Actions panel

The actions panel displays the lists of commands available in the section. Many applications feature three standard command groups: Create, Reports, and Tools. The standard groups may not be available and other groups may be available instead.

The Create group contains actions that create Infobase objects, such as documents or list items.

The Reports group contains actions that open report forms.

The Tools group contains actions that open utility tools.

You can adjust the height and width of the panel.  

When you move the pointer over a command, a tooltip with a command description or a link to its description is displayed.
