# Trying to find a way to take percentage complete with checkboxes

Options

I am trying to find a way to have a percentage completely column. I want it to calculate the amount of check boxes that are checked as complete. In the outlined cell, I want to basically calculate the following ---> Total amount of checkboxes (12) - total unmarked boxes(9)/Total amount of checkboxes (12)= % of checked boxes

Is this possible? I am new with smartsheets :/ Thanks in advance for any feedback!

Yes! You can use a formula to count how many Checkboxes there are across your row:

=COUNTIF([Column 1]@row:[Column 12]@row, 1)

The first thing in the COUNTIF function is the range - from the first column in your sheet (Column 1) in this row (@row) to the last column of checkboxes (Column 12) in this row (@row).

Then we look for a specific criteria, that the box is checked, or 1.

Now that we have this count, we can divide it by 12!

=COUNTIF([Column 1]@row:[Column 12]@row, 1) / 12

This will give you a decimal value that you can convert into a percent using the Percent format in the toolbar.
