How can we improve Checkvist?

Progress bar instead of counter

Checkvist used to have a progress bar, which I'd very much prefer to the current counter visualization. Any chance to have an option to choose bar or counter?

    Yes, I use the PC inside lists too, and have the same thoughts actually about inside lists, I'd prefer having a bar instead of a counter.

    Thanks, got it. We'll think of alternative solutions when we start the All lists page redesign, promise :)

    One more question - do you use Progress counter inside lists? You have to press 'pc' on a branch to track the progress. Also works for the whole lists, can be used with time estimation.. in case you didn't try it before - https://checkvist.com/auth/help#show_progress_counter

    And if you use it, does this UI solution work for you _in_ the list?

    Best,
    Sasha

    Thanks, the bars are a preference for me because I find them easier for visual comparison. It's also some aesthetics too, I think bars look better. The counter is not as good-looking as the bars. Also, I'm used to Gantt charts and bars remind me of that.

    Hello,
    I assume you're talking about the All lists page (as we didn't have any progress counters in the lists before the current counter).

    Right now we are using the same solution for both cases, as it's easier and simpler. On the other hand, we are planning to re-work the All lists page, and progress bar/counter can also get a new design.

    The only thing is we'd like to better understand what's wrong with the current counter. Simply aesthetical reasons? Or are the bars better because you are used to visually compare them?

    Any explanation of your usage scenario and reasons would be very helpful!
