I created a Text Field on Account.

I want to create a field on Activity so that my Account Field displays there.

Is that possible? if so, How?

You can create a custom field in Setup > Object Manager > Activities > Fields & Relationships (in Classic, Setup > Customize > Activities > Fields). From there, use the formula type, a return type appropriate for your field, and the formula would use the field relationship path (e.g. Account.Name or Account.Some_Custom_Field__c).

  • curiously, the formula editor for Activities doesn't allow you to point-and-click via the Account relationship; instead, you have to type in manually as noted in the answer.
