Activities: Override "Save & New" for Tasks and Events on Edit page

Hello everyone,

 

We have a couple of custom fields on our activities page that we want to be "carried over" when a user creates a task or event from an existing task - or event. We've already replaced the "Create Follow up Task" and "Create Follow up Event" buttons on the view page, but I have not been able to find how to either Override, or replace the "Save & New Task" and "Save & New Event" buttons.

 

Is there a way to create a new button, remove the existing "Save & New" buttons on the edit page, and replace them with the new buttons? The only way I can think of is to create a VF page - but this is not a preferred method right now.

 

Anyone else have any other suggestions?

 

Thanks

"It is not possible to remove the Save & New Event or Task Button from the Task or Event Edit page. You could try removing the Edit Event on the Permissions on each profile to see whether this does not display it."
