The Percent Complete Field provides a visual way to track the progress of work related to a Table's 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.
Adding a Percent Complete field
Customizing the field
Solution Managers can select Small, Medium, or Large graphical displays, and then select a solid or gradient color.

These selections are important, as the primary purpose of the Percent Complete field is to visualize work status, otherwise, a simple Percent field can be used.
Examples of Use
Project % Complete
The Percent Complete field is often used in project management to provide a visual snapshot of progress and status. The Program Management solution available in the SmartSuite Solution Library includes a Projects table using the Percent Complete field.
Program % Complete
Continuing the above example, Program records link to multiple Projects. We use a Rollup field to calculate the overall % Complete for the Program by averaging the related Percent Complete fields for linked projects.
