The definitions of actionable include:
1. giving sufficient reason to take legal action, for example a lawsuit against a school which did not grant a student admission.
2. able to be done or acted on; having practical value, for example coaching a student about academics/extracurriculars to increase likelihood of admission to an elite or ivy league school.

Which type of "actionable information" have you been seeking with this thread?
