Actions are specific steps you take toward securing a donation from a constituent. Actions can be track on constituent records, event records (with RE:Events), appeal records, and proposal records (with RE:Search). This solution outlines the difference between event actions, appeal actions, proposal actions and constituent actions.
Event actions, appeal actions, and constituent actions are all pertaining to different types of records.
Event actions pertain to communications regarding an event (available only with RE:Events).
Appeal actions pertain to communication related to an appeal, a solicitation sent to a constituent for them to donate.
Proposal actions only pertain to a proposal record (available only with RE:Search).
Constituent actions pertain to only that specific constituent.
