I have about 17 medium sized workflows. Each of them has a process where they create a list item after a task is completed. I want to simplify the process by putting it into a user defined action so I don't have to update it in 17 places each time - however I am not finding the option to Create a List Item in the Actions for a UDA. Am I missing something or is this just not possible?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I've thought about that as a work-around but was hoping it would be more straight forward like it is for everything else. Funny I can create a list or even a site from a UDA but not a simple list item?
I don't see the option to create any item. I can Copy or Update even delete but not create? It seems wrong. These are the options I get under List/Library Actions.

I am also a system admin. I did double check manage allowed actions, but I can see it is enabled (as I suspected because I can create an item from a Site or List workflow just not a user defined action). Unless there is someplace to enable actions specifically for UDAs that I am overlooking?
ETA: However in CA I did find the Create Item in another Site! And it does show up in UDA! Thanks so much. Getting things to format for the Web Service is such a pain!
You do not have the following workflow action (in red circle) when creating an UDA?
There is indeed no 'Create item' workflow action when creating an UDA workflow.
