Timeline or Duration shown visually as a field?

Hello,

I have a field that I've used as a multiple choice text with several stages for a project. I want to see this as a visual line to see completion. (Really bad example attached as a picture) I'd like to see a bar that moves along the stages and can be used to identify how close a project is to completion. 

To clarify, I don't want to run this as a timeline report, I tried that but it catalogs ALL projects instead of being able to show the information based on the record I'm in. 

Can anyone help me with generating something like this?

  • Are you tracking the amount of time that a project is in each phase currently? There are ways to do what you're doing - but you'll need to make sure you have a date or date/time that tracks when the project enters/exits each phase. Can you confirm?

      I'm guessing the person is looking for a status bar like Salesforce can fo (rather than a bar that shows a dynamic distance based on how long the record was in that phase). And even if that wasn't the original ask, now I'm curious if that's possible?

        Yes - a status bar or ribbon is doable in Quickbase through Rich-Text formulas. Here is an example: 

        With rich-text formulas you can build out HTML rendering of a status bar as it progresses through various phases. The Quickbase Exchange has a handful of samples that you can pull for similar use cases as a starting point.
