  2. Create a new Attribute "My calculated attribute" of Data Type "Calculated" and with Image (Color) and Range defined.
  3. Go to Administration > Object > Project > Views and add the attribute to the Project Properties > Layout Edit view.
  4. Go back to Administration > Object > Project > Views > Project Properties > Fields, and look for "My calculated attribute". Click on its properties icon.
