This issue is driving me batty right now because it almost invalidates the purpose of the automation I've spent a week creating (via GlobiFlow). I can roll up all kinds of data into counts, but I can't attach progress to task number and completion.
Here's a collection of other user requests dating back to 2013:
I'm assuming the issue is that Tasks exist outside the area of customized fields. They are standard items in Podio, can be attached to anything (which is amazing), and thus not open to the same level of customization as the things I create. Ideally, I would be able to use a setting on the Progress field to make this happen so that I don't have to build anything. Setting would be called 'Link to Task Completion' and, when enabled, the progress bar would lock into status based on the associated number of tasks and how many have been completed. Adding more or removing some would adjust the bars overall value.
I know that we can use another App to make this work, but considering the power of the existing Task functionality that really seems like a bad solution. We already have to build a separate Contacts app to create universal contact reference points.
Thanks for any feedback on this in advance. I'm adding a ticket at GlobiFlow as well.
