I create Sales Activities every day. 

When I create an Activity, I want to be able to have the time that it's starting be the exact time at that moment, rather than having to fill it in every time.  I don't seem to see a way to do that.  I just want it to be the time of day, no need for date, since that's in date created.  

I need this so that i can more easily calculate total time for activities by having automated start time, and then adding in the end time for the activity myself.  Does anyone know also a way I could create a formula that could calculate the number of minutes spent on the activity given the start and end times?  Extra points if you can!

If it is always based on the creation of the record you can use a formula based on the Date Created field:

ToTimeOfDay([Date Created])
