Progress bar (or circle) for long-running microflow
I would love to give my users more feedback on how long a long-running microflow will take. The various progress bars (and circle!) in the app store looked perfect for this because I could show the percentage complete. Unfortunately, after trying for hours with almost all of the options in the app store, I was unable to use them to show the percentage. I assume this is because microflows run in transactions and only commit at the end. How can I give my users a microflow’s percentage done that updates periodically? If the progress bar apps in the app store aren’t for doing that what use case were they created for? Thank you!
The name ‘progress bar’ is misleading since it is not showing the progress that the proces at hand is making. It only shows that it is busy.

I did a widget to make this work, it was all happyness in Mendix 6, but with introduction of the stateless client it does not work any long. I did not find any work around to make this function work again.
