or 40%.

I hope my explanation is clear

Interesting feedback and I see how this could be helpful. We’ll pass this along for consideration!

I agree with this! We use a “SHIP” or “WILL CALL” status column. Each one of these contributes to a small percentage of completion status. It would be nice to be able to break it down and set the percentage weight for each one.

My example:
