Some of my users are unable to see this tab under the activities timeline. I tried a solution where I would change the record type to a custom record type, but that makes it disappear from my view (System Admin profile).enter image description here

If we have any custom record type on the Activities(Event or Task), we need to create a global action and define the record type on it and add it to the layout.

In my developer org, I have created a record type for Event object and so create Event button disappeared from the activities. After I created a global action and specified the record type and added it to the layout, it again appeared.

  • There's already a New Task global action with the --Master-- record type selected. If I select the custom record type, then it disappears from my view as well.
