Checkbox Summaries
Hey all,
I am a new smartsheet user using smartsheets to track progress for a rehab project for an apartment complex.
We are checking off each completed task for each unit using checkboxes.
To best track progress, I am trying to find out how to get totals for total number of checkboxes on the spreadsheet and total number checked so I can see how many items are completed out of what needs to be done.
What are your recommendations for this goal?

Hi @Aaliyah
You can use COUNTIF() to count the number of checked items.😉
I could not find a formula that automatically calculates the number of checkboxes in the selected range.
The formula I have in the summary field, checkbox #, is as follows;
=COUNTIF([unit #]:[unit #], NOT(ISBLANK(@cell))) * 3
You can use summary fields value in other summary field formulas by adding # to the summary field's name.
For example, [check / total box]'s formula is as follows;
=[check #]# / [checkbox #]#
To add up the checked items number in a specific checkbox column is as follows;
To add up the checked items number in a specific checkbox column is as follows;
=COUNTIFS([demo bath]:[demo bath], @cell = 1)
Please look at the published sheet in the following URL to check if the formulas are working by checking or unchecking checkboxes. (Note: You need to refresh to get updated %)
