Omni Automation Plug-Ins

Omni Automation Plug-Ins are a great way to deliver organized contextual automation tools for Omni applications hosted on macOS, iPadOS, and iOS.

Omni Automation plug-ins may created as either solitary files containing a single “action” or as bundle files containing or more actions, libraries, and other supporting files and images.

This section covers all aspects of plug-in creation and management, including the use of Action Forms that provide user interfaces for your automation tools.
