Hello! I’m Ayesha, a Product Manager here at Airtable. We’re so excited to share a small improvement to let you display your percentages as progress bars.


What are progress bars?

For your fields that are formatted as a Percent, you can choose to display the field as a progress bar. You’ll see the progress bar in all the surfaces where you see that field today, across your bases and interfaces. In forms, you’ll still see just a numeric input.

How do you enable progress bars?

Progress bar formatting is a supported option for the following field types:

  • Editable fields
    • Percent
  • Computed fields with a numeric result (format must be “Percent”)
    • Formula
    • Rollup
    • Lookup (only lookups with 1 number value are shown as a progress bar.)

Enable it with “Display as progress bar” under Formatting.


You can also enable the ability to see the percent values next to the progress bar.

How can you customize the colors?

By default, progress bars are shown in a medium green color. If you’re on a Pro plan or higher, you can customize the color of a progress bar and add in conditional rules. We’ll color the progress bar with the first color that matches.


We’re looking forward to hearing what you think, please let us know if you have any questions.
