Creating Progress Bars in Notion

I’ve become a big fan of what Notion has to offer from both a productivity and process tool standpoint. One of the things I wanted to have available were progress bars: graphical indicators of the status of work on the page. After a little tinkering starting with some suggestions I found on Notion VIP, this is what I came up with.

As you can see it’s not exceptionally complex but it’s also not just something you click a box and it happens. Progress bars work best when they’re sharing information that helps you move your work in the right directions. When they’re just status indicators, why visually appealing, they aren’t going to make an impact in the long run.
