Hello,

My team is tracking hours spent on assigned tasks.

We have our SpartSheet set up with:

Parent Row : Date, and Total Hours spent for Child Rows

Child Row: Team Member, and Hours spent

 

I am looking to see if its possible to get how much time each team member is spending in total

    Hi Elie,

    Yes, it's possible!

    Can you describe your process in more detail and maybe share 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])

    Have a fantastic week!

    It is very possible. Could you describe and show some screenshots of how and where you would like the data displayed?

    Hi Elie,

    Try something like this.

    Replace Team Member with the name you want to SUM.

    You can place the formula in the sheet's top for each team member, and you could also reference a specific cell with the team members name to make it easier if you have many team members.

    =SUMIF(CHILDREN([Team Member]1); "Team Member"; CHILDREN([Total Hours]1))

    The same version but with the below changes for your and others convenience.

    =SUMIF(CHILDREN([Team Member]1), "Team Member", CHILDREN([Total Hours]1))

    Depending on your country you’ll need to exchange the comma to a period and the semi-colon to a comma.

    Did it work?

    Best,
