Actions in NoCode-X serve to automate logic. They essentially allow you to program without any actual code. Actions can be used in templates and API‘s within the NoCode-X platform. Every action consists of one or more function calls. When dragged onto the grid, they are displayed as blocks. Function calls can be thought of as individual lines of code within a function or method, for those familiar with traditional programming. The action itself is the function or method.
