How do I add a Search Layout to the Tasks Object (Lightning Exp)?

I am trying to update the 'Tasks' landing page to reflect a search layout that can be sorted on various details such as Priority or Due Date. However, the Task Object does not have a 'Search Layout' assigned to it in the Object Manager.

Ideas?

Hi Nicole,

You can give a try:-

When using Setup in the Classic Interface

Customize > Activities > Activity Search Layouts > Edit (Activities List View) --> add which you want to see

When using new Setup in Lightning Experience

Platform Tools > Objects and Fields > Object Manager > Activity > Search Layouts > Drop Down on List View > Edit

From here edit the search layout according to your requirement.

​NOTE:
Search layout configuration options are not available for the Activity (Task or Events).
