If you select: Follow-up task + delete today's task
then additionally a today's task is deleted which meets the following criteria:
•Task status must be open
•Task must be assigned to the Salesforce user who is doing the call
•Task must be from today (Due Date)
•Only if a contact is assigned
•The call was made from this contact
•Task Sub-Type is task (e.g. no task from type e-mail, event or call would be deleted)
This option makes sense to automatically delete the task from today to call the contact and create a new task for a follow-up call.
