How to Log Activities in Salesforce

Log Activities

You can use activities in Salesforce to track all important tasks and events related to your leads and customers.

View Activities

  1. Find and open the record where you want to log an activity.

    Activities can be logged on most Salesforce records.

  2. Scroll down until you can see the Activities list.

    Activities are usually located further down the page.

    There are usually two activity lists:

    • Open Activities: Tasks you haven't completed yet.
    • Activity History: Completed tasks, past events, and any important activity you might have logged.
