Recommendations are a little bit different than the other actions. A recommendation prompts the user to enter a value in a field. You would use the Recommendation action to guide users when they fill out a form. It displays a suggestion bubble with text next to the field with an Apply button.

The following screenshot shows a recommendation as it appears to the user:

The following screenshot shows how to set up the recommendation:

Along with the recommendation is an action that will be performed if the user accepts the recommendation. In the following screenshot, a set value is used to set the VIP field to Yes:

When you add a recommendation action, a single set value action is added automatically.
