This is an archived WebSchemas proposal Activities and Actions (update) for schema.org. See Proposals listing for more. Note: active schema.org development is now based at github

This page tracks a proposal to revise schema.org's approach to activities and actions: Actions in Schema.org.

This work stems from a collaboration amongst the schema.org partners, and supercedes the earlier drafts linked below. Lead editors are Yaar Schnitman <yaar@google.com> and Steve Macbeth (Microsoft). Comments and discussion is welcomed via the W3C public-vocabs@w3.org email list.

It is independent from, but complementary to, the work to add support for Reservations and [[OrdersSchema][Orders]]. Unlike most existing schema.org markup scenarios, some of the expected use cases here involve non-public markup; see the document for details.

Overview (extracted from the pdf)

"This document proposes the introduction of "verbs" to the schema.org vocabulary, in the form of a new Class of Things, called Actions."


  • Next step (alongside public-vocabs discussion) is to generate a machine-readable schema definition. Dan Brickley will do this.
  • Some RDFa examples should be added.
