Check out the Introduction to Dashboards article to understand the basics of working with widgets.
The Progress Widget is super simple - yet incredibly powerful. You can sum any numeric or currency field in an app, set a goal, and visually track progress as you work.
Any numeric or currency-based metric can be tracked in the Progress widget. If it's a measurable SMART goal and you have a field in your solution to capture the value, the Progress widget can sum it.
Progress towards a Sales Goal
Number of Leads towards a Marketing Goal
Cumulative Volunteer Hours towards a nonprofit contribution
Configuring the Progress widget is easy. Select the Field to Sum, a color for the bar, and a numeric or currency-based goal.
