Update custom fields on task record in Flow

I am trying to update a Task using a Flow. The field I want to update is a custom field and therefore technically an "activity" field. How do I get a flow to update a custom field on task? Trying an Event record does not work either.

You should be able to use the object type as Task and achieve it.

Do you have screenshots to share?

The custom fields we added on the Activity object do not show up as options on Task or Event records in the flow. Flow does not allow you to choose Activiy as an object.

The fields I'm trying to write to are checkboxes. Other custom field show, but not these.

AAAAND I now know why they aren't working. My predicessor made them formula checkboxes. Nevermind.

And you do see these fields while creating a Task on the layout. Correct ?
