Hello Chinna Sfdc,

You might achieve this with Triggers. Create trigger on Opportunity, When ever opty field is updated, get all tasks on Opportunity and update the value in Task comments. You can filter tasks related to Opportunity based on WhatId.

Hope this helps.

Please mark as best answer if this helps!

Hi Uday,

Thanks for your suggestions.

We written a trigger on opportunity as working expected but i want to include Due date in this trigger Which means DueDate = CreatedBy + 7 days. How to acheive this one .Please find bit of trigger.

    Map<Id,Opportunity> oldOppMap = Trigger.oldmap;
     for (Opportunity Opp: Opps){
         //Check If description got changed
         if(Opp.Helps__c != oldOppMap.get(opp.Id).Helps__c ){
            Task t = new Task();
            t.WhatId = opp.Id;          
            t.Subject = 'Help' + ': '  + opp.Name; 
            t.Description = opp.Description__c;             

Please help us that would be great.

Thanks in Advance

Use the Declarative tool of Salesforce to complete your task.  In the Process Builder check if Description field is changed then update related task Description.

You can also use Flow with process builder to handle it.

Glad it worked for you! You can update due date as follows

t.ActivityDate = opp.CreatedDate.addDays(7); //If you want set due date after 7 days of opportunity creation date
t.ActivityDate = DateTime.now().addDays(7); // to set 7 days after task creation date
