Issue: You want to add value options to the list within action items. The default has only Approved, Rejected, Approved with Conditions, and Done.
Resolution: Go find the lookup called Process Default Status with an id of PROCESS_DEFAULT_AI_STATUS. This is the lookup that controls the action items values. You can simply add values to this list or deactivate existing values.
