I have created a new custom picklist for an activity type in the Activity Object. This custom field will appear when clicking the "Log A Call" button under the Activity History related list. However, I only want this picklist to appear on the Lead object. I do not want it to show under Account, Opportunities, etc. Is this feasible?
Side note: I've created record types under Tasks and have a different page layout for each; one layout has the new custom picklist field and the other one does not.
When log a call is selected (On any object) it will take you to the page to select a record type and then to the respective page layout. I do not want to expose this screen to my end users so I am looking to see if there is a way to define a default record type based on the object, not on the user profile.
