I have a new request that I have to fulfill by Monday. So I have been requested to get the total item count of list items in a share Point list which also has a condition to it, which is Items visible only to the person who created the item.

I also have a drop down which has two columns Available and consumed, I wanna get the total count of list items of which are consumed and which are available in two different columns one for available and one for consumed.

So I need three columns which are:

  • Total Count, Available Count, Consumed Count.

If you guys know how to do this, Please help me out. Thank You.

  • Do you need it in the form using some jquery or in list view ? question is not much clear Commented Apr 20, 2018 at 5:17

No need to create a three column to achieve your goal, Also the Calculated Column and SharePoint Designer does not help in this context!

The simple OOTB workaround is

  • Create one view with the following settings

    • To filter with Created By User

enter image description here

  • To Group By with the Status (Available/Consumed)

enter image description here

  • To get the count for each status and the total count

  • I see that you have provided a very detailed answer and it seems a really easy solution. I just wanted to ask you only on the filter it shows the count for status items right. I also wanted to know the count of total list items if the above condition which is Created by [Me] is applied. Commented Apr 20, 2018 at 10:51
