Create button automation to add 1 to a numbers column

Hello, what I am looking to create is essentially a tally counter. I need to keep track of the number of email and phone inquiries involved with each individual project.
Is there a tally automation or integration that could do this? I found the “button” automation but didn’t see a way to create this type of formula:
“When button is pushed, +1 to numbers column”

Any tips on creating a tally system of some kind would be great!

Hi @bric ~ Welcome to the Community! :wave:

We don’t have a tally option at this time for either automations or our Formula Column, I’m afraid, so a counter that adds +1 every time a button is pushed won’t be possible at this time.

If it helps, you can see the most recent change was made to an item using The Last Updated Column but for any specific changes and when they were made, you’ll need to check the Item Activity Log .

Otherwise, something you can always try instead would be to use one of our 3rd party platform integrations to build your own automation to count the number of times a specific change has been made in an item:

If you are comfortable coding or have access to any developers, you can also build your own app/automation using our API:

If you need additional support on our APIs or apps platform, I would recommend doing a search for your question in our developer community here. You can also post to the community to get help from other developers.

If you need help building custom integrations, we also have an option for paid assistance through our network of certified partners. If this interests you, simply fill out this form and someone will be in touch shortly!

I hope this helps! Remember to mark as solved if this answers your question :slight_smile:
