Formula on Metrics Sheet all Zeros until I open the sheet


This formula works perfectly fine but for some reason it defaults to 0 until I actually open the metrics page. I use this metric in a dashboard and everyday it changes back to 0 until I open the metrics page. Can someone explain why?

=COUNTIFS({supervisorDOT}, [Primary Column]@row, {completedDOT}, 0)

I even created automation daily where it locks and unlocks rows and updates a date column just in case that was needed like the TODAY() function sometimes needs.
