When working with lists of data, you can use the Actions control to apply an operation to a single record, or to multiple records. The Actions control lists the operations that can be applied to the selected records. For example, while working in the Manage Products list, you can select multiple products, and use the Actions control to change their status from “Disabled” to “Enabled,” update attributes, or delete them from the database.

The selection of available actions varies by list, and the action selected. For example, when changing the status of a group of records, a Status box with additional options appears next to the Actions control.
