Progress Bar

Measure your progress on issues with the custom field Progress Bar. This custom field is perfect for project managers and team leads who overlook issue progress. Instead of going into issue details, progress is shown as a filled-in line.

The progress bar is available as a custom field type. Progress bar colours defined in the app configuration are default values and used if there are no other configuration scheme contexts created.
