About the next-generation actions
The difference between it and the previous version
What are the next-generation actions?
The next-generation actions are as the name implies the next-generation of the action functionality within Betty Blocks. An action represents logic that is executed after a certain event, called a trigger. This trigger can be the click on a button of a user or automatically using a schedule (e.g. every night at 10 O’clock). For example, you can create a workflow by adding individual action events with each handling a step in an end-to-end process. A number of different action steps are available for adding to an action, going from a create or update event to http requests (web services), or generating an output file in portable file format (PDF).
What’s the difference compared to the previous version?
The next-generation of actions isn’t just an updated version of the previous generation actions. They are a completely new feature that’s been created from scratch. The goal of the next-generation actions was to ensure stability and performance whilst also improving the speed and ease of use of the previous generation.
Besides its performance, the next-generation actions also received an updated UI. A lot of the elements of the previous generation still resemble within the new UI but a lot of its options have been changed and finetuned.

We will be adding more and more action steps to the next-generation action builder over time to ensure you won’t be needing to head back to the previous environment.
