How to count number of times names appear in a sharepoint list

Hi all,


New to PowerApps and Microsoft Flow so any help here could be appreciated.


I have List A which contains all sales including Employee Name and Income per sale. I want to create a "leaderboard" of sorts using this information via Flow that goes to List B and displays each salesperson's (we only have 25, so I can enter them manually) total units sold (only one unit is ever sold at one time) and total Income. I have attached a screenshot of my current attempt, but the expression


seems to only count one time and fails to iterate. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi @e_jones


Sounds interesting.


How many list items in these lists?


Are you planning to display the leaderboard in PowerApps or Power BI?


If you use PowerApps, you might not need the Flow run to collate the data.


Kind regards

Re: How to count number of times names appear in a sharepoint list

Hi there,


I plan on making one list per calendar year, so at the end of the year List A might have ~1500 items. List B (the leaderboard) will only show employees' names, and we have around 25 employees that should show on the leaderboard. Ideally I'd have the leaderboard show as a sharepoint list and just customize views for each month (i.e. January shows data for January, etc.). This might not be possible, though. Here's a picture of what the ideal output would be in List B:




I think right now I'm just having trouble filtering the query, as with every Flow run the "Policies Written" value does not increment.
