I am trying to set up a dashboard based on a SharePoint list so it shows the number of items in the list closed (green) number overdue (red) and number not yet due (amber) I have created views of the list to show the 3 cuts of data that would give this but want a simple traffic light to show our position I could do this easily in SP 2013 but understand this had been discontinued for SP 2016 online Any ideas how to achieve now please ?

One way to provide an overview, be it on a single task list or across the site/site collection/tenant could be to create a custom search display template. This template will enable you to use any graphic you like


Here is an example about creating Status KPI list for your reference:

Color Coding Lists in SharePoint 2013, 2016, or Office 365
