hey there, first you will need to add the field to the task/event page layout. If you want the field to appear in the New Task/New Event action in lightning, you will need to add the field to the New Task/New Event global action layout via Setup > User Interface > Global Actions > Global Actions > and look for the layout link next to the New Task/New Event actions.

This is what I have after adding the new field to the layout.

Hi Zhen,

Thanks for your reply. But In my case, I am not able to find Global Action . Nothing shows up. Do we need some other set up. Thanks

No other setting to enable that. You should be able to see the settings if you are admin.

Hi Zhen,

One more thing I am pointing out here,If I am clicking New Task--> it will only displaying few field --> I am selection whatever I need ---> save---> then open My same Task---> Then I am able to see "Detail page" and eveything is showing up. So this is the way Task and Event work in Lighting platform.

ahh i see you are in classic mode. In classic, you will need to go from Setup > Create > Global Actions > Global Actions.

Hi Zhen,
I got it. I check my global action layout (Image one). My field is present but still it is not displaying in detail page(Image two). I have to do something else. Please see the attachments.
Thanks
