Looking for an action compressing files

I am looking for a procedure how to use a maestro action for Zip-compressing a file located in a finder folder.
Usually I use the right mouse klick and select the compressing function.
Is there any option to select this compressing action directly, or do I have to record the keyboard sequence.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Kind regards

Hey Alex,

That's an easy one.

The Caret in the 'Menu Item' field turns the text into a regular expression, which is necessary since that menu item is named dynamically according to how many items are selected in the Finder.
