General Task Process Seems to do the same thing as Assign Item For Approval CORE ACTIONS Add a comment Similar to "Log to History List" Set Workflow Status You can use this action to set a custom workflow status column LIST ACTIONS Used to declare an item/document as a record for Records Declare Record management. Inherit List Item Parent With this action you can set the permissions to inherit from its Permissions parent list or folder (first unique ancestor) Remove List Item This action clears all permissions set on this list item – no Permissions access for non-site collection admins Replace List Item This action deletes all the permissions on the item (or breaks Permissions inheritance) and assigned NEW permissions to that object.
