Progress Bar Not Showing

Hi @Liz 

thanks. I was expecting to see the progress bar as percentage (%) or the number of questions left, so the respondant knows how much is left to finish the survey. Is that possible somehow?

Hi @juan-perezbedmar We don’t currently have this feature in our progress bar, but I can share this feedback to our product team for you. 

Thank you @Liz, and yes please, do forward this to your product team. 

I’ve noticed that the Progress bar is shown on top of the screen

but it is, IMHO, too subtle to be noticed. Additionally, for grouped questions, the progress bar is almost unseen as the title of the group overlays the bar.

I know you used to have this feature in the past, I’ve seen it in your documentation here: so it’s a pity (again IMHO) that it is no longer available


thanks again for your support

Hi @juan-perezbedmar Thank you! You are right, as we used to have this feature, but we no longer do. I’ll share this feedback with our product team, though, and also let our Help Center team know that this article is out of date. 

It appears the progress bar is blocked by the “Question Group” headers -- really lame, esp. since my form is entirely chunked into question groups, which makes it completely useless. It’s also really thin and basically unnoticeable even when it’s not blocked.

The typeform progress bar used to be decent, and appeared at the bottom with a percentage indicator too. How do I revert it back to that? And/or when does typeform plan on making the new one usefully visible?


This. It’s ridiculous and makes the progress bar completely useless. Just being able to change the colour would solve this, and be a really simple change for the developers. Please sort it asap!

Thanks for the feedback, @Spark ! We’ll share this with product. 

That is not a progress bar @Liz, you are pointing to the navigation arrows. See below for the example of a progress bar at the top of the form. The black bar. Is it not obvious and does not have a percentage.


Hi @juan-perezbedmar The progress bar can be found in my example shown here: 

I’m also seeing the arrows at the bottom of your form, so it appears to be working. :) 

Let me know if you have any other questions!

This is no progress bar! It means to show how you advance along the questionair. I have the same trouble and it is troublesome..

Hi @Justanothername and @paulkre This is currently what we offer for the progress bar, and you can read more about this here

Of course, if you’re looking for something different, I’m happy to pass this feedback to the product team.

Now I understand why I also couldn’t see the freaking “ progress bar ”!  How weird is it not to have that as a UX feature in a survey?

It almost seems as if its done on purpose to turn people away from the survey and to charge clients up to the Business plan, which is the one that shows where drop off happens. Disappointing for a product we pay $ 600 for on a yearly basis.

Hi @Carosanfran Is there a particular design or change to the feature you would like to see instead?
