        /// <summary>
        /// Trigger an Action in CRM. "parameters" parameter can be optional based on the action called, same for "targetEntity".
        /// </summary>
        /// <param name="ActionName"></param>
        /// <param name="TargetEntity"></param>
        /// <param name="service"></param>
        public static void CallAction(string actionName, StringDictionary parameters, EntityReference targetEntity, IOrganizationService service)
            OrganizationRequest Request = new OrganizationRequest(actionName);

            // Global Actions does not require Target. If not global, You should send a record of the same type of the Action's Entity.
            Request["Target"] = targetEntity;
            OrganizationResponse Response = service.Execute(Request);

            // NOTE: In case that your action is expecting a parameter, send it as the example: Request["<MyParameter>"] = "This is a string parameter sent to the action ";
