Total airtable newbie here in need of some help and direction, please! I have two tasks I would like to accomplish
Please find below a screenshot of what my table looks like. I have a drop-down selection field for each year camp has taken place, and can select “camper” “staff” or “canceled” for each year.
Task 1: I would like to have a field that calculates the number of years a person has been in attendance at camp, whether or not they were staff or a camper. So the year tallies would look like this:
Person A Years at camp = 1
Person B Years at camp= 2
Person C Years at camp= 1 (Because they canceled in 05)
What are the steps I need to do this? I think part of doing this airtable wizardry will involve making my year fields linked record fields- do I link all these year fields together and if so, how? Once my fields are set up the way they need to be, how do I create a formula that basically says if year= camper or year=staff, either equals “1” or whatever and then counts those, but doesn’t count blank spaces or if year=canceled?
If I then wanted a field that displayed all the values across the record restated, separated by semicolons or something, in a single field, how would I do that? I phrased that confusingly, but what I’m looking for is a field that would say something like “camp career status” and would look like this:
