The task is created in the task list of the workflow and follows the task behavior of that workflow. This activity implements the CreateTask method by calling ITaskService.

SharePoint Foundation includes several activities that streamline the process of creating, updating, completing, and deleting tasks associated with a workflow. You can also use event-based activities to receive notifications when tasks have been created, changed, or deleted.
