Initial actions are actions that are executed each time a screen is loaded or initialized in an application. These actions are used to initialize elements within the screen, start processes, set default values, execute database queries or perform other important functions while the page is loading.
For example, during the loading of a user's profile screen, you can use Initial actions to load profile information and pull information to be displayed on the screen.
Initial actions can be used when the application screen is selected. The action type may change when elements are selected.
To add Initial actions, while the screen is selected, click +Add Action in the Properties panel.
You can add the action you want by selecting Initial Actions in the action menu.
You can also use system actions as Initial actions considering the distinction in application types.
