Actions enable you to edit or update information, add information, remove information, export data from the application, and print the required data in the preferred format. There are system actions that are available in the application. There are also scripted actions items that cater to unique requirements specific to your report.

There are actions that are applicable to the records in the the quick view. You can perform an action to a record on making the gesture that allows you to use the actions. Let's assume that you have an Project Management application in which you have an Status tracking report with the projects are categorised under different status: Yet to start, In Progress, Reviewed, and Completed. In that report, you have to change the status of a few records. Tap on the edit icon. Change the status of the record. Select apply. The change will reflect in your report.

The following are the predefined actions that are displayed in the application:

View a record

This action enables you to view a chosen record. It appears at the event of the predefined gesture. Selecting View record displays the detail view to the user.

Edit record

In quick view, editing allows you to edit a single record or multiple records. The action appears at the event of the predefined gesture. Selecting edit displays the edit screen wherein you can make the changes to the field values. On the other hand, you can also select multiple records, at the event of which, the edit screen enables you to change field values in bulk.

Delete record

In quick view, deleting allows you to delete a single record or multiple records. The action appears at the event of the predefined gesture. Selecting delete removes values. On the other hand, you can also select multiple records, and delete the records.

On the other hand, you can also select multiple records, at the event of which you make copies in bulk.

Action item

Action item could be defined as an alternative to the exiting system actions, which include edit, delete, duplicate, and view record. Zoho Creator enables you to interact with your report using these actions. But when you are faced with a peculiar scenario that needs an action that has a logic that differs from the existing supply of actions, the predefined action item provides you with a solution.

Adding an action item requires you to create a workflow that defines the principle and logic that composes that intended action. This action is made as a menu along with the other system actions. Selecting this menu takes effect on the report or record, applying the logic that you have already configured. Based on this logic, the exclusive action is executed giving you the required result.

Let's assume, you have a Project Management application that has employee related information. The application includes a task management report that compartmentalizes the tasks based on the level of completion. Let's say there is action item called Clear Completed Tasks in the report. The predefined menu item encapsulates a workflow that removes all the completed tasks from the report with a click of the button.

The following are the events at which the predefined actions are displayed:

Action on a single record

Selecting the edit action will display the respective form with the existing data. You can make the correction and submit the form. You will find that the change reflect in your report.
