Email and Log Call Missing in Lightning

In Lightning Experience, when I'm on a record and select "Activity", I get only "New Task" and "New Event".  How can I get Email and Log Call on there, like they're supposed to be?

That is a good question, I've been banging my head againt the wall on this too. I'm doing some research, asking on the success community. I'll let you know if I find an answer.
Here is where it is in the release notes, FYI: (

Justin - did you ever get resolution on this?  I'm dealing with the same thing.

On the Page Layout editor, go to the "Salesforce1 and Lightning Experience" section and click on "override the predefined actions" if you see text in that section.
On the top of the Page Layout edit page, under the save button, click on Salesforce1 Actions. This will show you all the available actions. 
Add "Log a Call" and "Send an Email".

The Trailhead is useful for learning about how all this works - see

I did this but at fierst only the Event tab appeared. then I edited the Global actions, cleared my cache and the Log a Call appeared, but the New Task still doesn't appear. I have added and removed and readded several times without any success

Hi guys, we also cope with such problem. But now we have a decision!
When you add actions "Log a Call" and "Sent an email" on page layout, try to change Global Actions. Select "Log a Call" ->Edit  and chose there Call Task Type  in Record Type field. Then go to Set Up-> Profile -> chose one determined profile ->  find field Tasks -> add there Call Task TypeUser-added image

Thanks Penny, Olga and Dogan :)
For anyone else still having this problem. Make sure that Email Deliverability is set to "All Email." When our Email Deliverability was set to System Email only, the Email quick action would automatically be removed from the page layouts we added it to.
