I'd appreciate it if someone "in the know" could verify this and let me know if there is a way to RECTIFY this.
A lead is created. A task is linked to that Lead.
The lead is converted to an Account with Opportunity. The task is linked to the Opportunity and Account (apparently the Opp is the parent and the Account is "only" the grandparent).
The Opp is DELETED. The Task ends up deleted WITH the Opp.
This is not ideal in our scenario. We would like to KEEP the Task when the Opp is deleted. Is there a canned mechanism that handles such needs?
