Overview

The Percent Complete Field provides a visual way to track the progress of work related to an app record. Percent Complete fields are updated manually in records where they're used. The corresponding % percent value can be used in Rollup fields and calculations in Formula fields just like a traditional Percent field.


Display Formats & Options
