The following sample script is useful to transform a list that contains many action links into a single dropdown select box.

This solution is tested on the list with list template "Table - Classic" and with "Display Row Actions in Single Column?" enabled.

Place these codes in Userview Builder > Settings.

Custom Javascript
window.addEventListener('load', function () {
        $("tbody:visible > tr:visible").each(function(){
            var currentRow = this;
            actionLink = $("li.action-link-modal").clone();
            if($(this).find("td.row_action span.row_action a").size() > 0){
                $(this).find("td.row_action span.row_action a").each(function(){
                    $(actionLink).find("ul").append( "<li>" + $(this).prop("outerHTML") + "</li>");
                $(currentRow).find("td:last").append( actionLink );
    //}, 1000);
}, false);

The script above will affect all datalist in the app. If you want to only apply it to a certain datalist, change line 3 accordingly by prepending the datalist ID.

This is how line 4 will look like after appending the datalist ID.

$("#requestListAll > tbody:visible > tr").each(function(){
Sub Header
<li class="action-link action-link-modal dropdown" style="display: none; list-style: none; margin: 15px;">
    <a data-toggle="dropdown" class="btn dropdown-toggle waves-effect btn waves-button waves-float" aria-expanded="false">
	     <span class="caret"></span>
    <ul class="dropdown-menu">
