Action buttons allow you to perform actions on calls (such as answering or transferring) or actions that result in a call being placed (such as dialing a number or contact).

Action buttons are contextual. That means they only appear on a line/entry when you move the mouse over that entry and when the corresponding action can be performed on that entry.
