Contact Owner to be Account Owner (By Default)


I want the Contact Owner to be the Account Owner, when the user creates a new COntact. I can see that a Field Update on Contact Owner is not an option.

What else can be done to accomplish this? (with some examples, if possible)



I tried to do this with a workflow but was not able to find a way to set the Contact Owner to the account owner using the field update.

I would say that the next option would be to use an APEX Trigger and Code.


Thanks, I'll give that a try.
