Dialog Boxes can have custom title, fixed or automatically generated text as their contents. Dialog boxes are visually emphasized by graphical icons and can be instantly brought to the foreground to grab user attention. Use the Text to Speech Action—Talk in the background feature to makes dialog boxes even more interactive!

The Dialog Boxes category is not limited by dialog windows listed above. Dialog boxes Actions can also stop the Task execution, generate data for other Actions within the same Task and provide other useful options when designing Tasks with user interaction feature.


Every Dialog window supports auto-close behavior, and custom icons—Information, Question, Warning, Error, or None—to further customize your workflows.
