System and Method to create different action items for separate applications based on context from a single new application instance

This article proposed a way to allow a user to create action items in the form of different application instances, from a single new instance.

User can choose to send a meeting invite to User1, a todo instance to User 2 and a mail instance to User 3 , from the same new mail instance. Also the user can send mail instance to User 1along with meeting instance. This can be done by selecting the instance type for each name in the To list, as shown in below screenshots.
