Convert TEXT to % for projects

Options

I would like to make a formula for calculating percentages based on the progress of the task as we contract projects.


When you set the option "completed" the formula passes the value of 100%.


When "in progress" the formula goes to 10%


When status is "stopped" the formula goes to 0%


COMPLETED = 100%

PROGRESS = 10%

STOP = 10%

    Hi,

    Try something like this.

    (remember to format the column showing the percentage with the Percentage Format)

    =IF(Status@row = "COMPLETED"; 1; IF(Status@row = "PROGRESS"; 0,1; IF(Status@row = "STOP"; 0; "")))
    

    The same version but with the below changes for your and others convenience.

    =IF(Status@row = "COMPLETED", 1, IF(Status@row = "PROGRESS", 0.1, IF(Status@row = "STOP", 0, "")))
    

    Depending on your country you’ll need to exchange the comma to a period and the semi-colon to a comma.

    Did it work?

    I hope that helps!

    Have a fantastic day and let me know if you have any questions!

    Best,
