To run an action on a card:

    A dialog displays. 
  2. Run the action.
    • For a notification:
      Complete the field with your message, and tap Submit
      Note: Notify actions allow you to send email notifications to recipients based on context. You can leverage default messages or customize them to communicate the exact action you need the recipient to take.
    • For an import:
      Tap Import.
    • For a process:
      Tap Run process.
      Note: A process that contains an export runs all actions apart from the export, as long as the actions do not require files.
    • For a form:
      Complete the form and tap Submit.
      A green tick indicates the action ran successfully. For some action types, this is accompanied by a confirmation message.
    • For data write:
      Tap your chosen data write action.
      A confirmation message displays.
      Note: Data write actions are context aware. If a data write action is grayed out, change your context selectors. 
  3. If the Close button displays, tap Close.
    Otherwise, the action completes and you return to your page automatically.

    A menu displays at the bottom of the screen with an Actions menu item.
