I would like to share with you the following cool method of adding a progress property to your objects:
- Set a new property with type “Status” and rename it to Progress or whatever you like
- Add the following as options (copy and paste):
- Set their color to what you prefer
I used to make it just like this one with square emojis but I found it to be too big compared to the text one
And unfortunately those emojis lack the nice light blue color
I don’t understand the use case for this. Why would you be manually setting the percent completed for an object? You’re essentially just guessing a rough estimate, which defeats the point of a numerical percent.
Long-term I’d like to see Anytype be able to automatically calculate the percent based on how many items are checked off in an object or something like that.
Its purpose is to show an overall state of tasks whether they need more attention to be finished or they are mid-way or even almost completed.
It’s actually a workaround until there’s an official way of doing it.
I use the smaller shape emojis. But yeah, the colors aren’t all desirable and I hate that it translates differently in desktop. (Android to Microsoft) I think I will try this one.
Emojis are bad, they don’t get re-colored according to your preferred one unlike the text based symbols.
