Define Automation Process Visual Workflow Actions
Use the Actions section of the Automation Process Visual Workflow Process Designer to define one or more Actions, which occur as a result of a time or event trigger.
Good to know:
- If you want more than one Action to take place, drag additional Actions onto the Designer Board and organize them as desired. You can change the behavior of an Action in the Current Step Details pane below the Designer Board. Alternatively, you can double-click the Action to view an associated Manager or editor for the Action (example: One-Step™ Action Manager).
- When you drag a Jump Step onto the Designer Board, the Jump icon displays on steps that allow the Action.
