I'm looking to count the number of "stars" within a column and have been testing with
=COUNTIF(check_column, "true"). This isn't working. Any ideas?
You'll have to use "1" for true and "0" for false.
Did it work?
Have a fantastic week!

Feel free to contact me about help with Smartsheet, integrations, general workflow advice, or something else entirely.
You will also need square brackets [ ] around your column name.
I think you also need to complete the column range, right?
Thank you everyone. Counting "stars" did not work.
I've changed the column data type to numbers.
Great support reactions here!!!
Happy to help!
If you still want to use stars instead.
=COUNTIF([Star Column]:[Star Column]; 1)
The same version but with the below changes for your and others convenience.
=COUNTIF([Star Column]:[Star Column], 1)
Depending on your country you’ll need to exchange the comma to a period and the semi-colon to a comma.
I tried all possible trial and error, finally got my desired outcome with below. It counted exactly the number of stars in each of the columns in the range I provided.
((COUNTIF(Development1:Collaboration1, ="five") * 5) + (COUNTIF(Development1:Collaboration1, ="four") * 4) + (COUNTIF(Development1:Collaboration1, ="three") * 3) + (COUNTIF(Development1:Collaboration1, ="two") * 2) + (COUNTIF(Development1:Collaboration1, ="one") * 1))
I hope you're well and safe!
Can you describe your process in more detail and maybe share the sheet(s)/copies of the sheet(s) or some screenshots? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help. (share too, [email protected])
I hope that helps!
Be safe and have a fantastic week!
