Actions are set of instructions to be performed when Task is executed either manually or automatically. If the Task is designed to be executed manually, sometimes it suffices to specify an Action without Trigger. When the Task contains multiple Actions, they are performed sequentially.
|Actions||List all Actions associated with the Task.|
|Add||Add new Action to the Task.|
|Edit||Edit parameters of existing Action.|
|Remove||Remove selected Action.|
|Move up||Puts Action higher in the list thus making it start before Actions listed below.|
|Move down||Puts Action lower in the list.|
|Indent left||Takes Action out of its conditional scope.|
|Indent right||Puts Action into the conditional scope.|
|View mode||Allow more space for displaying sequence of Actions.|
|Highlight||Choose to enable or disable related Action highlighting. Select the highlighting color theme:|
Access additional commands such as multi-copy/paste, editing, and Action highlighting settings. Simply right-click to bring up the context menu that provides quick and convenient access to a variety of functions tailored to the current selection.

The multi-copy feature allows you to copy/paste multiple Actions in the same workflow or between different workflows. Simply select Actions you want to copy. Indentation of Actions is preserved during pasting.
Rich keyboard shortcut options are available that mimic commonly used key combinations to quickly and effortlessly select (all, none, invert, etc.) Actions, such as CTRL+A, CTRL+N, and CTRL+I. Additionally, hold the SHIFT key while using mouse or navigation/directional keys (Up, Page Up, Home, Down, Page Down, etc.) to easily select multiple Actions.
Choose from 4 view modes—Compact, Expand, Extend, or Max. To quickly switch between view modes, use keyboard shortcut F11. The View mode settings are automatically applied upon opening the Task properties. The Task Wizard always opens in Compact view mode.
The Maximized view mode dynamically occupies the entire Desktop height (about 95%) and provides the biggest canvas for all your Actions. Effortlessly create huge workflows!
The related Actions highlighting greatly helps in your automated Task creation process. It is very easy to instantly spot the connected Actions while debugging or simply reviewing workflows.
To make workflow changes or when doing maintenance for a Task, and the Task contains 5+ Actions, the auto-highlighting is automatically applied. Different shades are used to distinguish the Actions that use variables from other Actions, and vice versa.
The interconnection highlighting option applies to all workflows. There are two accent colors—Aquamarine emphasizes directly accessed Actions (is using their values), and Pearly highlights successive Actions that are accessing output of the selected Action.
- If the workflow contains some problems such as wrong scope of Else Action, missing If Action or multiple identical labels, the problematic Action is highlighted (in pink).
