TIP: Use "Confirm before running" setting to protect sensitive actions

Enable the “Confirm before running” setting on those individual actions, and when they are run you will receiving an addition confirmation dialog before execution.

To enable “Confirm before running” on an action:

  • Find the action in the action list.
  • Swipe to the right to expose options, and select “Edit”
  • Scroll down to the “Advanced” section and turn on “Confirm before running”
