  • I am not able to understand your question. Do you want additional entities to appear on your customer name lookup? Like system user, leads etc

  • You want a lookup like customer or regarding fields on activities. It's a system thing and no one has developed this feature in a supported way. You can think of following senarios:-

    1. Create an activity instead of entity. You will get regarding field which will have lookup of all the entities. Just hide the entities which you don't want and use the 5 which you want to.

    2. Create 5 relationship which you want then based on selection of a picklist show the lookup of entity.

  • When you create a custom activity(NOT Entity) you get a field of Regarding object Id field.
