I would like to create an extension that pulls in activity types from CiviCase and allows creating those activities against a client record using the "Actions" dropdown on the Client Summary page.
If anyone has done this or similar I would be grateful for any advice.
EDIT: The activities need to also be associated with the relevant case types (for reporting and other categorisation needs). Also, they need to be only available for a certain contact type. I'm imagining that attaching them to case types will provide a way of differentiating between them and activities that are available to all contact types.
EDIT2: I now realise this question is a product of my muddled thinking. I'll ask again when I have a clearer idea of what I actually want to achieve!
