How to count total number of times a value appears in cells with multiple values.
I have been trying to find a formula to use that will let me count the total number of times a day appears in this column. I would like to ultimately put this info into a graph on the dashboard. Is there a way to do this? I have tried using the COUNTIF with CONTAIN and I haven't been able to figure it out while on a multicolumn.
Thank you in advance!
I have been using a normal COUNTIF formula but it only counts the cells that ONLY have monday and none of the cells that have monday plus another option.
I have recently tried: =COUNTIFS([Weekday Availability Times (Preferred)]:[[Weekday Availability Times (Preferred)], FIND("Monday",@cell)>0)
I found this in another discussion that seemed like a similar issue. This did not work either. What am I messing up here?

Try this:
=COUNTIFS([Weekday Availability Times (Preferred)]:[Weekday Availability Times (Preferred)], HAS(@cell, "Monday"))
