Actions are auxiliary internal blocks that helps customize the actions of the chatbot. Actions are not directly visible to users like text messages. They are needed for the internal setup of the funnel.
Where to find "Actions"?
There is a separate block to adds actions in multi-step flows. The block can be added at any stage of your funnel.
By clicking 'Add Action', you will find a list of possible actions the can be added to the flow scenario.
In broadcasting you can add an "Action" button. When the subscriber clicks on it, the action will be performed.
You can add "Actions" when setting up automation by keywords or accepting payments. The action will be performed if the automation is successful: for example, after receiving a payment or entering a keyword.
The list of available actions in buttons and multi-step flows is slightly different.
