NITRO Custom Actions provide business process automation on demand. Custom Actions share many of the same data processing features as NITRO Workflows such as item creation and updates, sending emails, running scripts and web services, however custom actions are triggered manually by pressing a button in the Display Form, List View or selecting the action from an Edit Control Block, rather than automatically as they are in Workflows. Custom Action processes can be performed for a single item or multiple items, depending on how they are configured.
•Item-level actions – Create, Update or Copy Item(s) to another list
•Upload and generate documents
•Run scripts and web services
•Run NITRO workflows
•Run a Microsoft Flow
•Update multiple items in a single click
•Use conditions to add logic or restrict actions

Accessing Custom Actions
Custom Actions can be accessed from the List Ribbon, List Settings, or NITRO Studio App Page.
When accessed from the List Ribbon or List Settings, the list is known and the app will not prompt to choose a list.
When accessed from NITRO Studio, the list is not known and a drop-down appears where the list can be selected.
See Accessing the Apps for more details.
