Actions V/S Workflows

The concept of Actions and Workflows are very easy to be get confused. Here I have specified some of the key points which differentiate Actions from Workflows in Dynamics 365 applications.

Actions Workflow
Triggers Only can triggered by Code or Processes Can be called by User On-demand or can be called from script
Arguments Supports Input and Output Arguments Does not support Arguments except Custom Workflow Activities
Entity Specification Can define to run for all Entities by selecting the Entity as None(global) Can only be specified on a single entity on design time.
