Countifs + Contains/Find + Multiple Criteria


I have a column that is a multi-select with contact options and I'm trying to create a formula that Counts the amount of times a person's name shows up in that column AND also matches the entity name selected in another column (single select).

I have two separate formulas but I can't seem to combine them the right way... help?

=COUNTIFS({Recruiter}, (FIND("Jane Doe", @cell) > 0), {Division}, "Entity Name")

=COUNTIFS({Recruiter}, "Jane Doe", {Division}, "Entity Name")

    So you're actually super close, I believe the issue is that you need to use the CONTAINS() function instead of FIND() in the first formula you listed above:

    =COUNTIFS({Recruiter}, CONTAINS("Jane Doe", @cell), {Division}, "Entity Name")

    Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions.
