Red Action - Action with commit inside

On our radar
Many times you want to develop an action that should commit only when you know a transaction is final and only at this point should be commited.
But... sometimes you put inside a action a call to other action and if you dont have carefull to verify if this action as a commit inside (and this can have to be a recursive carefull...) you can start introducing a commit where you dont want in your initial action, and that can be a problem.
A action that contains a commit could turn red when inserted inside other action, so that the developer had the visual impact of the "blind" commit on his action.

I think what you want is something similar to how git works right?

You can commit, many times, locally then when you are done you push the changes to the server.

I think what José means is that when a user action has an CommitTransaction action in it's flow, it should change color (red) if used/dragged inside another user/screen action.

It would be nice, indeed...
Interesting... I wouldn't quite consider that specific color change, but some visual cue that could do the trick would certainly be welcome and save a lot of trouble. Great idea José!!

Good idea! It will help to prevent future problems.
