Associate Tasks with a Custom Object (Customer List)

How do I create a relationship between tasks and a custom object database - a customer database that I created?

 

I want to be able to assign tasks on a customer.

I dont think task cen be associated with custom objects as Task whoId and WhatId do not support custom object

You can associate task with Custom Object.

 

To enable this feature, you need to choose " Allow Activities" in the Customer Object Definition (Setup =>Create => select custom object => Edit => Optional Feature => check "Allow Activities")

 

Once this is enabled, the Custom Object will appear in "Related To" (WhatID) dropdown list in Task page
