Hi all,

I'm trying to use data from another sheet to get a count. I have 2 relevant columns in the reference sheet, Name and Date. I'm trying to count the number of dates for a given name in the last 30 days.

Here's the formula I'm trying to use:

=COUNTIF({Hiring Actuals Range 1}, ="Smith, John", {Hiring Actuals Range 2}, >TODAY(-30)))

I'm getting an #UNPARSEABLE error. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks!

    Hey @LeeR , welcome to the community!

    You're so close! You just need to change the Function from "COUNTIF" to "COUNTIFS".

    You can see a list of Smartsheet's functions here: Smartsheet Functions List. I'd recommend bookmarking this page!
