The Create List Item step is used to create items in lists. Examples of an item could be a risk, a task, or similar, but it can also be used to create documents in libraries, e.g., documents from templates. It typically takes input from an Item Form step in which users provide meta data for the item. The Create item step then takes that meta data and creates an item from it in the specified location.
