Formula for "Allow Multiple Contacts per Cell"
I have been tasked with creating a dashboard with some metrics on it. Below is an example of what I am looking to have created.
On one of my smartsheet columns is an "Assigned to" section. There are 3 people in that list.
Bob, Jan, and Jill.
Bob has 1 row assigned to him.
Jan has 1 row assigned to her.
Jill has 1 row assigned to her.
This is the formula I used to show me how many rows are assigned to each person. =COUNTIF({Test example range 1}, [Primary Column]@row).
The formula does the calculation and everyone has 1. Perfect.
The problem is there is a 4th row. On the 4th row, it is assigned to Bob, Jan, AND Jill.
So, my goal is to find a formula that would show that they each have 2 rows assigned to them, not 1.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello @WesMcNally
Multiselect columns need the functions HAS, CONTAINS or FIND. Try this
=COUNTIFS({Test example range 1}, HAS(@cell,[Primary Column]@row))
Does this work for you?
