Count Clicks on a Tab or Share Button

Just testing and setting it up now. Will be pushing it out to users next week.

I’m sorry if I got it wrong, but I think you can create an action on the share button including the increment function in a new field to receive these “increments” and finally the share function will open and you will have the number of clicks on the share button .

The only drawback for this is the user clicks the button but ultimately opt to not share the app.

I tried this and technically it works but the “share” icon disappears when the compound action is used. I don’t like this user experience as the familiar sharing icon makes it much clearer.

Hi @kabookie i usually face this issue when i create a compound action, to workaround it i create my own buttons using this free website https://www.clickminded.com/button-generator/ or photoshop it and assign the compound action to it.

So you are basically creating a clickable image that looks like the button you want and takes action - this is a good solution and thanks for the tip for button factory, I am not familiar with that site.

yes, its really a image with an action, you can take it one step further if you are good with photoshop to give the button a click animation. Basically make a copy of your button and washout the colors to ghost it (showing it has been clicked) then use increment and visibility to make one button disappear and other appear.

my other method for sharing is using the new floating button feature like this

assign whatever action you want to it and users easily identify its a share button.

I love that button, but for this app am using it as a “Call me” button - the main function of this app is for lead gen so it works great for that. Sharing is secondary :wink:

I use Canva for most everything - they do have an animate feature that works well - might be fun to play with it for this button

+1 for this. I usually use Canva for custom button designs.

Great work, Canva is super helpful.

Just another Idea i use, i have a image template with button dimensions and change icon as required (copy, share etc) and then use the ‘Tag’ field to fill in my text manually or set from table.

Button template here, incase anyone would like to customize and use it:

So do I! Actually all my designs are made there & LunaPic to remove background/crop/resize and so on

Edit: I prefer LunaPic instead of RemoveBg because LunaPic keeps the original image size to remove bg

You’re welcome! It’s an amazing tool

I have a button that’s visible only when our map is NOT visible (I switch it on & off in a different app). The button is just a placeholder. The button that is shows when the map is visible replaces this one. THAT button opens a webview of our map.

The button HAD no action attached to it, but I just knew people would push it anyway. I added a couple actions to it, one will add 1 to an increment column called “How many people pushed this button”. It also shows a notification that says “Your action has been reported to the Admin team”.

The 29th was the first day of snow for us. That button got pushed 295 times before we activated the map.

Has anyone been able to figure out a way to add a record to a user’s sheet when that user clicks on a tab?
