Action Buttons Overview

What Action Buttons are and where you can use them.

Action Buttons are available to all the subscription plans. Button Visibility options depend on the subscription plan. See plan comparison.

Action Buttons are buttons that you can add to List, List Details, Kanban, Table, or Calendar blocks to allow your application users to update the data connected to the block, add new data, navigate to other sections in your app, and more. In particular, Action Buttons let your users perform all of the CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) operations on your application’s data.


The Action Buttons are available from the Actions tab in block settings sidebar and are divided into the following three categories:

  1. Topbar Buttons. Includes the Add Record action and the standard Open Page, Open URL, and Scroll To actions that are discussed in greater detail under on click actions.
  1. Item Buttons. This category includes actions that can be applied to distinct records in your data such as the Update Record, Delete Record, and One-click update. It includes the standard on click actions as well.
  1. Item on Click. In this category, instead of creating a button, you can specify what happens when a user clicks on an item in your data representation.

The only exception is the Kanban block, where there’s also a Drag and drop toggle that lets you choose whether you want to allow your users to drag and drop the board items or not.
