COUNTIFS formula not working


I'm trying to write a formula for my metrics summary sheet that will count the number of assignments each designer has, if that project is currently in progress.

I have a formula that works to gather the total # of assignments for each designer:

=COUNTIFS({Tasks per users}, HAS(@cell, [Primary Column]@row))

But when I try to add the additional criteria (example below) it gives me an Incorrect Argument error.

=COUNTIFS({Tasks per users}, HAS(@cell, [Primary Column]@row), {Project Status}, "In Progress")

    Hi @krystrist

    I don't think you need the "HAS @cell" part. Maybe try the below and see what happens but its probably wrong without seeing the column headers. Hopefully this helps though.

    =COUNTIFS(Primary Column,[Primary Column]@row), {Project Status}, "In Progress")

    Have a good day.
