Copper keeps a record of activities for People, Leads, Opportunities, and Companies. The Activities API allows you to view, create, edit, and delete activities. Activities behave uniquely in that deleted activities can be accessed through the API. However, they will appear only as stubs, identical to the response returned by the delete method, and cannot be modified.

Only "User" type Activities can be created or modified using the developer API. "System" type Activities are read-only.
