Four51 Document Actions are a collection of Pageflex Document Action scripts made available to members who have completed Certified Designer Course (Formerly Level III Pageflex Training). The defined actions are provided to help you modify documents more easily. Pageflex defines document actions as:

Document actions are scripts you write to modify a document directly, using the Pageflex Document Action API. Document actions are executed by Pageflex Server in the context of a particular job or session, or by Pageflex Studio when previewing a job. You can define a series of document actions to be performed every time a particular job is executed or previewed.

Four51 has identified many common methods of document and data manipulation and published these in the Four51 Actions assembly. You are free to leverage the power of these actions in any of your projects. The development of additional methods will be a continuing process.
