Summary Sheet formula to count status by assigned person

Hi All,

This should be a basic formula but I cannot seem to make this work for me and I am hoping that someone in the community can help me pinpoint where I am going wrong?

I entered this in the sheet summary field - =COUNTIFS({Range - Standard Author}; StandardAuthor@row; {Range - Status}; "In Progress") noting the assigned person is in the standard author field (single contact field) as seen below.

Thanks for your help

    Hi @EliseB

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Try something like this. (you can't use an @row reference in a Sheet Summary field, so I selected a random cell in the range with a contact, so you'd have to update it for each contact if you want it in the Sheet Summary section)

    =COUNTIFS([Standard Author]:[Standard Author], [Standard Author]7, Status:Status, "IN Progress")

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic week!
