# Actions

An action is a task that is run for every event created by an app.

An action joins an action type with app data. For example, "Send SMS" would be the action type and "+1-123-123-1234" would be the phone number in the app data.

Some examples of actions could be:

  • Send SMS to +1-123-123-1234
  • Send email to john@example.com
  • Create ticket in the Routegy Trello board
  • Send pager alert to user@example.com via PagerDuty

# Permissions

Actions inherit permissions from their Workspace and its Organization. Read more about permission inheritance here.
