Visual Indicator Column

Easy to set up – map associate column with a choice or percentage column, your color settings, and any data in the associated column.

Overview of Features

Visual Indicator Column gives you the ability to display incremental progress or any other status in the form of a color-coded bar or a percentage-based progress bar. Visual Indicator Columns support floating tooltip information, custom color sets, and display percentage information in both visual and numeric form, enabling you to quickly scan through lengthy SharePoint lists at a glance, while still retaining access to individual list item data.

Visual Indicator Columns are easy to set up — simply associate one with a choice or percentage column, configure your color settings, and the data in the associated column will be mapped to the Visual Indicator Column.
