How to pre default field values when a new record is created

Is there a way to predefault task due date to current date when a new task record is created? Also is it possible to copy over field data such as country or state from a contact record onto a new activity record created for this contact?
Do you have enterprise or above? This can be done with apex trigger- task on create..  you'll need to check the task whatId to retrieve the value from the contact.. unless you have a different primary identifier..
trigger task on create(
// set due date
// retrieve the update field
// update the field at task level
sorry whatid value is on the Task entity
