# Need a Formula for New Hires Starting this Week

Options

Hi! I am building an onboarding dashboard and I need to display a metric for "New Hires Starting this Week". Therefore, I need a formula that returns a count of new hires who have started within the current span of Monday-Friday at any given time. I am trying to display this as a sheet summary field. Is this possible? The relevant field is the Final Start Date column. (formatted as Mon 01/01/2001)

I think I skipped over an issue in my first try, this one should work better:

=COUNTIFS([Final Start Date]:[Final Start Date], ISDATE(@cell), [Final Start Date]:[Final Start Date], WEEKNUMBER(@cell) = WEEKNUMBER(TODAY()))

=COUNTIFS([Final Start Date]:[Final Start Date],">="&CurrentWeekStart, [Final Start Date]:[Final Start Date], "<"&CurrentWeekStart+7)

My first attempt based on research, but I am in a little over my head.

Try this:

=IFERROR(COUNTIFS([Final Start Date]:[Final Start Date], WEEKNUMBER(@cell) = WEEKNUMBER(TODAY())), "")
