Benefits of Metronome (Actions)
Metronome (Actions) provides the following benefits:
Streamlined Configuration. Configure connection details on a per-event basis, rather than for the destination as a whole.
Easy access to data. The event variables picker shows you all the available data from the event you use to test the Trigger. Variables are clearly labeled to ensure they stand out from other text and markup.
