How to sum total meeting hours members of a project will have to attend?
I have a Smartsheet that contains the meeting name, the number of hours the meeting will be conducted, and a contact list of the attendees of each meeting for a project. I would like to create a formula that will sum the total meeting hours each member of the project team will be expected to attend.
For example, the formula for the above should result in the following:
Person A = 2.5 hrs
Person B = 3 hrs
Person C = 3 hrs
Person D = 2 hrs
I believe the solution, not sure though, is to use a metric report that lists each person in the project in one column. Then use the SUMIFS formula to provide the total hours of meetings that are calculated from the table above.
In the metrics report I have the names of the team members in one column:
In the next column over I have the formula which uses the name as the target. It seems to calculate zero for all the names listed. I'm wondering if when SUMIFS is calculating the total hours it is not finding the name match in the list even though the name is in the list. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance
