Request: Create Site Action

Aug 24, 2011 at 3:32 PM

Thank you for these fantastic actions! I now consider them an essential part of my SP admin toolkit. I know you've probably moved on to 2010 projects now, but I was wondering if it'd be possible to add a "Create Site" action to this solution. Basically what I'm looking for is an action called "Create Site" that allows you to specify the name, location, template, etc. for a new site (basically everything that appears on the newsbweb.aspx screen) as part of a workflow. This is a need that I've seen several times when provisioning projects via SharePoint without Project Server.

You can find this action in the 3rd party commercial set of workflow actions:
