Default value for Activity Custom Field

Hello, was wondering if it's possible to set a default value, with a formula, for a custom field in an Activity.  I want to insert the Time Zone from the Lead or the Account page in this field by default when a task is created.

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

I guess its not possible with a formula feild. You might need to go for a trigger.
