% Parent Boxes checked
Hello,
I need some help in creating a formula to calculate the % of parent boxes checked see attachment. In this case I expect the answer to be 25% as only one of the 4 parent boxes is checked.
Any help would be appreciated

There may be another way to do this but the way I know is to set up two helper columns. One helper that is checked if the row is a parent row. Another helper with a COUNTIF formula to count the # of parent rows.
Example sheet:
Parent Count formula:
=COUNTIF([Is Parent?]:[Is Parent?], =true)
% Parent Done formula:
=COUNTIF(Done:Done, =true) / [Parent Count]@row
You can hide the "Is Parent?" and "Parent Count" columns after setup but you'll need to manually check the boxes in the "Is Parent?" column.
