Count "New Entries based on a date" to a dashboard

I am adding new entries to a sheet daily. I need to know on a given date how many entries were added to the sheet. I need to be able to adjust this daily. I have created something on a google doc that works very well but I can't seem to duplicate it in smartsheets. My goal is to have this count reflect on my sheet dashbaord. Please see the google doc example:

I am able to choose a start date and an end date box and when using this formula =COUNTIFS(A:A,">="&Q2,A:A,"<="&R2) it will give me the the count based on the dates.

    Hi,

    Do you want to be able to select the range of dates that should be counted in the sheet?

    Can you describe your process in more detail and maybe share the sheet(s) or some screenshots? That would make it easier to help. (share too, [email protected])

    Have a fantastic week!

    Best,

    Hi Andree,

    We have a spreadsheet that we add to through out the day. We use this sheet to dispatch claim information out to collaborators. I have a column that has the date the claim information was dispatched. I need to know how many claims in a given "Date" were dispatched. I would just countif based on a date but my date range can change daily.

    I would like to create a section on my dashboard metric were I can adjust the date whenever needed and the formula pulls from the cell. 

    =COUNT({TX020719US Field Scheduler Range 4}, COUNTIF({TX020719US Field Scheduler Range 4}, ">=Category35"), COUNTIF({TX020719US Field Scheduler Range 4}, "<=Category37"))

    You could try something along the lines of...

     

    =COUNTIFS({TX020719US Field Scheduler Range 4}, AND(@cell >=Category35, @cell <= Category37))

  • Paul,

    I have tried using this formula but it is returning a 0 count no matter the date I use.

    What column type is Category? If it is not a date type column then it will not work the way it is. The formula would require some tweaking.
