Contact and task



I want to create a field in contact object and check through that field if there is a task or not.

Ex.: if there is not task the field show some value that there is no task  and vice -versa...


I need help on this....appreciated , any idea, solution, approach...


thank you




Well, using the out-of-the box functionality, you can run a report which says whether a contact has Tasks or not.

It also displays open and closed tasks too.

To do so. go to reports tab, select custom report type and select 'Activities' from pick list. and then select "Activities with Contacts".


what is that you want to achieve with a custom field on contact having tasks or not?.


Hi Sales4ce,


The thing I need is ...


when a contact is created, it even has an associated activities with task.


I can get into activities and see for associated task of the contact, I don't want to do that rather just in the contact want to see that ....with a custom field....
