Just a few hours ago, Greg Pierce announced an update to his Tally app. The new 1.1 version includes support for x-callback-url specification. It allows you to increment or decrement your named counters inside the app.
If you're a person who loves statistics and analytics, you might want to integrate Tally into your workflows. In this post, I will show examples where I use Tally to keep track of the number of times I trigger my Send to Pastebot action and my Logged Google Search action. Both of them are custom URL Actions in Drafts, and I use them multiple times throughout the day.
It is pretty straightforward to integrate Tally into your workflow. First, you need to create the appropriate named counters in Tally. Then, simply create a new workflow where Tally is the first action to call, prior calling your previous non-Tallied workflows.
Because Tally is just an optional addition to your existing workflows, I'd suggest you use the x-error parameter properly. By setting the x-error parameter to the existing workflow, you can ensure that you can continue your workflow even when the Tally named counter you're trying to access got accidentally deleted.
