Creating Custom Workflow Activities and Actions for SharePoint 2013
A workflow activity is a building block of a workflow and a basic unit of workflow execution, which bases on various level of platform libraries. Workflow actions are wrapper objects that encapsulate these underlying activities and present them in a user-friendly form in SharePoint Designer. This session will go over how a developer can create a custom activity along with a custom action, within Visual Studio, and then have that new action show up in both SharePoint Designer's Text-Based Designer and Visual Designer. We will dive deep into creating a new custom declarative activity that calls into a custom web service, and then wrapping that activity up into an action.
