COUNTIF Formula for Contact Column

I have several tasks set up for team members using their email addresses in the Contact column. Some tasks have 1 member assigned and some have multiple. I have to run each person's workload and am trying to use a separate sheet that counts the number of times their email address is in the Contact column. However, the COUNTIF formula only counts them if there is only 1 person assigned in the Contact column. If there is more than 1 email address, the formula counts it as "0", even if their email address is in the cell. The goal is to have the workload calculate in "real time" in this sheet, using the COUNTIF formula, and be linked to the master sheet where the source data is located.


I've already submitted a product enhancement request, but need a workaround in the interim! Any ideas would be appreciated.
