Description

Not sure if this is needed for all pages but it could help users.

I just looked at the OSD page which is crowed by actions.

There are two ways to implement it,
as an modal that triggers the action modal,
or as an modal that describes what to do in order to trigger the action.

The second approach could be implemented globally and not only for a specific page as it could search through every page actions that are available.

How the modal should look like?
It should be pretty straight forward like an FAQ search.
If you open it you will see a big input field to type in words that describe what you want to do.

The string will be used to calculate a score for each available description. Than the highest ranked actions (3, 5 or 10?) will be shown, sorted by rank.

The action will shown as accordion showing the description of it if expanded and the button to take the action or the help text to get to the page and action.

As said in the beginning, I'm not sure if we need this.
