How to disable Task when Converting Lead in Salesforce

There is already solution for "Do not create new opportunity upon conversion" in the Lead convert process.
That is really awesome post, If you didn't know about it check this link

But many of the customers are posting in salesforce community and also in Salesforce Idea that they don't want to create Task also when converting the Lead to Account.

I thought that by writing code or creating custom page will give solution to the problem.
But the answer is so simple, I believe this will give solution to the users

Just follow this simple steps..

Click YourName-->setup-->Customize-->Activities-->Task Page layout
Then Click Edit to the Page Layout, now Pagelayout window will appear as shown in the screenshot


Move mouse pointer to the Subject field,now wrench icon will appear click that to edit the subject field properties.
Then disable the Required check box and click save and close.

Now Convert the Lead into Account without entering the task details

Note:-
We can't make the changes for Status and Priority, even though it is required field it won't create task when converting the Lead

I believe this gives solution to following IDEA

Avoid Duplicate Records Using Flow

In this blog post lets see how to avoid duplicate records in Salesforce using the powerful feature – Flow , As the word says, flow easily flows to fulfill the requirements with ease. ☺  Many think of appexchange solutions and source code to avoid the duplicate record in salesforce, But the method I'm going to explain here is completely different and very simple. It helps you to reduce your code and can easily rebuild for other objects with different field logic with simple clicks. Lets jump into the solution, we will use flow to check duplicate record logic and use apex trigger to initiate the Flow whenever a record is created or updated.

Export records from List view – ListView API

I was started exploring more about the List view API and trying to build an use case using that. So I searched about List View in the IdeaExchange site then found that many users are looking for a solution to export records to excel directly from the list view. I built a solution for that Idea, which helps user to download all the records directly from the List view for both standard and custom object. You don’t have to make any change in the code to use this functionality for different objects. All you need is to create a custom button for that object as mentioned below. Lets take an example for Account object 1. Go to Setup –> Accounts –> Buttons, Links and Actions 2. Click ‘New Button or Link' 3. Enter  Label, Name and select display type as ‘List Button’ 4. Content source as “Onclick Javascript” and paste the
