There are two types of action steps in all flows: (1) Generic Action step, which is defined by an Administrator and requires you to take some type of action before completing the step, and (2) Launch Workflow, which runs the Workflow Wizard, allowing you to select the team to complete the steps in a pre-defined workflow that is then added to the profile.
There are two additional types of actions steps in a contract flow: (1) Create, which runs the Creation Wizard, allowing you to select the template to use in creating the contract, which is then stored in the Documents screen in the Profile, and (2) Launch eSignature, which runs the eSignature Package Wizard, allowing you to send a document for electronic signature.
