This best way I imagine this being achieve is to have a separate table for names and link the names when needed, instead of using a multi-select field. You would be able to set count fields in each table. This method would easily allow you to have a count for each name, as well as count each name.
Thank you VERY much for the advice. I’m a complete Newbie to Airtable. Can you elborate on what you mean by a separate table for name and linking the names? Is there specific language I need to use to research help articles on this?
