What does it do?

Gets the max value based on the cells that matches the criteria

Formula breakdown:

=MAXIFS(max_range, criteria_range1, criteria1, …)

What it means:

=MAXIFS(cells that contains the values, first set of cells to base the filtering on, filtering condition of first set of cells, …)


If you need to get the max value while doing filtering at the same time, the MAXIFS Formula will do this for you in Excel! This was introduced in Excel 2019.

You need to specify on which ones you want to get the MAX value, then specify one or more conditions used for filtering. In our example, we want to get the maximum sales of John!

I explain how you can do this below:
