Set and update task progress

Sharing out task progress doesn't have to involve complicated calculations. In Planner, it's simple. Tasks can be:

  • Not started    

  • In progress     In Progress

  • Completed     The completed icon

Sometimes you may need more than simple task progress:

Done with a task?
