How to get a way to make a Progress bar

Hi everyone,


I am working on a proof of concept and the client would like to have a progress bar that shows the completion of a task.


Do you guys have a way to make it ?


Kind regards,

If you are looking for a specific progress bar style, you could also create it in Excel and then copy paste to Power BI and make it dynamic. This video explains how it's done:

I just used regular old stacked bar chart with 2 values, one the percent complete (blue portion) and the other a measure which is 1 minus the percent complete (the grey portion).  I chose the grey color as the font for the data labels as well so only the portion completed is visible. It works and is free. Here's screen snip of it next to a table.



How did you show the percentage inside the bar? Could you please share the pbix file

pbix file has a lot of data that would take too long to sanitize and/or make shareable. I am creating some screen shots here.

 Used stacked bar chart with 2 fields on X-axis, Percent Complete (a calculated column called DecPercentComplete and Percent Uncomplete ( a measure called PercentUncomplete). Screen shots are shown for each. The calulcated column was required as the data comes in with the percent complete as a whole number. I also am showing the formatting, the percent complete blue and uncomplete grey. The values are all grey so that the percent complete shows up with a value and you don't see the value for uncomplete since it is same color as the bar itself. visual1.PNGCalcColumnPercentComplete(decimal).PNGmeasurePercentUncomplete.PNG
