Triggering an Immediate Action
This article outlines how to work with Actions that have immediate timing.
Immediate Action screen overview
Actions are triggered during Sessions. If an Action has the timing set to immediate, then as soon as you encounter the Section then you will see a popover appear on the bottom right of your screen.
An Action that is triggered immediately can be sent right then, or you can hide the panel and work with it later. If the Action is never handled before the last Section, then it's added to the Action Review screen.
Changing an Action before sending it
Before you send an Action, you can change its details, similar to on the Actions Review Screen. To view and change the details, select the View Details button.
This will open a larger panel with all of the editable details for the Action.
Once you're happy with the details, go ahead and select Send to fire the Action.
Hiding and showing the Actions
When immediate Actions are triggered they are visible on the screen, but if you want to hide the Action popovers and handle it later, you can select the Hide button.
Once selected, the lightning button will appear with a number to indicate the amount of immediate Actions that are hidden.
You can select the lightning button to show all of the hidden immediate Actions.
Remove an Action
You can select the trash icon on the Action popover to remove it. Removing an Action will delete it from the Session.
