I have created an action for activity based on task. I have removed a few fields from the form, so the fields in the image (activity type, comments) are created by me and those are the only ones show on the activity tab for this action.

I want to remove the type field, cause that is confusing to show in the details. How can I remove it from the details?

Here is the layout I have: enter image description here

clicking here to go to details: enter image description here

Here is the action under account: enter image description here

How can I remove the type field only for this action? enter image description here

Based on the comments - you seem to be asking to modify the Compact Layout. If that's the scenario, then refer to steps below:

  • Object Manager --> Task
  • Go to the Compact Layouts
  • Remove the Type field from the Selected Fields list enter image description here

For details, refer to the Compact Layouts docs.

  • It's not there in the layout. I removed it. It shows up in the detail though.

  • Is this a regular details page or on a quick action layout?

  • I have updated my answer, it seems you are viewing a record's details page and that you will need to edit the respective page layout for that purpose.
