Frequency Reports from Multi-Select Picklists

Reports & Dashboards

Multi-select picklists allow more than one value to be selected by the user, and the total number of possible combinations increases rapidly with each additional value available in the picklist.

If you create a report that summarises data by the content of a multi-select picklist, Salesforce will report on each combination of picklist values in turn. This is no doubt useful in some contexts, but it would also be helpful to have a simple frequency report that merely counts the number of times each picklist value was selected.

    @Roger Chang. There is no change for this idea. We are focusing on enhancing our Reports and Dashboards in Lightning experience. We are working on some other ideas in Lightning such as Subfolders and Field to Field filtering.

    This idea is on our roadmap and still 3+ releases away. Thank you.
