Loved the challenge, I'll take any chance I get to brush up on chained apps!

Since this was my first time building a chained app, I took this interactive lesson to help me through.

Here is the main app.

Fun challenge

For some reason, summarising the values from the input at each step of the chain wasn't working on my local machine - so I had to output a few more files to get it working

Also a great bonus from this challenge is going to OPTIONS > EXPORT WORKFLOW to zip up any inputs, outputs, and related workflows as a yxzp. Thanks @AYXAcademy

I see Lego, I click, I'm a simple man. Tried to solve this without chaining apps and using Parameters, but failed miserably

I tried to make use of %temp% directory but found that I couldn't have a chained app reference the files created in the leading application. If anybody knows notation for how I could have accomplished this please let me know (:

The second app would return this error with this input: (directly in the drop-down tool)
