    Hi suraj,

    As per salesforce definition:

    An event is a calendar event scheduled for a specific day and time.Examples of events are:

    1)      Meetings
    2)      Scheduled Conference Calls

    A task is an activity not scheduled for an exact day and time. You can specify a due date for a task or there may not be a particular time or date that the tasks or activities need to be completed by.

    Examples of tasks are:

    - A list of phone calls you need to make.
    -  An email that needs to be sent.

     

    This functionality allows users more flexibility in using sales force as a daily task manager.

    Thanks.
