Sample Actions

The table primarily contains a list of sample Yate actions. An attempt has been made to categorize each action. Each table item contains a link to the full documentation and a download link.

When reading the Full Description of an action, remember that Yate attempts to convert action statements to some semblance of English. If you are having troubles associating a statement in an action with the defining function, load the action and double click on the statement or select Show Function Help from the statement's context menu.

Note that the HTML describing an action is automatically generated from the action contents. Some artistic license is taken with the following actions to ensure that the entire comment/prompt is visible: Ask, Comment, Dump Variables, Prompt for Text, Start.

The Full Description always contains a content list for the downloaded file and in which Yate version the action was built.

Unzip a downloaded file and do a Yate>Import Preferences... to import the content or simply drag the plist file to the file list area of the main window.

The latest version of the Repair Files from Audio File Health Check Log action can always be downloaded here.
