Sales Reps wanted to be able to quickly get to the Contact details when assigned a Opportunity related task. When creating a Task via Object workflow for Opportunity object, the contact field in a task is not set.
It is also not possible to drill directly to an Opportunity from the task.



An Object Workflow has been defined, to create a Task.

An Opportunity is created with a Primary Contact set


The subsequent task is created.  The field "Contact" has no value set.
The [$PrimaryContactPartyName$] does have a value, but there is no link to the contact, so would involve copying the name, and finding it on Contacts.
