Option to display # of items with document name

I would like some documents to display the number of bullets beside the name.
This means that I wouldn’t need to open the document to see if there are any items listed. The document names would look like this:

INBOX (4)
Tasks (12)

I understand the use case. It’s not straight-forward how items should be counted in an outliner though.

Do you want number of top-level items or all items?

I prefer to number the top-level items to keep things simple.

I see, thanks so much for the clarification!

This is pretty common place in ecommerce sites (for categories with thousands of items), but I feel like the numbers might be a bit offputting to look at

Example:

I can see this being useful for kanban approaches.

If you did integrate this, it should go with WYISWYG editor and a “promote” case by case scenario.
Because 99% of the time I would rather not look at the numbers but the 1% of the time I will its going to be for inboxing and tasks like an email setup

this could be great…
I use it manually in certain kind of lists…
I update the number of the title whenever I add new bullets…

although an option where we could know the total number of bullets inside wouldnt be bad at all either
