Groups

One of the example groups demonstrates how you can incorporate actions with apps that support URL schemes. If any of these apps aren't installed on your device and you select one, the App Store will launch providing you with more information about the app.

Composing Actions

The Action Composer automates most of the process for you. Here you can see the ability to enter a name for the action, along with the option to customize the icon or schedule it to run at a specific time.

Extra information

Some actions require you to input extra information, either when you first set it up or when it runs. If you're unsure of what the required information is, just tap on the question mark icon.
