Lightning Tools Actions
ightning Tools Actions serves as an ideal companion to Lightning Forms, while also offering standalone usability. This tool offers an alternative to individually accessing list items for updates like Approval Status, resetting values such as holiday entitlement, or sending notifications to creators upon request approval. With Lightning Tools Actions, the creation of new command bar buttons and associated actions becomes seamless, enabling simultaneous execution across multiple selected items.
Take a guided tour of LIghtning Tools Actions
Within this tour, we explore Lightning Tools Actions for use within Microsoft Lists and Modern SharePoint Lists in SharePoint Online. Using Lightning Tools Actions, we easily create command bar buttons to update, or perform actions against multiple selected SharePoint list items.
SharePoint List Action Buttons
Add action buttons to your SharePoint list like this Expense Approval button. The button performs multiple actions on the SharePoint list items such as modifying the Approved field to Yes, Sending an email notification to the Expense Claimant, and Reloading the page. The Line Manager can easily select multiple items and approve them all in one click, rather than visit each item individually.
Adding SharePoint List Action Buttons
SharePoint List Action buttons can be created quickly and easily. There is no coding experience required, and List Owners or Designers can create the buttons and actions within the context of the list itself. Action buttons can also be configured to display only to the user with the rights to perform the action.
Building a series of list actions
Actions that can be configured include Updating field values with simple or complex expressions, sending emails, adding list items, creating list items or folders, running custom script, and calling other workflows.
