Currently the setting at civicrm/admin/setting/preferences/display?reset=1 (pls don't ask why it is a Display Preference!) is just an On/Off switch.

Looking in to providing an extension so the Activity Types could be specified to include/exclude.

Anyone taken any steps in this direction already?

Yes! This is one of the use cases described for CRM-20638 It provides a hook that your extension could use to select which activity types to include/exclude. There is a PR from May waiting for review if you can help with that.

  • Yes, that's me - one of the more creative misspellings of my name! Great to meet Gemma at Civicon. Thanks for having Jitendra look at this - it's ready for review.
