How can I count the amount of actions in one specific month?


I'm trying to set up a counter for a number of actions in the month of may, for example if I have 5 actions this month (May), I want the counter to return "5". I've been trying to use the formula below but all I get in return is a zero:

=COUNTIFS([Target Due Date]:[Target Due Date], IFERROR(MONTH([Target Due Date]1), 0) = 5)

    You would need to use an @cell reference inside of the MONTH function. Right now you only have the MONTH function looking at a single cell instead of the entire range.

    =COUNTIFS([Target Due Date]:[Target Due Date], IFERROR(MONTH(@cell), 0) = 5)
