An Action node is used to carry out an action either via the client (local client on the workstation) or via the server. The possible actions as well as the possible conditions are summarized in logical groups (e.g "Project" and "Premiere") and not every action makes sense for every trigger. The prerequisites for the logical application of an action are many and vary from case to case. An action can be executed synchronously or asynchronously depending on the amount of time the action takes.
