This question was asked in 2014 and pointed to an enhancement request that hasn't been touched since 2016...has anyone made progress on configuring this task since its not available out of the box?

 If you want such capability, you would have to implement a custom follow-up action/participant. Here is an example that I created some years ago: https://rsjazz.wordpress.com/2012/11/30/a-create-approval-work-item-save-participant/ .


I have created custom preconditions/advisors and follow-up actions/participants for customers in service engagements, including automation for approvals. I have rarely seen two customers with matching requirements. That makes it impossible to put something meaningful into the product, it makes more sense to implement custom extensions.
