Create a new page layout for the Task page.
You can create a new page layout under
yourname | setup | Activities | Task pagelayout then click new to create a new page layout and assign to the all user profiles.

How do I change the default setting for the Send Notification Email checkbox for Tasks?



1. Go to the Home Tab (If you have an existing Task, click the Edit button, skip step 2 below, and go to step 3 below).  
2. Click the New button under My Tasks.
3. Click the "Send Notification Email" checkbox to either add or remove the check.
4. Click on the "Make this the default setting." checkbox, that appears under "Send Notification Email", to insert a check.
5. Save Task


NOTE: This default setting will apply to all Task creation/edit pages under all objects and related lists throughout the application, and can be changed back the next time a non-default value is selected.  For example, if you select "false" as the default, the next time you select "true" for the checkbox, you should be prompted with the "make this default setting" option again to make the "true" value the default if desired.

Can anyone help?
