not a snippet..
1. you have to do this from a Participant, NOT and Advisor.. an Advisor cannot modify the environment.

but, there are not very many public apis

do you want with or without the UI (u see the UI when u pick Workitem, create)..

with the UI
you will probably have to use internal classes to create the supporting elements for this method.

without the UI is harder.. there are no exposed class methods,
so you will have to take a risk that these will not change too often.

you'll probably need classes in and

I have modified a some of this code in the process of trying to built general enhancements, but not attempted to add external code to do the tasks you asked about.

you can see the code in the plugins when using eclipse. Use the plugins view, right click on a plugin, import as source.
