I have a primary list and workflow. i create a To-Do task from the primary workflow called "Setup Project Artifact Requirements".

Creating of this task triggers a secondary workflow on the task list called "RACI Status Field Update" that i was HOPING to use to monitor the Task, and when the Task was "Completed" set the value of a field in the primary workflow's associated list called "Project Initiation".

secondary Task List Workflow

is this not possible?? in the workflow actions for the secondary workflow i do NOT see the "set any value" action.

Actions available for secondary workflow

You'd want to use Update List Item, this will allow you to specify what list you want to look up and update.
