How to find HTML name of Action Group and run
Second, how do I call it in JS to run the action group?
Thanks in advance for the help.
Thank you once again Wheels. I'll give this a try next week and mark it as answering the question once I see it works. I never would have gotten there on my own.
Slightly related follow up question. Do actions within an action group run synchronously or asynchronously? So if I have three actions in a group in this order - A1, A2, A3 and A1 is using a variable's value and A3 is resetting the same variable's value is that safe or a potential race condition?
Thanks again for the help.

Wow, great question!
With the default settings they will run synchronously (in order).
If you add a "delay" then the actions would run asynchronously.
This can be useful but complicates things as you can imagine.
Sometimes I use delays on navigation actions because if those are done synchronously they can cause unexpected results. Like if there is a Go To Next Page action with a set complete status action immediately after it. Most likely the completion would not be set, and it might not be obvious to the course author. We've talked about modifying navigation actions internally to run asynchronously but have not done that yet.
