Lightning Tools Actions is a complement to Lightning Forms, but can also be used independently of Lightning Forms. Rather than opening individual items to update fields such as Approval Status, Resetting field values such as holiday entitlement, or sending emails to notify creators of items that a request has been approved, Lightning Tools Actions provides the ability to create new command bar buttons with actions that can be performed against multiple selected items.

Lightning Tools
We use SharePoint to manage over 100 legal litigation cases. We also use SharePoint for all of our internal billing and time keeping. There is great need for different SharePoint sites to be able to have access to other lists and data sources. List Actions provides an easy-to-use interface that we use to implement file copies between sites, workflow tracking of medical records through our medical collections department, send out medical record requests using the enhanced SendMail options. We have automated many tasks that used to take up considerable time and were error-prone. Having the logic of a workflow with all the steps carried out with a click of a button is great. Plus it is very fast.

Superblocks
Superblocks is great for building internal tools for your company. We have our finances running on Superblocks, our client services running on it, as well as a lot of internal tooling for our product. You can build full-apps using their API builder, Workflow builder, Scheduled Jobs, and UI builder. All without having to handle your own infrastructure. It's meant to be one extra abstraction layer on top of other developer infrastructure tools like AWS, Vercel, etc.

Lightning Tools Actions Screenshots

Screenshot of SHAREPOINT LIST ACTION BUTTONS
Action buttons can be added to SharePoint lists, like this Expense Approval button. The button performs multiple actions on the SharePoint list items such as modifying the Approved field to Yes, Sending an email notification to the Expense Claimant, and Reloading the page. The Line Manager can select multiple items and approve them all in one click, rather than visit each item individually.Screenshot of ADDING SHAREPOINT LIST ACTION BUTTONS
SharePoint List Action buttons can be created quickly, with no coding experience required, and List Owners or Designers can create the buttons and actions within the context of the list itself.  Action buttons can also be configured to display only to the user with the rights to perform the action.Screenshot of BUILDING A SERIES OF LIST ACTIONS
Actions that can be configured include Updating field values with simple or complex expressions, sending emails, adding list items, creating list items or folders, running custom script, and calling other workflows.
