This post will teach you how to use Google Sheets COUNTIFS function with syntax and examples in Google Spreadsheets.
Description
The Google Sheets COUNTIFS function returns the count of cells in a range that meet one or more criteria. It allows to use the criteria with the numeric value or text string, which may be contain the wildcards in textrelated criteria, and also support to use the logical operator to build an expression statement for criteria. You also should know that the COUNTIFS function is not casesensitive.
The COUNTIFS function is a buildin function in Google Sheets and it is categorized as a Math Function.
Syntax
The syntax of the COUNTIFS function is as below:
= COUNTIFS(criteria_range1, criteria1, [criteria_range2, criteria2]…)
Where the COUNTIFS function arguments are:

criteria_range1
–This is a required argument. the first range in which to apply the associated criteria.

criteria1
– This is a required argument. the first critiria to use on criteria_range1

criteria_range2, criteria2
, … Optional. Additional ranges and their associated criteria. Up to 127 range/criteria pairs are allowed.
Note:
 Each range’s criteria is applied one cell at a time. If all of the first cells meet their associated criteria, the count increases by 1. If all of the second cells meet their associated criteria, the count increases by 1 again, and so on until all of the cells are evaluated.
 If the criteria argument is a reference to an empty cell, the COUNTIFS function treats the empty cell as a 0 value.
 You can use the wildcard characters— the question mark (?) and asterisk (*) — in criteria. A question mark matches any single character, and an asterisk matches any sequence of characters. If you want to find an actual question mark or asterisk, type a tilde (~) before the character.
