CMS: Adding and Setting Up a Progress Bar

6 min read
Add a progress bar to show a visual representation of progress toward achieving a goal. You can use Velo coding or a CMS collection field to represent the progress value. For the target value, you can set a static value that doesn't change, or set a dynamic value with Velo or by connecting a collection field.   
Examples of using progress bars:
  • Show how many tasks are marked as 'done' on a to-do list.
  • Show the percentage of steps completed during an onboarding process. 
  • Show the amount of money raised towards a fundraising goal.
  • Show the number of people who have signed a petition that needs a certain number of votes.
You can use Velo to update the progress bar's value without connecting to the CMS. To learn how, see Working with the Progress Bar Element.
Before you begin:
Add the CMS to your site and create a collection that includes a number field type for your progress value.
