What is an Action?

An action is simply a single use of an Encodian action within Power Automate or a conversion action using Encodian Vertr for SharePoint Online.

For Encodian Flowr, we have two types of actions.

  • Utility actions (name prefixed with "Utility - ")
  • All other actions

An Encodian subscription provides a single credit allowance that can be used for Flowr Utility actions, all other Flowr actions and Vertr.

A single use of an Encodian action will consume:

  • Standard action: 1 credit (see exceptions below)
  • Utility action: 0.05 credits on paid plan and trial (i.e. 20 single uses = 1 action), 1 credit on free plan

The following example shows a flow instance using two Encodian actions:
