Automation Actions

Action is a constituent part of a Task directly responsible for (a part of) the job done. No matter whether the Task is executed manually or automatically, it always proceeds with performing the operations specified in its Actions. Actions can perform all kinds of file operations, send emails, run external applications, extract zip files, etc. Task can contain multiple Actions that can talk to each other using Variable Wizard.

Free automation actions

Every Action not only performs operations specified in its settings, but also can retain data on the context of its execution. The subsequent Actions within the same Task can base their operations already upon the data retrieved some preceding Action (or Trigger responsible for automatic Task execution).

The dynamic data exchange between Actions and Actions is made possible by Variable Wizard. Many inputs of Actions support dynamic data (variables) as their configuration parameters.

Sequential steps based on simple Actions that communicate among themselves can render advanced and flexible results in multitude of complex environments.
