I need to create a Custom Action that's displayed in the Action list for a Workflow.

How would I go about this?

  • Can you be more specific? SP2007 or 2010? SPD 2007 or 2010? Custom Action or do you mean Activity?

There are many example of this on the Internet. Here is one of them:

SPD 2010 Custom Workflow Activity

  • Dead link... when you post answer, you should include part of the solution in the post, instead of a simple link, to avoid this issue.

    I think he is talking about Custom Workflow Activities, in which case your links don't apply. Commented Aug 1, 2011 at 15:17
