Frequency Reports from Multi-Select Picklists

Operational Reporting

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.

    Hi all - we're still tracking this idea, which would take multiple release to work on. We have instead been focusing on other report and dashboard features, including the ones you've helped us prioritize like row level formulas and field to field filtering. We'll continue to consider this as we evolve our roadmap.
