Trying to find a way to take percentage complete with checkboxes
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.
Here's more information: Create and Edit Formulas in Smartsheet / Create Efficient Formulas with @cell and @row / COUNTIF Function
