How to initiate a "create new" from the left menu?

I am attempting to simplify some of the steps for our end users by allowing them to just click on (for example) New Product from the left Nav, and use listeners to automatically move the object to the proper place after saving. I am using the Coreshop menu bundle, and can create the left menu, but I am not positive how to launch a new object from there? I am comfortable with the event listener part as well.

Nevermind, got it figured out. I used the “registerNewCustomerAction” from the CMF as a bit of a guide and got it to work.
