Sorry for my English. It is my second language. I'm currently looking for new job and I'm completely new to Salesforce, and this company is willing to hire me if I do test activity in Trailhead on my own, but I can't seem to figure out how to do 1 particular bit:

  1. Create a custom object ‘Participants’ with a lookup relationship to the Contact Object + (this part I managed to do)
  • and to the Activities (Event) object.
  • Add the Participants related list to the Event page layout.

I'm googling and googling for a few hours now, but no luck. I would really appriciate any help.

  • There is not much need to Google. If you cannot find the Event or Task on lookup list, it is likely not supported. salesforce.stackexchange.com/questions/82098/…

  • Alirhgt, but they are having some workaround in mind I think, otherwise they wouldn't put it there for beginner? May 9, 2021 at 16:42
  • When you create a custom object, there is an option to check "Allow Activities". It will provide you an option to have WhatId (label: Related To) associated to the custom object. May 9, 2021 at 19:00

When you create a custom object, there is an option to check "Allow Activities". It will provide you an option to have WhatId (label: Related To) associated to the custom object.

  • Thanks. I did that, but no idea how to proceed to connect it to Event object still. Can you please show me the right direction? May 9, 2021 at 20:14
  • Populate the WhatId of Activity with the related custom object record. You should have a Activities related list on page layout. You shall see the list of activities in the related list. May 10, 2021 at 0:36
  • Okay, but how do I do that? I only managed to find "Related to" field in Event object. I can't find any fields for Activity object. May 10, 2021 at 9:04
  • The "Related To (WhatId)" field is a polymorphic field can accept many types of record ids other than Contact/Lead. Please read this post and documentation mentioned here: salesforce.stackexchange.com/questions/215196/… May 10, 2021 at 17:47
