Re: backend action call

I'm not sure at all but I don't think that it could be possible since this could be used for spamming, if the action to run is related directly to the application, you could include it in an AJAX call in application.rhtml and if it is not, put it in a cron job, and I don't know if you could run a cron job each 5 minutes!
