A workflow that runs on Swarm consists of a series of stages. A stage can be either a trigger or a combination of actions. An action can be anything, such as opening a website, clicking a button or sending an email. You can manage actions in your workflow from the flow editor screen in your project, such as adding, editing or deleting an action. The following is the procedure for adding an action.
To add an action, first, you need to create a new stage by clicking the + button under Stages on the flow editor screen.
Then, enter the stage name and click the Add button.
Once you successfully create a new stage, you can add actions to this stage. There are 2 methods to add an action, i.e. creating a new action or copying an existing action.

The first method to add an action is by creating a new action. These are the steps for creating a new action from the flow editor screen.
- Click the + button on the flow editor screen.

- Click Save button.

The second method to add an action is by copying another action. This method is effective if you want to create several actions with similar details. These are the steps for copying an action from the flow editor screen.
