Hi Anusha,

As per my suggestion is Using Process Builder.

For Example of create an automatic task in the Opportunities object

You might have to have 2 Process, first one, starting Object = Opportunity, when it is created
- Condition - Stage = Lead
- Action - Create Record - Select Task, and make sure you have the highlighted fields filled in as such:

Then your second process would be:
- Object = Opportunity, when it is created or edited
- For each stage you will have a criteria and your actions would be Create Task, with again the highlighted fields are filled like above.

Activate both Processes

Please mark it best answer if it helps you.
