Hi Lakshmi,

Greetings to you!

Nothing. The Task is automatically displayed on the Account page. If you create Task/Log A call on contact then it will automatically display on Contact and it's respective Account activity section. 

There are few standard functionalities that Salesforce provides.
If the Task is created for Contact (WhoId is ContactId) then Task's AccountId is populated from Contact's AccountId.

There is also an example for Case creation. From the create Case page, if you select the Contact and don't select Account, then after saving, Case's AccountId is getting populated from Contact's AccountId. (Even if account id is not displayed on UI).

If Account is displayed on the UI, then you will see Account population is automatic based on Contact selection.


I hope it helps you.

Kindly let me know if it helps you and close your query by marking it as solved so that it can help others in the future. It will help to keep this community clean.

Thanks and Regards,
Khan Anas
