To automatically trigger any action(s) associated with an Action Button, you have to assign a DataChange Workflow which will need at least a Premium plan.

You can also manually trigger actions via button. In Behavior -> Actions -> Your Action -> Appearance, make sure that the button is not ‘Do Not Display’. You can fiddle around with the other options to best fit your usage. (This does not require a plan)

To support this

Depending on the view that you use, you can trigger the action based on a button press. For example, on Form View, you can trigger the action when you click ‘Save’. (UX -> Views -> Form View -> Behavior -> Event Actions)
