Add a bulk action link to the Shopify admin with app extensions

You can make your apps accessible to merchants wherever action drop-down menus are available in the Shopify admin. For example, when a merchant selects multiple orders on the Orders page of the Shopify admin, the Actions drop-down menu appears. You can use this Actions menu to prompt merchants to use your app, when they complete a bulk action.
