access permission to user/profile

How to give access permission to user/profile on the field  'LastActivityDate' as i can not see this field name in field permission table(setup ->manage user -> profiles ->Object Settings->field permission

LastActivityDate will be available if the "Allow activities" checkbox under Optional Features is ticked in the custom object's setup page. You will not see this field in the field permission table as it is a System field and is automatically updated.

Hi Shephali,

LastActivityDate is only available if the "Allow activities" checkbox under Optional Features is ticked in the custom object's setup page. If it is not checked, this system field will not be available through the API. 

Here is the SFDC article for the same.

Below is the navigation

Setup --> Build --> Create --> Objects --> Click corresponding object --> Click Edit --> You should see the "Allow Activities" checkbox in the "Optional Features" section below.

Go to Contacts (tab) --> Click on Edit Layout (top right) --> Click Related Lists (top left pane) --> Drag and Drop Activity History to one of the sections below. You should then see the Activity related list for your Contact records.
