Progress bar from current date to a set end date?

Hey everyone!

I’m trying to have a progress bar visually show people until the end of a set start date and end date, I thought it would be as simple as setting the Max Value to the end date and the Progress Value to the current day, but it doesn’t seem to be working? When I view the bar within the app, it fills all the way to the end automatically. I also ensured that the set end date was in the future.

Any help or advice is appreciated, thanks!

Hi @Briggsy,

The Progress Bar works in a way that it displays progress between 0 (start) and Max Value (end).
DateTime(s) in Adalo, when converted to numeric values, become a number like 18544.75, where integer part (18544) is the number of days since 01/01/1970, and .75 is a part of the day.

So as you may have guessed your progress bar is always “full”, because you’re showing the progress between 0 and smth like 18880 (this is 10th of Sep), and the progress is 18871 (1st of Sep).

So you can try to deduct Start Date from both values (just do that in the fields) and see if it works correctly after that.

Best regards, Victor.
