I have a workflow rule on Quote Object where I have defined a Time-Dependent Workflow Actions which creates a task 3 days before Quote: Expiration Date.The rule is working fine, but when this workflow is creating task the Type field is being defaulted to blank.The Type field is not available when I create a task while defining Time-Dependent Workflow Actions.I have to set the Type field to 'Action' while creating task.

I have also created this workflow rule in process builder, but there as well, I cannot find Type field in Scheduled Actions while creating a task.

is it possible to update Type field without using code?is there a way I can achieve it using process builder?

  • Hey can please check once again in process builder like Type AND Call Type in process builder. @sfdcdev
