Ask for Status

If you simply want to get a status check on a specific Item, and capture information within Tonkean, or send that status update to any other data source, you can use the Ask For Status action. The status provided is added to the Update Text basic field and is also included in the business report.


Name the Action Block

Select the action title or the blue pencil icon, blue_edit_pencil.png, and provide a descriptive title for the action.

Turn Action Block On or Off

By default, action blocks are enabled and turned on. Select the toggle in the top right of the action panel to disable or turn it off.

When building a module, remember you can toggle actions on and off rather than deleting them.
