Optional and Skipped Actions

You may have a testing scenario where you need to skip an Action or make it optional

-Optional Action: The test will continue regardless of the pass or fail result of an Optional Action. This can be used for elements that may change frequently.
-Skip Action: This Action will not be carried out at all during test execution. This can be useful if a test case flow is temporarily changed and you don't want to edit the entire test. Skipping provides an easy option to carry out a/b workflows for comparison.
