CRM Extension > Custom Action

Hi Team,

I'm building the CRM extension, which includes Custom Actions.

If we create a Custom Action as "New"  and set the custom function as `info "test";` we can able to execute.

If we create a Custom Action as "New First"(i.e with space) and set the same custom function, we are getting an error as "Syntax error. Expecting namespace or function name. Found 'First'" while executing.

If we edit the existing Custom Action "New"(without space) to "New Function", we are getting error as
"Syntax error. Expecting 'throws','sendmail','sendsms','break',function call statement,'pushnotification',assignment statement ,'try','if','for',invokeurl statement,'return',invokeintegration statement,'continue' or 'cancel'. Found 'New'."

Can you please help us with why we can't create Custom Action with space and can't edit existing Custom Action to include space?

Also,  I'm not sure the vfw1 value is generated in Workflow, we didn't give this value in the function definition.

Please share a sample Custom Action function or help us with documentation to clearly explain how to configure the function Custom Action.

Sample Function where we face this issue,

                                  Just trying out the Contact Info Extractor plugin and had a quick observation.  Since a target website for this plugin would be LinkedIn, I'm very surprised that the plugin cannot determine that if the selected text in question includes... Joe Smith Vice President at ABC Corporation ... the plugin can recognize the name and title but not the company.  I'd assume that the term "at" would give it the needed clue but on several contacts I tried to add, it's just not catching it.

                                  Understanding your customers and educating them about your product are two sides of the same sales coin. During a sales process, to educate your potentials about your product, you may have to send them user guides, help documents, comparison sheets, and white papers. During negotiation, price quotes and invoice documents might also be sent. While the whole lead-qualifying process can be updated in your CRM, sending and receiving the documents needs some extra help. Things can get cumbersome over
