[SOLVED]How to count the amount of children of a parent?

edited 12/09/19 in Archived 2016 Posts

Greetings, and thank you in advance for helping a beginner at Smartsheet out.


so thanks to the formel ="<PARENTNAME> [" + (COUNT(CHILDREN())) + "]" I managed to count the amount of children a parent has in the parent row.


However now I would like to use that number(the amount of children) in a summary, but I just don't seem to be able to make the formel I want to use work.


To me something like this would make sense, but it does not work:



I am going to be using the formel to count the amount of Task/Problems(the child) of a certain priority(The parent) there are for a summary.
