Kindly provide more information about this ask. How do you plan to use the Action Panel in InDesign? Do you want it to work exactly like that in Photoshop? What are the most important actions/operations that you want to record?

I have a list of repetitive actions, creating a caption setup for multiple files in a book. The Actions Panel would be of great help since we are not allowed to write scripts. It would save so much time just to hit a keystroke that would change all the options in the "caption setup" dialog box. I don't understand why Indesign does not have this option.
