Rename output field of Count Records tool

I usually have some checks of my workflows. The simplest are row counts at varying points. I use Count Records tools, rename the outputs using a Select tool, Union them, and use a Message tool to calculate and show Deltas. I want to have the ability to control the output field name of the Count Records tool the same way I can control the output field name of a Record ID tool.

Why not just add a Select Tool to rename the field after the Record Count.

Sorry, I wrote in my original post above that I already use a Select tool.


The RecordID tool allows the field to be renamed without the addition of a Select tool. Why not the Count tool?
