overwride role request activity description


i created a workflow, where i have role role request acitivies to grant,
revoke or extend roles. everything works fine, but now i have a new
requirement to set the expiration date to the past. As we know, it is
not possible to set a date that is in a past to a role. My idea for a
workaround was to revoke the role and write "expired" to the
description. With the description i could identify the expired role in
the driver event, where i need the information. The Problem is, that i
can't overwrite the description when i revoke or extend the role.

Sure, i could add a entity activity before the role request activity and
change the description, but i don't like this solution.

Has someone a better idea how to solve this?

thanks in advance.
