Create Custom Activity Fields
Create two custom activity fields named "Follow-Up Date" and "Follow-Up Subject" in Salesforce.
Create a Custom Log a Call Action
Navigate to the Opportunity object and create a custom "Log a Call" action. Add the newly created fields, "Follow-Up Date" and "Follow-Up Subject," to the action's layout.
Modify the Opportunity Page Layout
Open the Opportunity page layout and replace the out-of-the-box "Log a Call" action with your custom "Log a Call" action.
Create a Record Triggered Flow
Create a record-triggered flow that generates a follow-up task if both the "Follow-Up Date" and "Follow-Up Subject" fields are populated. Additionally, set the flow to blank out the follow-up information on the current task.
Activate and Test the Flow
Activate the record-triggered flow, test it to ensure it's functioning correctly, and you're good to go.
