Imagine the user interface of a sales commission management system.
You have clearly labeled Goal showing the amount in sales the sales representative has to sell in order to reach it.
Then there is another field that displays how much the sales representative has sold already. Let's say this field is labelled Status. It could also be labelled Sales Closed.
Finally, there is a field showing the percentage of the Goal that the sales representative has achieved (basically, the value of the Status field divided by the value of the Goal field).
The question is, how should this field be labelled?
Options that have already been considered:
- Progress: looks weird when the user has already surpassed their goal (e.g. Progress: 120%).
- Percentage: feels like it's missing context (i.e. "percentage of what?").
Ideally, it should be a single word or a couple of words, like Sales Closed.
