Items actions


Get Type

Returns the type of every item passed as input. For example, if a URL is passed, this action will return “URL”.


Get Name

Returns the name of every item passed as input. Depending on the input, this could be a file name, the title of a website, the title of a calendar event, etc.



Counts the number of items, characters, words, sentences, or lines passed as input. Note (from Apple, for real) This is just like the Count in Sesame Street, but instead of a vampire, it's a Shortcuts action.


Set Name

Sets the name of the item passed as input.


View Content Graph

Shows the results of the previous action in the Content Graph.
