I have a Multi-pick list field in Activity, I want that field to be added in Compact layout of Task object.

The Compact layout displays all the fields in the Available field section except Multi-pick list field. I need the Multi-pick list field to be displayed in the available section.

Please help me in accomplishing the above.

Thank You in Advance.

You cannot display a multi-select picklist in a compact layout. Refer to the below excerpt of unsupported field types in compact layout from the documentation.

Compact layouts support all field types except:

  • text area
  • long text area
  • rich text area
  • multi-select picklist
  • Okay. Thank You so much. Is there any other way that I can display Multi-pick list field to be available on Task during the creation of a record, while that Task is related list of Opportunity/Accounts etc..(In Lightning Experience) Sep 11, 2018 at 13:45
  • That classifies as a separate question. You may like to open a new one with details.
