Flow Actions Overview

Flow actions are divided into 10 categories within the flow designer:

  1. Common Flow Actions

  4. Flow Output Actions
  5. Flow Knowledge Actions
  6. Flow AI Actions
  7. Flow Analytics Actions

Each action comes with a number of useful features as icons in the main title bar:

  • Rename: Simply click on the flow action title and overtype it if you'd like to change its name.
  • Copy: Ability to copy a flow action and paste it somewhere else.
  • Favorite: Mark the flow action as a favorite, making it easier to find in the future. All favorites are listed in the flow properties window.
  • Comment: Add comments relevant to the flow action, for any important information you don't want to forget.
  • Help: Useful information specific to the flow action, always a good starting point to learn more!
  • Delete: Remove the flow action.
  • Close: Close the flow action editor panel.

These features are also available by clicking on the three dots icon to the left of the title, just in case you're having trouble finding the desired icon.
