Counting by date



I have a sheet that counts sick calls for our colleagues. Currently I am utilizing a basic formula to count the number for said person, =COUNTIFS({WMS Name}, =[WMS ID]@row, {Absent Type}, ="SICK")

This works for the initial- total count. But once they have surpassed the first threshold (5) a meeting will be held, and a completion date will be entered into the corresponding column. Can this same column reset its count based on that date. Or, is there a formula that I can enter into "SICK calls since 1st meeting" that counts in that column after a date has been entered into the "1st meeting date" column

...and so on and so forth. I hope this makes sense,

    Hi @Jessica Howell

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Yes, you could modify the formula you're using to reference the date and then count from that date.

    Can you describe your process in more detail and maybe share the sheet(s)/copies of the sheet(s) or some screenshots of the other sheet? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help. (share too,

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!
