Customized New Event Window

I'm a beginner VisualForce user. On my front burner is the challenge of customizing my New Event "Related To" field -- I need to remove some of the Drop Down options and default to a custom object, as show in the picture. Would greatly appreciate help pointing me toward a solution.


 

 

Thanks in advance.

The picklist values for Related To are based on the objects that the current user has acess to. You cannot remove items from this list - without using Javascript - without removing access to these objects. If that is appropriate - if your users will not ever need to see Assets, Cases, or Contracts - then by all means remove their access via profile - and they will disappear from this list.

 

It is possible to use a Javascript hack to remove items from the DOM. I don't recommend it, but if you want some sample code, look here:

To set a default on the Related To field, you can use a custom URL hack, similar to the sample code here:

Obviously, in this case, you would use evt3_mlktp instead of tsk3_mlktp. For more information on standard field IDs for URL hacking, look here:

Good luck!
