CTA and Buttons
Call to action buttons appear in any given workflow to represent and enable completion of task priorities, as such, they are always distinct graphically as well as semantically; a verb is used for example "view" "download" etc
So having four buttons in a row creates a situation where CTA buttons are competing for users attention as well as being not clearly distinguishable. This does not only visually overwhelm users it also distracts them from focusing on what exactly needs to be done. below is a similar example to the one you shared:
Restructure and prioritize
To solve this issue you need to restructure and prioritize the different pieces of information you have in your the table. This will allow you to introduce structure and visual emphasis (icons and white space etc) and help you guide the user attention to the most important calls to action.
To come-up with a structure you could:
- Aggregate actions in logical entities, For example "users" and User "applications"
- Ask your users to provide a prioritized list of actions or groups of actions that they use the most.
- Gather or obtain information about the use frequency for each of these actions.
The result of this exercise should hopefully allow you to layout snippets of information and action points in a manner that is most optimized for the task at hand. Below is a redesign of the table based on the example I shared above:
