Actions allow your chatbot to perform tasks behind the scenes when the user interacts with your chatbot, such as subscribing a user to stories, scheduling notifications, storing data, running scripts or sending custom analytics.
When a Bot Message or Quick Reply has an action attached, it displays an icon to indicate the type of action that has been configured.
Store the value of the button label or a value you define to the user's context data. You can use this data elsewhere in the chatbot as a variable.
See more information on the Save data configuration fields.

|Subscribe to stories||Subscribe the user to stories.|
|Unsubscribe from stories||Unsubscribe the user from stories.|
|Schedule an event notification||
Schedule a notification for this user. For example, a reminder message for an appointment they have booked.
The date and time the notification is sent is determined by the notification settings, relative to when it is scheduled for the user.
|Unschedule an event notification||
Remove a scheduled event notification for this user. For example, if they have cancelled the appointment, they should not receive a reminder message.
