How to stop wasting your time?

There is a way to stop wasting your priceless time on the same set of actions you do in Fibery periodically. We have created special functionality for configuring these actions one time using a simple and intuitive editor. Please meet the Action Buttons feature which can be found at the bottom of the type configuration area.



How to add or edit the Action Button?

The adding button is a simple one.

  1. Click +Add Button link in the Action Buttons section of type editor.

  2. Provide a name for your button

  3. Add and configure actions you want to be executed on button click from entity view.

There is no limit for actions count. You may set up as many as you want.


An example of the action button with two actions configured can be found below.


The created button will appear in Action Buttons section.


How to find and click my action button?

You may wonder where the created button can be found and clicked.

  1. Navigate to an entity you want to apply the configured actions

  2. Click entity view menu

  3. Find the name of your button and click
