Gamify progress with Notion's new Status property

In my new goal tracking template (with projects and tasks databases, I may release a free public template soon) I've found the new Status property a welcome addition. 

What I'm even more delighted about, is having a completion number to check my progress that takes very little setup, through the new Status property. 

Let me show you what I mean and how to set it up.

In this example, I show 4 tasks completed, out of 11 in total that are in Not Started and In Progress status in my Tasks database

In this example, I show in my Projects database how many tasks completed for each project individually. I did the same for Goals and their projects (and I suppose you can even setup a subtasks database and do the same for your tasks if you want to take it that far)

Both of these options are very simple to setup:

  1. Have a 2-way relation between your Tasks and Projects database and connect your tasks with their project (In my case this was already done)

  2. Create a rollup that relates to the Task database, and select "status" as the property, then Calculate "Count per group -> Complete" 

  3. If you want to display some text with it, like in my achievements screenshot above, create a "concat" formula like so: concat("you have completed ", prop("completed tasks"), " tasks") where prop("property name here") is the Rollup property of your Completed tasks calculation.

As someone with ADD, visualizing my progress gives me a daily drive to do better and keep going. How about you?
