Is it possible to create a ListItem for each member of a SP 2010 group using the SharePoint Designer Workflow Actions?

Let's say i have 5 people in a group, now the workflow has to create a simple ListItem for each member, with the username as title.

Background: Customer wants a Siteworkflow (not on document/list level. no item context), designed with SPD, that creates a ListItem in a list for each person.

There is no out-of-the-box action available in Sharepoint designer to get users in Sharepoint group. What you have to do is to call a web- service to get the details of the user in group.

You can download following Activity to call web service :
