There are a wide variety event actions throughout Budibase. These can be split into four different types: Data, Application, Form and Logic actions.

Data actions

As the title implies, these actions revolve around data. They involve tasks like retrieving data from different sources (like REST APIs or external databases), refreshing data sources, or making changes to data (such as updating rows in a database). You can view this here.

Application actions

These are actions that can happen at any time in your application. They include things like displaying notifications, opening side panels or pop-up windows, logging out users, and even activating automated processes. This can be found here.

Form actions
