Using a web service to perform updates when initiator's permissions are set to Read

If you use the "Set item permissions" action to drop back the workflow initiator's permission to "Read", the workflow will run using those permissions. Anything that requires "Contribute" or greater permissions (for example, creating an item, writing to the task list) will not work. This document shows how to use a web service to update an item with another account. You can substitute other web SharePoint web services to perform different functions.
