Tracking task percentage progress

I would like that as a project administrator, be able to track task progress by inputting percentages. As an example, I would like that a newly created task will start with a 0% complete and eventually will be updated manually to higher percentage as progress to the task is done (not vis-a-vis the work effort logged as this will not be used).

Reports of tasks progress will then be issued on the basis of this percentage progress fuield.

Can this be done?

For a crude workaround, you could create a custom field called "Percentage completed" and get team members to manually enter the percetnage completed for a task. From there, you can export a number of issues to a CSV file, using JIRA's filters, and then use a few spreadsheet functions to get the report you like. Otherwise, you could use an add-on like eazyBI to get the reports generated in JIRA itself. The caveat to this approach is it won't store historical data. I hope that helps.
